Big L
Can’t Forget About You

big-l-feat.jpgAs with so many other great MC’s that were taken before their time, Big L displayed a measure of talent that made fans wonder if his potential had any limit. Where would he be today? What music would he have made? Who would he be working with if he was alive in 2007? We’ll never know and can only imagine. No longer with us in the physical form, Big L’s words will live forever. As a tribute to the underground pride of Harlem, on the 8th anniversary of his death, XXLMag.com has compiled some of the greatest gems L ever dropped on us during his career.

“MVP” – From his debut album Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous, “MVP” was one of the first tracks that the general public heard from Big L. Using the same DeBarge sample used for Biggie’s “One More Chance (Remix),” it still stands as one of the finest displays of L’s charisma and knack for witty punch lines.

“Danger Zone” – L pulled no punches on this gloomy ode to his Harlem block. Tragically, he would ultimately lose his life in the same neighborhood he repped throughout his career.

“Ebonics” – Far from just a punch line rapper, Big L could pen a concept song with the best of them. This classic track breaking down some of the popular slang in use at the time is one of the best examples. It’s just the way that he talked, yo.

“Deadly Combination” ft. 2Pac – 2Pac was in a New York state of mind when he penned this verse, name checking Rudy Giuliani and DJ Ron G. The result fits perfectly with L’s verse for a classic track from two fallen soldiers.

“Flamboyant” – A perfect display of Harlem swagger. If you’ve never been there, listen to this song for an audio tour.

“The Enemy” ft. Fat Joe – Fellow D.I.T.C. member Fat Joe assists L on this track about the perils of being a young minority from the hood that finds themselves in the sights of the police.

“Stretch and Bobbito Freestyle” ft. Jay-Z – Back in ’95 before anybody had a reasonable doubt, L appeared on the legendary Stretch and Bobbito radio show with a little known MC named Jay-Z for a freestyle session. There has been much debate over who took title that day.

“Stretch and Bobbito Freestyle Pt. 2” ft. Jay-Z

“Yes You May (Remix)” – On occasion, Big L has been accused of co-opting the style of his D.I.T.C brethren Lord Finesse. While the similarities are apparent on this track, he more than held his own with the Bronx veteran.

    I forgive you young stunna. You must be under 21 to think Cam is on the same level as Big L. They were both cool. But Big L was waay sicker than Cam. Big L inspired the whole game in regards to punchlines.

    Big L and Jay were sick on part 1. Jay ran out of gas on the second part. still sicker than anything out these days.

    big ups to cousin A

    and for the record big l is harlems finest, even tho i got mad love for cam, no homo

    amd yes coleman was born in 74′

  • R.I.P BIG L

    ANE 1 ELSE THINKS JAY-Z KINDA BIT FROM BIG L A LITTLE BIT WITH HIS STYLE AND TOOK A LITTLE FROM BIG AS WELL? I REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME I HEARD O JAY-Z I THOUGHT HE WAS A BIG L CLONE

  • VICK

    Best RAPPER EVER HANDS DOWN!!!!! he was just underated…..better than pac and biggie PUT THEM L’s IN THE AIR

  • http://NONE KILLA BLACK

    Big L is the hotest spitter from Harlem, Cam cant fuck wit him, Mase either, plus they was all in the same group (CHILDEN OF THE CORN)KNOW YA HISTORY before you open your mouth you dumb young niggers, but yo that free style between BigL AND jAY was very close,you can tell they was getting at eachother but i think Jay just pulled it out (no homo)cause L was right there, you could say it was a tie, but damm if L,Pac,Big was still alive HipHop would not be going threw this state where in now, but have no fear,REAL HIPHOP IS HERE (myspace.com/blu-black)

  • DruMack

    It’s good to see a hip hop publication recognize a lyricist such as Big L. That cat was way ahead of his time and was also completely underrated. True hip hop heads know how sick his wordplay was on the mic. Alot of hip hop media outlets failed to appreciate this man’s talent while he was still living. Yea, I’m a big fan of J-HOVA, but the only time I really heard him outdone in the booth was that freestyle on Stretch and Bobbito’s show with the one and only LaMont Coleman. No damn doubt, L-Corleone will remain missed.

    R.I.P Big L

  • Mad TRaffik

    Big L is Cam’s father on the mic.

  • H-LO

    Hmm, the freestyle with Jay sounds slowed down, doesn’t it. Or is the Version I have too fast? I tend to the first, listen to the drums. Since I’ve listened to the faster version a hundred times I can’t really enjoy it that way.

