Big L- A Legend In His Own Right

What if Big L wasn’t gunned down in a case of mistaken identity? Would the late great B.I.G. have been able to cement his reign as King of NY? Would Jay-Z and Nas have ever jockeyed for that very position? Would Fat Joe have migrated to the South? Would the Diplomats have come into existence? These questions become pertinent because of Big L’s affiliations (D.I.T.C., Children of the Corn) and his capacity of being a triple threat; vivid storytelling, captivating punchlines and his uncanny ability to spit off the dome.Ten years ago today, Big L on the verge of imminent success, was unfortunately murdered. Nevertheless, today his name is still very much alive amongst knowledgeable hip-hop circles despite only releasing two official albums before his untimely passing.
