Flamboyant Ent. Remasters Big L - "The Danger Zone"
For over a decade, the only avenue that Big L fans had for listening to his rarities was through shoddy bootleg dubs - until now. Flamboyant Entertainment (in conjunction with The Estate of Lamont Coleman) has remastered some of Big L’s most famous freestyles along with rare & unreleased tracks. Featuring Gang Starr, Lord Finesse, D.I.T.C. and more, the end result is “The Danger Zone” - hitting stores on May 31st.
With his untimely death in 1999, Big L’s departure left a void in the hip hop scene that has never been filled. Known for his witty, literary, lyrical style and for being near, but never quite at, the center of commercial success, Big L appeared to be on the verge of a breakthrough in 1999. Mase and Cam'Ron, two of his partners in the early '90s group Children of the Corn, went on to MTV stardom, but Big L's 1995 Columbia debut, “Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous,” earned only limited critical attention.
At the time of his death, Big L's independently released single, "Ebonics," was receiving consistent airplay on the indie-centric radio mix shows hosted by WKCR's Bobbito Garcia and WNYU's DJ Eclipse. In July of 2000, his posthumous sophomore full length “The Big Picture” was released to critical raves and phenomenal sales, propelling the album into going gold.
With last year’s “Return of the Devil’s Son” which featured unreleased performances, the thirst for more Big L material has had a second awakening. With “The Danger Zone,” Flamboyant Entertainment is looking to give the die hards what they have been looking for after 10+ years, so fans can properly complete their Big L collection.
“The Danger Zone” brings the heat. Correctly.
Available May 31st on Flamboyant Entertainment/RBC Records
