Big L Remembered on ‘139 & Lenox’

More than a decade after the posthumous release of Big L‘s ‘The Big Picture,’ a new compilation of the rapper’s songs is in stores today.

The 12-song collection of rare and unreleased tracks, ‘139 & Lenox,’ is a tribute to the revered DITC rapper’s hallowed Harlem block, and has been released by Flamboyant Entertainment. It features production by the late Roc Raida on ‘On the Mic (Roc Raida Turntablist Mix),’ as well as Big L’s former fellow Rawkus artists Hi-Tek and Buckwild. Previously-unheard early mixes to classic L tracks like ‘Ebonics’ and ‘Platinum Plus’ and a live version of L’s controversial first single ‘Devil’s Son’ can be heard alongside rare classics like ‘Furious Anger.’

Born Lamont Coleman, Big L was tragically shot and killed on February 15, 1999 at the age of 24, just a week before he was rumored to sign with Jay-Z‘s Roc-A-Fella records. His highly-anticipated second album ‘The Big Picture’ was released on Aug. 1, 1999 via Rawkus Records. The album was a collection of singles, unreleased songs and acapella recordings, featuring Fat Joe, Guru, Kool G Rap, Big Daddy Kane and more that went gold a month after it was released.

Gone, but not forgotten, Big L’s ‘139 & Lenox’ is in stores today.
