Fifteen years ago to the day, we lost one of Rap’s greatest, Lamont “Big L” Coleman. Harlem’s illest dropped his debut, Lifestylez ov da Poor & Dangerous on March 28th, 1995, nearly nineteen years ago, and that album has stood the test of time and is considered a classic.
While we await the ever elusive and now highly-mythical Big L documentary, Street Struck which was announced almost six years ago (seriously, what’s the deal with that?), enjoy these two Buckwild remixes of L’s “M.V.P.” plus a throwback video of L’s first appearance on Yo! MTV Raps with mentor Lord Finesse.
Big L, Rest In Peace!
