Big L feat. 2Pac & Notorious B.I.G. – “Deadly Combination”
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.
