Skate Muzik Pays Homage to Big L on the 20th Anniversary of His Murder

Big L was a staple of hip hop’s golden era, and has been featured in a fair number of skate videos. The most notable being Stevie Williams The Chocolate Tour [1999] part. On February 15 1999, L was gunned down in Harlem. Skate Muzik paid homage to the Uptown rapper on the 20th anniversary of his death with an hour-long set of classic Big L tracks. In 2013, we handled the music supervision for DGK’s Fabian Alomar Free Fabes campaign, and chose L’s “Street Struck” because it perfectly encapsulated the era and Fabian’s story. Listen to the mix and revisit Fabian’s lost part above and below, respectively.
