What we have here is some previously unreleased footage of Big L, who would have celebrated his 40th birthday today, participating in a friendly cypher with none other than the late Big Pun and Charlie Hustle. That’s right, two of the all time greats spitting a couple of their iconic verses in each other’s company. Mr. Coleman spits a portion of his “98 Freestyle” and Pun returns the favor with some bars that would eventually end up on “Super Lyrical”.

And that’s not all, hit the jump for an additional clip of L, in the studio with producer Ron Browz, reciting some bars from “Size ‘Em Up”.

    The main difference is Big L sounded just as good spitting it in person as he did on the studio version. Pun was wheezing his way through half his bars. Ain’t no punch-ins when you rap live in the flesh. RIP to both of them, though.

    Big L was a fucking genius.
