I think dude would have kind of followed in like a JAY-Z's footsteps.......he was going to sign with Roc-a-fella records

BIG L would have been one of the all time greats

I doubt big L would have sold out, he seemed like an MC that would have stayed true to his roots but u can never tell money is a powerful thing

Thats hard to imagine....if he signed with Roc...the whole industry could have been different....perhaps people would think differently about Roc.

But I know what you mean...since Fat Joe sold out by most peoples standards.

It is hard to imagine L selling out after making his first album so vugar like that.

I couldn't picture him selling out, but i could kinda picture him doing some at least 1 commercial song per album, and the rest being that raw lyricism he would always spit.

peace.

Big L wasn't the type to sell out (but who knows?).., and 2...even if he did have a lil mainstream content to em...., he had originality with it..nahmean. BIG L pointblank had mad skill!!!!!!!! He could flip on that content..., but MAKE it sick as hell (somethin these cats on the radio can't do because they don't have the skill nor creativity). Big L was a beast.


And man...Mobb Deep, that's sad yo..real sad. Those catz even had alot of street respect too, unlike 50 and alot of other headz. The younger mobb deep probably would've started beef with 50..lol. Matter of fact, this another group of headz who were heavy on some Thug sh!t..right, BUT...the way they flipped the content was SICK.

peace
