    I never tried. Other people try to compare Big L to Papoose, because I like Pap, they think they are proving something. I dont bother comparing too many rappers. To me, you either suck, your average, or your dope.

    "Honestly, what seperates Big L from people like Joe Budden, Cassidy and Lloyd Banks? He isnt better than them, he really honestly isnt. "

    Thank you for providing me with a new sig.

    Someone was callin for some examples of funny/clever/memorable Big L punchlines...


    "Breakin' in cribs with a crowbar,
    I wasn't poor, I was po; I couldn't afford the o-r."

    "I told him, Give up the dough, before you get smoked
    Oh you're broke? ( *shots* ) now you're dead broke"

    "Cause on the shelf is where your LP cold stood
    Because it was no good, that shit ain't even go wood"

    "A tech nine is my utensil
    Fillin' niggas with so much led they can use they dick for a pencil
    I'm known for snatchin' purses and bombin' churches
    I get more pussy on accident then most niggas get on purpose
    I got drug spots from New York to Canada
    Cause Big L be fuckin' with more keys than a janitor"

    "The crown is still mine, cause I drop ill rhymes
    A lot of rappers talk that murder shit and couldn't kill time
    One-two one-two, crews I run through
    Fuck karate, Big L practice Gun-Fu"

    "Step to this and get shanked up
    I knocked out so many teeth the tooth fairy went bankrupt"

    "I'm undefeated that's the stone truth
    Cause battlin' me is like fightin' a gorilla in a phone booth"

    "Always sprayin Tecs, because I be stayin vexed
    Some nigga named Dex, was in the projects layin threats
    I jumped out the Lincoln, left him stinkin
    Put his brains in the street
    Now you can see what he was just thinkin"

    ^ That punchline has been used, with slight variation, by so many mediocre mixtape Big L wannabes.

    Just to name a few, and keep in mind all these quotes come from one album, and really only from like 5 or 6 songs off that album.

    Thats what an artist is supposed to do. Make ill music and thats what makes an aritst significant. I'm sorry big l doesn't skateboard or have his own shoe line but thats aside the fact. Big L was in an era when there was still good hip hop going on even in the mainstream. You say that he sounds dated but thats more of a compliment because todays modern hip hop is generally in a really shit state. So ironically us real hip hop heads are forced to cling on to our tupac and biggie and big pun and big l and all that stuff from around 10 years ago much the same way that hip hop started when the ghetto kids were sick of the shit they heard on the radio and decided to hang on to the funk and other stuff instead of the disco shit which was too watered down and unaccepting of them.
    Now lets break it down to the basics. Because of this criteria, Big L is a legend.

    Flow- Big Ls flow is one of his trademarks and this is seen all the time when rappers are constantly being accused of biting his flow

    Delivery- Big Ls delivery was also one of his trademarks. You can straight away tell him apart from other rappers unlike most rappers in the south and mainstream altogether. The same can't be said about cassidy or loyd banks.

    Wordplay- This is something that he specialised in and probably the thing that makes him most significant as his punchlines have never been outdone and have never sounded generic nor corny. Because no rapper has ever outdone his punchlines and other wordplay this is what makes him an immortal legend. Also unlike a lot of todays underground rappers his punchlines didn't sound forced or collide with his flow

    Originality- The great thing about Big L is he often talked of the same themes as many other rappers but he would put a great spin on it or give it another concept which made it sound refreshing

    Storytelling- Still one of the few rappers who incorparates stories well into his music and uses stories with twists to keep us in suspense. e.g "the heist", "lifestylez of da poor and dangerous", "casualties of a dice game"

    Heart or heartless- Big L would generally create a cold-hearted evil persona through his raps. The most extreme display of this is his song "devils son" and at the same time he could turn around and show a softer more conscious side with songs such as "street struck". To me that kind of dexterity is amazing and is again something I see very rarely amongst rappers.

    All those things are what created unbelievable albums that deserve mad respect and are what makes Big L an almost godly figure in hip hop. Not the fact that he's dead. Big L is not overated. Infact he deserves every bit of praise he gets because he did what a good artist is supposed to do. Make good music.

    ^^^ Wow couldn't have said it better myself. I am especially glad you mentioned Big L's split personalities on different tracks, i was thinking about that today when listening to LODPAD.< hahah that's funny, but seriously we can probably close this thread now with that post, nothing else need's to be said, that is just the truth. But don't actually close it because it be chill is this thread gets the most repsonses of any non-sticky threads. Seems like it's up there, you probably know that stat off the top, right Oz?
