Junior M.A.F.I.A. “Lyrical Wizardy” (prod by Akshun) 1995
I remember when I use to bump Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s Conspiracy album when I was younger, and always thinking besides B.I.G, Klepto might have been the nicest in the group. He seemed like the most natural MC out of all of them besides B.I.G., and he wrote all his rhymes, had witty punchlines, a nice flow and great delivery. He even held his own on the back and forth rappin on "Oh My Lord" with B.I.G, even though B.I.G owned that track. One thing that stood out about his voice, was he had a slight lisp, isn’t it kind of funny how a lot of great/good MCs have lisp (B.I.G., Kool G Rap, Rhymefest, Method Man, RA the Rugged Man). Unfortunately, I’ve never been able to find anything about Klepto ever since. I don’t think he ever released a solo album, or did much outside of Junior M.A.F.I.A.
The song “Lyrical Wizardy” is my favorite song off the album (along with "Oh My Lord" and "Realms of Junior M.A.F.I.A"). MC Klepto rode that beat spittin bars on one of the best tracks on the albums. In the song Klepto says he’s 15 years old, If dude was really 15 on that track, man dude was pretty ill, with the vivid details he was giving on guns, drugs, and the street life.
