Throwback Pick

Big L - The Big Picture (1974-1999)

Just sit back and chill, and listen to what a real up-and-coming working hip hop artist used to sound like (Young Money, eat your heart out). The album was only half finished when Big L was killed, and was finished by producers and collaborators that he had worked with before as a kind of tribute album. The album went on to be certified gold, and Big L is referenced and remembered in many other classic tracks (see the Gang Starr track Full Clip for a good idea).
