Harlem 1993 Lamont “Big L” Coleman grew up in Harlem and that’s where Danny Clinch wanted to photograph the young rapper for the cover of his debut solo album, Lifestylez ov da Poor & Dangerous. This part of Harlem was known as the "danger zone". It was also here that Big L was killed in 1999 at age 24 after suffering multiple gun-shot wounds just a few blocks from where he grew up. A lyrical master of New York underground hip-hop, Big L was part of the D.I.T.C. (Diggin' in the Crates Crew) and will forever be remembered as a life gone too soon. Happy birthday Big L 👑 @dannybones64 will be at @annenbergspace this afternoon 4p PST. If you happen to catch him he might sign your book 😉
