Big L Documentary Planned for 2010 Release

On August 30, friends and family of deceased Harlem rapper Big L gathered around a mural painted in his honor, to celebrate a career cut far too short. The event provided a moment for fans to reflect on the MC’s body of work, as well as discuss upcoming Big L related projects.

While Lovebug Starski spun classic L tracks, Jewlz, director of forthcoming Big L documentary ‘Street Struck: The Big L Story,’ gave some insight into the film, which he has been working on for over a decade. The director began filming when L was alive, and though the talented MC was murdered before he could complete his project, Jewlz opted to continue, using archival footage to finish the film, including interviews with former D.I.T.C. members DJ Premier and Showbiz, and childhood friends and collaborators like McGruff and Stan Spit.

“I felt that I’m still gonna do all I can do to try to preserve his memory on film,” Jewlz said. “All those people who may not have gotten exposed to him as an artist, hopefully they’ll get to see a different side of him as a person, a son, a brother, a friend, and as a phenomenal artist.”

‘Street Struck’ is planned for a February 2010 release, to coincide with the 11th anniversary of the rapper’s death. Check out the trailer below. Big L was one of the best, we’re excited to see how this film turns out.
