Today marks what would have been Big L‘s 40th birthday, and to honor that we’ve got an unreleased video of Big L freestyling with Charlie Hustle and Big Pun. The video shows the three rappers in the studio, featuring L rapping a verse familiar to most fans (’98 Freestyle). The clips come about via Jewlz, a friend of Big L’s and part of Danger Zone Filmz. According to Complex TV, these clips are a part of an upcoming documentary titled Street Struck: The Big L Story.
The second video (below) features Big L spitting verses from his track “Size ‘Em Up” while in a session with “Ether” producer Ron Browz. The track would later end up on his 2000 release The Big Picture.
Happy birthday, and rest in peace to Big L.
