Rest In Peace Big L (May 30, 1974 – February 15, 1999)
With the 16th year anniversary of the passing of hip hop great, Big L last week, Maryland based producer J1K (captain of Producers United), commemorates the legendary lyricist’s passing with a redux of one of his best known tracks, “Put It On.” The influential website Earmilk described this remix as “a mellow, more pleasant way to experience the original for digesting Big L’s lyricism.”
Having harnessed over 16k followers and 1 million cumulative plays on soundcloud, the young DMV producer’s following is constantly on the rise and a name you need to look out for in 2015.
