The late great Big L once lyrically rattled off, “I’m so ahead of my time my parents haven’t met yet.”
Go ahead and marinate on that level of dopeness while we celebrate his life.
Lamont Coleman of Harlem, NY was tragically gunned down 20 years ago on February 15, 1999.
But instead of mourning his death, the Hip Hop community relishes in the ability to uplift our greatest talent and allow for the music to be enjoyed for generations to come.
Which is why HipHopDX and RBC Records want to bless TWO lucky fans with a limited edition test pressing vinyls of Big L’s posthumously piecemealed — yet weirdly potent — album, The Big Picture.
Just answer these two questions in the comment section below (and comment using your real name!).
1. Which multi-member Hip Hop supergroup was Big L a part of?
2. Which producer on The Big Picture also produced for Big L’s former understudy, JAY-Z?
Winners will be selected randomly. Good luck and R.I.P to Big L!
