Big L - Ebonics
Big L died long before his time. He was easily one of the rawest hip-hop artists of the 90’s; however, unlike Tupac and Biggie, he was sadly shot and killed just as he was starting to become famous. Big L had a plethora of unique properties that make him stand out on his own even after all these years, such as his vicious flow, potent on point punchlines, lyrical complexity, and his well structured story telling. The energy and intensity he brought to the mic was absolutely ridiculous. He was also was one of the original founders of the hip-hop sub-genre horrorcore hip-hop….he had a very violent past. And as a random side note, I have a Big L vinyl hanging directly above my bed, and this is the picture featured on the vinyl cover.
