FUCK man I LOVE Big L. He had so many classic cuts but before I get to all that I'll give you the general run down. He started rhyming in the early 90s in a group called 'The Hard Way'. L quickly realized the others in his group didn't have the drive to really do it so he said 'fuck this' and quickly bounced to solo stardom by battling people around his local harlem and 'roasting MCs'. Lyrically he was dark! Influencing Gravediggaz and many others from a soon to be 'horrorcore' scene. Big L was one of the first to mix rhymes of urban new york along with heavy depictions of blood and gore. Don't worry though he rapped about doing drugs, fucking bitches, and getting paid too. This is probably the song Big L was best known for, but seriously he never really fell off. He was set to sign with Roc-A-Fella records in feb. of 1999 but was shot 10 times in the head and chest outside his harlem home a week prior to meeting with Jay-Z. Fuck haters. RIP BIG L.
