AllMusic Review by

Another member of the Wu-Tang Clan, La The Dark Man is another Killer Bee out of the hive. Blessed with blazing hot tracks from producer Carlos "Six July" Broady ("T.O.N.Y.," "Can't Hold Me Down"), La kicks verses with his unique style. Guest appearance from Raekwon ("Springwater," "Az The World Turns"), Ghostface Killah (Wu-Blood Kin"), U-God and Masta Killah ("Element of Surprise") and Havoc of Mobb Deep ("Figaro Chain") keep the debut release from La rockin' deep into its eighteen tracks. The album features tracks produced by Broady as well as RZA ("Polluted Wisdom"), Muggs ("Heist of the Century"), 4th Disciple ("Fifth Disciple," "Love") and Havoc ("City Lights"). Other tracks to check out are "Lucci," "Gun Rule" and "4 Souls." HEIST OF THE CENTURY is packed with streetworthy jeep-jams and mind elevating lyrics, courtesy of some of hip-hop's brightest MC's.
