XXL’s Freshman Class Of 1993: What We Would’ve Said


Big L – “Devil’s Son,” Showbiz & A.G.’s “Respect”

Although it wouldn’t be until 1995 that he released his acclaimed debut Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous, Big L made his first mark in hip-hop with his appearance on the remix to Lord Finesse’s “Yes You May.” That same year, L would go on to join Finesse’s Diggin’ in the Crates collective, as well as appear on Showbiz and AG’s “Respect” off their 1992 debut Runaway Slave. However, it was the success of his solo single “Devil’s Son” that confirmed the Harlem native would be a major force in hip-hop.
