  • AZ

    R.I.P. Big L


  • bws30

    Can’t wait for this to drop!

  • Ricochet

    the beat is from full clip by gang starr in case you’re wondering…
    big l is on the same level as notorious and pac were, idk why a lot of people overlook him…

  • people overlook him cuz he has one song. i’m not saying he’s not dope. dude’s a fucking incredible lyricist. but, biggie and pac were superstars and should not be compared to him.

  • skeme

    ill def be checking that out

  • B-rown

    Most underrated and underappreciated MC of all time. I never even heard of L until way after he passed. First time I heard him, I knew he was ill. The more I heard, the more I wanted to hear. Now he’s easily one of my top 5 favourites of all time. I used to host a college radio show and I changed the name to Diggin’ In The Crates after a while and always made a point to play at least one Big L song.

    To me, L was the best when it came to the rewind factor. No MC has ever made me say “wow, I can’t believe he just said that shit” more than him. He has some of the craziest and best lines in hip hop history. Definitely doesn’t get his proper respects, but he never really got much of a push either.

    Ah check it out, yo

    Ayo everywhere I go, brothers know my fucking name

    I’m flooring niggas and I only weight a buck and change

    I gave a lot of black eyes in my extorting days

    Fucking with me, a lotta niggas was sporting shades

    I grab the microphone and scar jerks

    Niggas running up (Put me on!) What the fuck, is this star search?

    I’m relieving rappers like Sudafed

    And if the microphone was smoke then Big L would be a buddha head

    Ayo my crew’s real smooth like Lopez

    I was rocking mics since niggas was wearing Pro Keds

    I only roll with originators

    Chicks stick to my dick like magnets on refridgerators

    I’m a crazy mean lyracist

    Many are in fear of this, yeah, so they stand clear of this

    And those that refuse the order, Big L bruise and slaughter

    Niggas hear me and take notes like a news reporter

    I’ll bend a rapper like a fender, I’m slender, but far from tender

    Killing niggas like a Klan member

    You can’t touch this, your rhyme’s to darn weak, front

    And I’m a introduce your brains to the concrete

    I keep hoes satisfied, I’m pushing the fattest ride

    To take me out, troop, even the baddest try

    But they fell cause my techniques are liver

    I’m so deaf I need a hearing aid with an equalizer

    You tried to hit a home run but you struck out

    My rhymes were released, I’d like to say peace the fuck out

  • Acid_Sav

    Big L rest in peace!

    Ebonics is my shit

  • myth_seeker

    im glad someone’s finally doing this

  • Brandon

    This needs to come out yesterday.

  • That does..Can’t wait

  • Had to watch it twice!

  • Huh?

    people overlook him cuz he has one song. i’m not saying he’s not dope. dude’s a fucking incredible lyricist. but, biggie and pac were superstars and should not be compared to him.

    What do you mean by “he has one song”?

    You know he has 2 albums out, right?

    Even if Big & Pac were are superstars, why can’t they be compared to him? They’re rappers, people like to talk about who was the better lyricist.

    That’s like saying don’t compare Celph Titled to Lil’ Wayne because he’s not a superstar.

    @Huh, you’re wrong if you think his 2 albums are the only material he has that’s been released though, there’s some DITC tracks he did back when Fat Joe was good, of course there’s other freestyles, other joints he did with A.G, Royal Flush, Shyheim etc. Just gotta know where the look.

  • David Jefferis Australia

    correction “a girl asked me for a ring ,and i put one around her whole eye”.
    Big l

  • definitely a big inspiration to me…and countless others…
