10 Things You Didn't Know About Big L's "Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous" Mar 28, 2015 at 04:36 PM
Big L is legendary for a few reasons. His punchlines, his freestyles, and his legendary album Lifestylez ov da Poor & Dangerous are the basis to his influence.
Today would have been Big L’s 40th birthday, and to pay homage, Complex TV has decided to unleash some unreleased footage from their vaults.
Big L was a New York ‘representer’ straight from the danger zone of Harlem, and in the words of my father, who hung out with the young Lamont Coleman in the 90’s: “Big L was a charismatic and cool cat back then.
Last Saturday marked the 15th anniversary of hip hop legend Big L’s untimely death. The Harlem rapper helped propel the strong New York hip hop movement in the nineties, and collaborated with dozens of artists including a young Jay-Z, Tupac, Fat Joe.
This past Saturday, on February 15th, marked fifteen years since Big L's death, when he was shot nine times in his native Harlem. The unfortunate death of L saw a talented, lyrical MC of legendary status leave us before his prime.
