Big L

A member of Fat Joe's DITC crew, rapper Big L was born Lamont Coleman on May 30, 1974. He made his solo debut with 1995's Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous, scoring a series of underground hits including "No Endz, No Skinz," "Street Struck" and "Da Graveyard"; Big L's best-known effort, the single "Ebonics," followed on his own Flamboyant label in the summer of 1998. Around the same time, he joined the Bronx-based hip-hop supergroup DITC (Diggin' in the Crates), appearing on their single, "Dignified Soldiers." On the evening of February 15, 1999, Big L was shot and killed just blocks away from his Harlem home; he was just 24 at the time of his death. Both the DITC album Worldwide and the second Big L solo effort, The Big Picture, followed in 2000. ~ Jason Ankeny

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't stop this is freaky! But if you read this and ignore it you will get bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes. When you are done press the space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on the screen. This is so creepy because it actually works

95 Freestyle pt 1 - Big L (rip) and Jay Z .. Best I've ever heard lyrically from Jay .. And I don't even consider him a dope MC on some real s**t he's not impressive but this s**t is ill .. Don't know why he expanded backward with skills.. Guess that wasn't his love over money.

It is way too hard to compare Big L, Pac and BIG. All three were in different categories in rap. It would not do any of them justice

Unless you were apart of the crews, or any clicks stepping. None of you know what and why L was killed. Their are more things not seen or heard. Big L is not better then Biggie. Jay Z is a different type of hop hopper.. he actually reminds me of umm. Ja-rule.. pretender of the streets. Jay Z, was always a coward n a p**sy. NAS gave him a shot, if you know the history clowing in QB, Bk heights Crown Heights. Or any area from Park slope up to Brownsville. You can hear some of these stories in Bigg
