Big L - Lifestylez Ov Da Poor and Dangerous (1995)

Classico, pra quem gosta de Hip Hop NYC do bom, esse disco do finado Big L é uma grande pedida. Pena que o cara se foi.
De quebra postei mais 2 versões de MVP ( o "hit" do cara), a do clipe e o remix do pessoal do coletivo Cookin Soul que ficou bem bacana

For those who appreciate good and old NYC Hip Hop, Big L still a GREAT alternative.
The album showcases L as a master of the lyrical stickup undressing his competition with kinetic metaphors and a brash comedic repertoire. The lead track, "Put It On" produced by Kid Capri, is a party cut with a criminal attitude. "M.V.P." snatches a brief segment from DeBarge's "Stay With Me" (later aggrandized on the Notorious B.I.G.'s popular remix of "One More Chance"). "Da Graveyard" features a young Cam'ron (here Killa Kam) and most notably a superb verse from a pre-Jigga Jay-Z (at the outset of his solo career). With better production and marketing, Big L might have found himself with a platinum album but instead he settled for platinum respect. This album captures the dynamic potential of a street legend, a legend who would later be gunned down in his prime.
By the Way, i took the liberty of put 3 more L's songs on the folder. Mvp (video version), Mvp (cookin Soul Remix) and Flamboyant, from his II album but in a Cookin Soul vibe again.
