You're trying to promote your website, that's what I think. Why? Because if you're genuinely trying to spread the word about L, this isn't the best place to do so considering everyone here is already here for L--but as long as you're really trying to keep L's music alive that's aight.

I made a thread on mlgpro.com forums to try and get other young people to get to know and listen to Big L.

I thought people here might be interested in it as well:

QUOTE
Since the anniversary of his birth is only a couple weeks away, I'd like to take some time out to re-introduce one of the greatest hip hop artists to ever bless the mic, the one and only, Big L.

A Brief History:

On May 30th, 1974 "Little L" or "'mont 'mont" Lamont Coleman was born to Gilda "Pinky" Terry and Charles E. Davis. Sometime in 1983, at age nine 'mont 'mont began rhymin'. Repeating songs he heard by Run DMC or Cold Crush and eventually moving onto freestyling at age twelve. In late 1992, L signed to Sony's Columbia Records and sometime in 1993 Big L dropped his first promotional single, Devil's Son produced by Showbiz. On March 28th, 1995, Big L's debut, Lifestylez ov da Poor & Dangerous was released on Columbia Records. Sometime in 1998, Big Lee (L's older brother) was locked up and Big L formed Flamboyant Entertainment with his other older brother Leroy and Rich King. And on February 15th, 1999 – roughly eight thirty at night on the Monday after Valentine's Day, Big L was shot to death at only twenty four years old, with nine bullets to the head and chest, a victim of a drive-by just blocks from his Harlem home. Police identified him using the Flamboyant Entertainment party flyer he was handing out and putting up just after Valentine's Day.

- Thanks to Big Sleep for the info!

Below is a delux version of Big L's debut album Lifestylez Ov Da Poor and Dangerous, this version includes tracks that were supposed to be on the original disc but were cut off by Colombia right before the release.

(Click the pic to download)



1. Put It On Feat. Kid Capri
2. MVP
3. No Endz, No Skinz
4. 8 Iz Enuff Feat. Terra, Herb McGruff, Buddah Bless, Big Twan, Cam'ron, Trooper J & Mike Boogie
5. All Black
6. Danger Zone Feat. McGruff
7. Street Struck
8. Da Graveyard Feat. Lord Finesse, Jay-Z, Microphone Nut, Party-Arty & Y.U.
9. Lifestylez Ov Da Poor and Dangerous
10. I Don't Understand It
11. Fed Up With The Bull****
12. Let 'Em Have It "L"
13. Devil's Son
14. Principal of the New School
15. You Know What I'm About Feat. Lord Finesse
16.How Will I Make It
17. School Dayz
18. Timez Is Hard On The Boulevard
19. Clinic (Shoulda Worn A Rubba)
20. Unexpected Flava
21. M.V.P. (Summer Smooth Mix) Feat. Missy Jones

And this bonus disc is a small compilation of recorded freestyles from L before his first album dropped. ('91 - '95)

(Click the pic to download)


1. Rock N. Wills Audition
2. '92 Stretch & Bobbito Freestyle
3. '93 Freestyle Over Redman's Tonight's Da Night
4. Stretch & Bobbito '93 Freestyle Over Sadat's You Can’t Front
5. Sandman 118 Freestyle
6. '95 Stretch & Bobbito Seven Minute Back to Back Feat. Jay - Z

Listen to both of these CDs, really listen and then you'll realize why modern rap doesn't compare to the raw lyrical talent that was displayed by rappers like Big L who spit true hip hop in the 1990s.

Here's some corrections for you:

It's misleading to say that all those tracks were "supposed to be" on L's debut, most of the ones you put in were never intended for his album. And a lot of them weren't removed "by Columbia" but chosen to not be included due to sounding outdated for a '95 release.

And You Can't Front...Shit (or it) is Real is really not "Sadat's" track. He's just featured on it (as is Lord Finesse). It's a Diamond D non-album cut, a b-side to the '93 What U Heard single (video featuring Big L), produced by Diamond D and Buckwild.

And most importantly, Big Lee and Leroy are the same guy. Leroy Larry Phinazee, a.k.a. Big Lee.

Edit: Also, none of those recordings are from '91. The Rock N. Wills / Hardpack, Live on 125th audition tape is from '92. And original title of Clinic is: I Shoulda Used a Rubba.

Wow I didn't even realize the mistakes I made, thanks for letting me know.

This guy posted links to L, A.G. and Finesse’s three separate videos from February 6th, 1999, Live at The Tramps. Copies of the Big L and Andre the Giant freestyle videos are/were up on my site or in the Non-YouTube Quality Videos thread. I messaged the uploader about getting a download file to the Finesse one, the only one I/we don’t have up. No response (still / yet).

See what people are saying (or not saying) about us! According to a very quick (and not comprehensive) search through Google earlier this morning, our new mega-exclusive (the first look at the trailer for Street Struck: The Big L Story documentary which I sent to the DJ Premier Blog, NahRight and The T.R.O.Y. Blog) has travelled quite a bit since yesterday (more to be added later I'm sure):

Good. The more people see it the better. I'm glad that some of them gave you/biglonline credit for having the trailer exclusively. I've read a bunch of comments and it's seems like everybody is enjoying the great news and hopefully most people will buy the documentary when it's out. L's legacy is going in a good direction and i'm happy about it.

Yeah, a thou in not even a day isn't a bad start. Especially because we're not some huge site. It'll keep gettin' more views and more promotion for the next little while I'm sure.

In fact, it just got mirrored / posted to 2DopeBoyz. That's three outta the top five and like five outta the top ten hip hop blogs (according to Vibe magazine's recent top fifty list, if you believe that / them). Either way, Nah Right, 2DopeBoyz, MissInfo and RapRadar are huge. Like, Jay-Z himself and people of that caliber are lookin' at these sites.

So it doesn't matter that're we're getting credited less than half the time, that's the internet I guess. It's my / our logos showin' up in these flyers, it's our official BigLOnline YouTube channel and people can find out the source information if they really are interested. Sure NahRight doesn't shout us out, but they link to the T.R.O.Y. blog (who I also told and am closer with and who shout us and me / my site out multiple times) and so the truth is only a click or two away. People like the guy who runs the DJ Premier blog has posted here and gave us props where it was due, so the word is definitely gettin' out.

Here’s couple more notable posts from around the net, the most known site being You Heard That New, ThisIs50 and AllHipHop (the last of which Soobax mentioned in the thread for the trailer itself). There are of course a bunch of others, including the site of DJ Sav*One, who I’ve talked to on occasion and who has fulfilled requests for us by ripping vinyl in the past.

This doesn't include posts that simply link to other posts, posts with just a video (in some cases that slipped in but usually the site is well known, there is text somewhere in the original post but not much and/or there are comments responding to the original post) and posts written in foreign languages such as Spanish, French, German and Russian.
