“I made this Big L remix at home. We used to play it on WBLS back in the day when I was with Marley. When I met Big L, it was just a friendship thing. He knew I made beats and I knew he rapped. I used to go pick him up in my black Honda Accord; I would scoop him up in Harlem right on 139th. We would drive around New York to the Bronx and he would just be rhyming over my cassettes that were filled with beats. L would just be going in! That was the illest time I’ve ever spent with Big L.
What can you say about him? Listen to what he said and how he delivered his rhymes. Look at the noise that was surrounding him…Roc-A-Fella was trying to sign him, this person and that person was trying to sign him. To me, Big L was the greatest thing that DITC ever produced. That’s not to disrespect Diamond D, OC, Fat Joe or Lord Finesse. You know how you have the golden child in a group. Big L was that person to me.”
