Aside from the obvious qualities of him being a punchline king and lyrical genius, he has some of the best rhymes about the females, real comedic and creative

"I'm quick to bust a mean nut in a teen slut, Big L is clean cut wit more jewels than King Tut"

"I wouldn't give a chick 10 cents to put cheese on a Whopper"

"They wanna know why I'm so fly, a girl asked for a ring and I put one around her whole eye"

I don't know what I like more, that or when he rhymes about graphic violence. His styles and personality as an MC are untouchable and unmistakable.

hip hop got robbed of one of its best talents... still saddens a nigga till this day!!!!!!!!! BIG L made it look effortless, his radio freestyles destroyed me!!!!!!!! and big l got unreleased joints sitting around that need to be released for the sake of hip hop, it shouldve dropped years ago but labels get greedy!!!!!!

i also thank L for showing that nigga cam'ron how to really get it in, he keeps Ls name alive!!!! respect to killa!!!!!!!!!!

I hate it when people call musicians geniuses because mostly they're fucking idiots with marketability, but to rhyme words together like Big L did, he was a genius.

Flamboyant sums L up, he dominates that track like anything else he was ever on.

Canibus said no one could shine on a track featuring him (which is kind of true), but a Big L verse renders any other verse on that track not only inferior, but useless.

Any track L is featured on i find myself annoyed listening to whoever raps before him.

He puts a lot of rappers people here consider great to absolute shame.

Ay angry!, I heard Lord Finesse speaking on DJ Premier's Headcquarterz show about some difficulties in releasing unreleased Big L music, here's the audio: http://djpremierblog.blogspot.com/2009/11/lord-finesse-explains-big-l-project.html. You're right about that need for his music archives to bless the hip hop world

As a Harlem resident of 20+ years, I can say L represents a certain attitude and witty-ness that reminds me of the street characters from that neighborhood, he'll definitely be missed.



Here's a look at my neighborhood where L is also from. The damn place is changing due to the economy, I think it'll remain the same overall though

Easily one of the best if not the best to ever touch the mic. I hate even thinking about the fact he got sent back. He was so fucking dope its insane. His lyrics were so fucking dope. When I listen to his albums I get pissed off thinking about how much dope shit we did not even get a chance to hear. I think the same dude that killed him killed his brother Big Lee also.

This dude had lyrics that were hardcore and funny all in together! He had great punchlines as well! And he was kind of on that horrorcore tip as well! Mad respect!

Me being a virgin, that's idiotic
Cause if big l got the aids every cutie in the city got it

I sex chicks, I'll even fuck a dead bitch
Always sprayin tecs, because I be stayin vexed
Some nigga named dex, was in the projects layin threats
I jumped out the lincoln, left him stinkin
Put his brains in the street
Now you can see what he was just thinkin

Damn! An ill skilled MC , that's all I can say....

thanks for the link brandon.. peace to finesse, hes trying to get it done for his homie, these labels should be jumping to get it out!!!!!!!!!

and i feel you on harlem changing, hoods around the US are changing, long time residents are getting squeezed out to appease the wealthy!!!!!!!

whenever i listen to a cam record, i cant help but think of L...

i think L woulda loved crime pays, cams back to spitting that raw!!!!!!!!

big l was one of the illest to ever touch a mic

that freestyle on Big Picture says a lot about his talent. and that Fall Back track with G Rap, is just hip hop greatness, those two styles match together like peanut butter and jam

Big L lyrics are better then the lyrics of rappers today cause they use slang. big L don't and he puts the lyrics together pretty well.

It just shows how much the talent the guy must have had to be considered one of the greatest of all time after releasing only one album in his lifetime. What makes him one of the greatest though is just how creative, charismatic, hillarious, witty, intelligent, and entertaining he was when he was making music.

R.I.P. to the man

i
this is true. L was way too nasty (which is why hes top 5 imo). record labels, radio stations, could never give him the play they give jigga or em.

ask eminem who his fav rapper is i guarantee big L is in his top 2. gotta be, em bit his whole style off L.

BIG L was fucking great. I don't see why doing a thread about somebody everybody loves. He gets enuff shine, there are so many others that deserve some shine too...

BIG L shit from any year still puts to shame rappers like Inspectah Deck, when it comes to punchlines, Vinnie Paz when it comes to...anything, actually ... like Sean Bateman said, some rappers get too much praise on this site
