5.0 out of 5 stars YES! April 25, 2006
By ?
Format:Audio CD
YES, YES, YES!. This is classic 1994. Personally, I think that this is the best album to come out of the hiero camp, though Del's No need for alarm/Future development comes close. I peeped this album after I heard the (classic) track Go Back to school...I was not dissapointed. Extra Prolific is a phenomenal MC and his smoothness is next to none. Ex P justifies himself with this album, offering everything a fan of fresh early-mid 90's hiphop will love; satisfyingly brilliant beats, a smooth yet capturing flow and just fresh tracks. Personally, this is one of the most replayable albums I ever bought. For me, it has an x-factor that makes you just want to stick it back in after the cd is finished. It is an extension to the fact that 1993/1994 was the best year for hiphop, this album can not be ignored. After reading this review, please check this album out if you claim to be a fan of Early-Mid 90's hiphop at its peak, because this is a slept on classic. PEACE

4.0 out of 5 stars What could have been... March 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Extra Prolific was the black sheep of the Heiroglyphics family...
Duane 'Snupe' Lee made his first appearance on "No More Worries" from Del's NO NEED FOR ALARM album. Granted, he didn't exactly blow people's minds with his performance ("I WRITE MY RHYMES NAKED"?!?!), he did hold his own. A few years later, he would hook with DJ Mike P (or was it Mike G?), and formed the duo, EXTRA PROLIFIC.
This album had a much different mood from other Hiero projects. It had more smoothed out beats, especially compared to the more punchy sounds from Del and the Souls Of Mischief. This is especially seen in 'Brown Sugar' (both the original and Domino's remix, which is my personal favorite of the album), 'Sweet Potato Pie', and 'In Front Of The Kids'. Most of this album is geared more toward the ladies, which is also a contrast to other Heiro projects. While Del hardly focused on the ladies, S.O.M. and Casual did do a few records for the ladies. However, their recordings didn't focus on it as much as Snupe did.
One requirement for being a part of Heiro was to have the ability to ride over beats with the ease of a seasoned acrobat. While Snupe does meet those standards, he doesn't do it as seamlessly as other members. A lot of people do have problems with his smarmy voice, especially when he focuses on girls.
Some of his best efforts vear away from mackin'. He tries to go the positive route with 'Never Changing', 'First Sermon', and 'Back to School'. Though he doesn't exactly covince anyone (Telling people to 'forget about pimps and limps' after talking about macking through 90% of the album), his flow over the smooth tracks makes up for it.
The Heiro crew does jump in during points of the album. In 'Now What', Opio of the S.O.M.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Complete Hieroglyphic Album Period. August 16, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Let's venture back to 1993 -1994, the last years of hip hop's golden age. It was during the early 90's when an enormous amount of hip-hop classics were shoved into ears of all hip hop heads. Extra Prolific's debut album Like It Should Be, is arguablly the most complete as well as consistent Hiero release to date. 93 Til is a classic album from the hiero camp as well. But Extra Prolific's album was meshed together more masterfully. The overall mood and tone that Like It Should Be sets is present and fluid throughout the entire album. This album is so ginuine in unique due to the fact that Snupe merges his Oaktown/H-Town laidback, smoothe, boastfulness, and pimp swagger with a beautiful sounscape supplied by Domino. This album was definitely ahead of it's time, and as a result it was widely slept on and rarely mentioned today. This is a pure gem. The source even rated this album as a 4 mic rating back in 94. No matter where you live, this album is something to ride to and just chill to. With tracks like "Brown Sugar", "In front of the kids", and "First Sermon" you can't go wrong. If you are a true hip hop head/purist, cop this album. you will thank yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars don't support exploit-ulators September 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I just found another CD copy of this in the used bin for under ten bucks, so they're out there (especially if you keep it true to cassettes, which is how I had mine originally; I'm sure you can find it in this format if you know how to look). Don't line the pockets of these clowns who try to claim that nationally distributed rap CDs are valuable (they ain't). Dig deeper. Still, a real nice find: short, sweet, bangin'. Ironically, hailing from Houston puts Snupe's style more in line with the traditional Oakland steez that his clik was moving away from, but don't worry, he still gives plenty taste o the Hiero. The Domino beats are a notch above, but A-plus drops some gems too, such as the underground DJ-friendly "Now What" feat. Opio. After Snupe reminds the suckas that "there's extra robes in your choir stand" Opio drops one of the sickest Hiero verses of all-time. I would put this one on the level of Fear Itself and 93 til Infinity, and even a cut above No Need for Alarm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid from start to finish July 31, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Though they are no longer on friendly terms with the Hiero crew, Extra Prolific definately dropped a great album while affiliated with them. While I think Del or Souls Of Mischief come more consitant on the lyrical tip than Snupe, I feel that "Like It Should Be" is more solid in its production than any other Hiero album. The beats range from the slow, bass heavy feel of the the first quarter of the album ("Brown Sugar", and "Sweet Potato Pie"), to the upbeat, jazzy remainder of songs ("First Sermon", "Now What?"). Out of the album's 16 tracks, only two of them dissapoint, making for a pretty solid album from start to finish. The track listing only show 14 tracks, but there are 2 bonus tracks included: "Brown Sugar Remix" and "Give It Up". The only flaw of this album is that Snupe's subjects rarely expand beyond pimpin' and bustin' out wack emcees. Still, he flexes ill verses that never bore, so it's not really a complaint. My only question is what exactly does Mike G do the whole album besides produce the intro? This is basically Snupe's solo album.
