Playing tracks by
Big L, Yungun, Big L (Feat. Kid Capri), Big L feat Kid Capri /J Dilla, D.I.T.C and more.
Note: this is not a ‘best of’, it is a mix of some of my favourite Big L material comprised of rarities, freestyles, remixes and collaborations done throughout his life and career.
It was on my mind this February to do that Big L mix I'd always wanted to, to say thanks for all those verses he'd blessed us with. I'd been a fan since the age of 17 and he was slain only a couple of years after that. I feel the world was of robbed of one of the greatest rappers that ever lived, and this has only been partially recognised by folks since. I had almost forgotten about the mix when I heard a song by London rapper Yungun on Gilles Peterson Worldwide show which was a tribute to him. This seemed almost too crazy to be a coincidence so I've set out to pay homage to someone who never got to see this side of the millennium.
