Here we have the first cut from Big L’s second forthcoming posthumous LP “Return Of The Devils Son” which will be released on 11-23-2010. Check out the press release followed by the download link below.
This Tuesday, ten years after his sophomore album, The Big Picture, went gold, and twelve years since his unsolved murder in a Harlem studio, the family of one of hip-hop’s all-time greatest lyricists, Big L, will release Return of the Devil’s Son. The album includes 21 so-far unreleased songs from “that nigga you’d expect to catch wreck on any cassette deck, I’m so ahead of my time my parents haven’t met yet.” L never had a hit, or the kind of lasting legacy that comes from rap martyrdom. What he had was skills: battle proven punchlines your opponent doesn’t come up from, seen-it-all swagger and the kind of comic relief reserved for good slasher flicks—you only laugh to keep from shitting yourself. Check out this re-up of “Danger Zone” from L’s classic, Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous.
