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”.
All footage is courtesy of Jewlz of Danger Zone Filmz, who is currently working on a documentary about Big L called Street Struck: The Big L Story.
