Black Mafia Life is the second album by gangsta rap group Above the Law, released in 1993. Released three years after their popular debut Livin' Like Hustlers, Black Mafia Life proved a surprising success. Especially without the help of Dr. Dre (who produced two tracks and served as overall assistant producer on their debut album), the album was not widely expected to live up to expectations. Rolling Stone gave the album 4.5 stars.