  • g-villian

    that niggia big l was dope as they come if he wasn’t in my top five he is know so far ahead of his time his parents aren’t even born yet thats dope.

  • Pbolanis7667

    Props to XXL for not forgetting about one of the greatest lyricists ever. A lot of websites didn’t pay L their respects on the 15th, and they need to RECOGNIZE.

    “Never had rules to follow/None of my jewels are hollow/Try to tax mines and you’ll be on the news tomorrow/Cuz I never was the type to start beefs/But I spark creeps /on dark streets/and stop they heartbeats/To hell with silly games I play survival sports/Sometimes I be in the crib/Stressed the fuck out with suicidal thoughts”

    RIP BIG L

  • H-LO

    What puzzles me: His album came out in 95 and he was gunned down in 99 just before he could sign to rocafella. But what happened in the time between, I mean, jay put out like 4 albums during that period. Was he working on a new album?

    Big L was that dude man. He could straight spit fire with that harlem swag. I remember many a days cuttin school with the nukkas and rollin up L’s to Big L. We’d be like, lets bang out that Big L while we roll this Big L and we’d constantly be on the rewind, like “did you hear that shit??”

    Papoose is the closest thing we have to Big L now as far as style goes, Big L layed the foundation for the modern punchline rappers, and anybody who’s clownin Camron needs to remember that everybody dumbs down their lyrics when they go commercial, and Big L would’ve done the same thing on Rocafella if he was still alive..that’s just how the game goes..

    Wow, I will seriously admit that I never heard Big L until I came to this page. I heard of him but I never heard him actually spit. And just from listening to these random songs I realize that he is One of the Greatest to ever touch a mic.

    Anyway in that freestyle wit Jay, L killed it. He was ridiculous but Jay almost made me cry when he said, “Even when if they won’t let me in heaven/I’ll raise hell/til its heaven”…

    L said, I’m so far ahead of my time/ my parents haven’t met yet…

    Its only one thing to say. WWWWWWoooooowwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    First of all, R.I.P. Big L. Second that freestyle with Jay Big L never stumbled slowed down or nothin he kept goin wit his flow. Especially “so we can never b a couple hun,
    fuck love – all i got for hoes is hard dick and bubble gum.” Oh yea the bubble gum line jay bit off that. Now about Jay on the second part he stumbled ran out of breath and was talkin jibberish.

    ok just because big l got cam’ron started does not necescarly mean he is better by default just like jay-z over time got better than his mentor(big) so did cam.

    An untouchable lyricist. With the exception of Tupac, all the guest appearances on these tracks sound mundane when paired with L’s impecable flow.

    BIG L IS THE NICEST THNG TO EVER COME OUT OF HARLEM. POINT BLANK. KILLA CAM IS SICK, BUT THIS NEW CAM’ROM DIPSET SHIT IS HELLA WACK. CHILDREN OF THE CORN AND D.I.T.C FOREVER!

    flamboyant all day! everbody knows BIG L was better than CAMRON back in 95, so why wouldnt he be better in 07. BIG Ls’ vocab was extra -plus- he was slicker…

  • Proda’J

    Man Big L 4 Life…Big L was the most lyrical punchline genius eva to had live. Many people don’t Know…even though he’s unrecognized most people get their style from him. “mad hoes ask beaves i get nothing but head(butthead)” Rest in peace man!!!!!!

    In the mid 90′s I was an up and coming MC myself so I kinda missed the Big L boat…I was so busy focusing on my own style…it wasn’t until after his untimely death that I got into his music…my boys from the BX had been telling me about him for awhile…and after taking a listen I heard 1st hand what all the buzz was about…it’s unfortunate he was cut short before he reached his full potential…his words will live forever thru his music and hopefully as we pay homage…we in the Hip-Hop community realize that violence is ruining our communities and silencing our voices…and we need to take a more active role in setting examples for those coming up under us.

    Peace

    Stupid asses, fighting over whos best at this art of flow. I rep West Coast Rap till I die (Pac). But when real people who notice real talet. They can see that L had shit locked from day one. The man didnt care about song writing, he was a battle rap/punch line muthafucka. And true rap artist notice know that. So to all of yall that dont see it that way. Eat a dick and go back to listening to your 50 Cent bitches.

  • the big legend

    “Stretch and Bobbito Freestyle” ft. Jay-Z – Back in ‘95 before anybody had a reasonable doubt, L appeared on the legendary Stretch and Bobbito radio show with a little known MC named Jay-Z for a freestyle session. There has been much debate over who took title that day.

    lmao are you kidding Big L ripped up jay-z. jay-z is a clown who bites big L lines, check out youtube
