When it comes to aggressive punchlines and metaphors, few were as vicious as Big L. Notorious for his freestyle prowess and battle ready delivery, Harlem’s favorite son was one of the most feared lyricists of his time, even besting arguably the greatest rapper of all time in grand fashion once upon a time.
Member of the Diggin’ In The Crates Crew, founder of the supergroup Children Of The Corn (which included a pre-fame Ma$e and Cam’ron), and one of the pioneers of horrorcore rap, L was a rising star that was snuffed out 15 years ago today on February 15, 1999, before he got the chance to truly shine. In memory of his legacy, we bring to you the 10 Big L Songs Everyone Should Know. Get your rewind buttons ready.
