The Big Picture LP
The Big Picture New York rhyme-slinger Big L didn’t live to see the release of The Big Picture, but the posthumous album captures him at his smooth-spitting best. The quick scratches and uptown cool of boom-bap classics like “Fall Back” and “Flamboyant” find the Harlem-born rapper’s fluid flow in full effect.
Elsewhere, the fat, pulsing bassline and playful steel drums of 2Pac collaboration “Deadly Combination” fuse East and West Coast sounds in a funky hybrid that crystallizes both regions’ ’90s enterprise.
Lovingly rendered for the collectors who dig aesthetics and folks with finely refined tastes, this piece not only is an ode to Hip-Hop fans worldwide, but to honor the legacy that Big L created.
