R.I.P Lamont Coleman aka Big L

Its seems like it has been forever since Lamont Coleman left us to be in a better place.I mean if you don't know or heard of him you should be ashamed to call yourself a hip hip listener. He was one of the greats.It was only 10 years ago he was shot down by a man who was considered his childhood friend.It isnt like he wasnt talented since he was in high school Big L was spitting with a group "Three The Hard Way". It was a bunch of real good friends but L realized that it was never going to be that serious. He did though catch the eyes of the D.I.T.C clique. He was featured on a few tracks with the D.I.T.C boys untill he released his debut solo album Lifestylez Ov Da Poor and Dangerous. This killed the charts having not one but two tracks on the top 25 billboard rap tracks. Sadly after working so hard on his next album Big L was slain before "The Big Picture" (His second solo album) was released. Its was a very big loss to the hip hop community but he is in a better place.But thru his music he lives on.
