Live at the Middle East is a 2002 live album by underground hip-hop artist Mr. Lif. The album, released on Ozone Records, was recorded live at The Middle East Restaurant and Nightclub in Cambridge, MA. The performance includes appearances by fellow Perceptionists lyricist Akrobatik and DJ Akbar.

In addition to being a live album recorded before Mr. Lif's full-length debut I Phantom, the album is notable for the early appearance of the artist with Akrobatik as the Perceptionists, an almost 13-minute freestyle with Akrobatik, and multiple halts in the performance whenever the artist yells "Stop the record!"
