I just received this information in regards to Big L's Tribute CD('Picture This'), Along with Puba's new CD, Called, 'Retroactive', Featuring, Lord Jaamar, Sadat, Q-Tip, Kid Capri, Large Pro, I truely feel, That, Big L would have changed the Hiphop circuit, In the same fashion as Rakim did in 1986(Along with Kane,KRS,G.Rap in 1986), Big-L had it
All(Creativity,Delivery,Finesse,Wit,Vision,Etc, Big L had all the ingredients, To present himself as an MC(Not a rapper, Mad big difference), Big-L was a park MC, Meaning, Put a
Mic in Big L Fronts, And, Big L, Would rock your party/LOL One of my favorite plates by Big-L, Is, 'Consequences of a Dice Game', During the mid 90's.
Grant Parks will be releasing a tribute to fallen great Big L. May 30th 2009
on L's birthday. GP is paying homage to one of hip hop's greats,
that has been truly missed in today's rap game.
Grant has brought Big L. into 2009 where he is very much needed!
"Picture This"- a Tribute to Big L. (All tracks produced by Grant Parks).
Lamont Coleman (May 30, 1974–February 15, 1999), also known by his stage name Big L,
was raised in Harlem's uptown sector "Danger Zone"--139th Street and Lennox Avenue,
Big L was faced with the temptation's of the streets. Instead of living the street life
he chose rap as a way out. His first ever crack on wax came in 1992's "Yes You May (Remix)."
Since then Big L has blessed the mic countless times with lyrics like no other......
Although Big L is no longer with us, His essence is still felt in the rap game, from his smart lyrics,
to his deadly metaphors and his freestyling ability, Big L has opened the doors for a wave of
rappers such as Mase, Jay-Z, Cam'ron and McGruff.
Through his music Big L lives on, and should never be forgotten.
R.I.P. Lamont Coleman aka. Big L - Harlem's Finest
Big L-Put It On -Feat. Kid Capri,
Produced by Grant Parks (Tribute Remix)
