Big L Rarities – VLS Style

T.R.O.Y. Forum regular TheBigSleep also happens to host one of the most specialized blogs in all the rap blogosphere, Big L Rarities. Given his penchant for the late Lamont Coleman’s rare material, TheBigSleep’s digital collection of most of Big L’s vinyl singles in mp3 format is not surprising. Take advantage of his generosity and build your collection up. If you have any of the missing singles, do the right thing and spread the love. Oh and another thing – the Big L entry at Wikipedia is HOT GARBAGE. Somebody needs to get on that, his legacy deserves better treatment. — Thun

  4. The Big Sleep says:

    Well happy thanksgiving to me. As a PhilaFlava member and daily T.R.O.Y. blog viewer, seeing my name, site and post on here is surreal to say the least. Thanks a bunch for spreading it around, I’ve hoped that I have something worthy of contributing for a while now and I’m proud to make the cut, this collection has been years in the making.

    There’s more on the way too, I’ve been in contact with DJ Mike Nice for a while and he’s been providing info and material, him as well as a few select other people.

    In the Weekly Request Thread (#4) Tapehead upped the O.C. Can't Go Wrong single so I updated my site.

    I also found a supposed Party Over Here link but it's password protected with no hint of what the password might be. Any help there would be greatly appreciated. Here's the link: http://www.mediafire.com/?0snfjljtmgk

  6. The Big Sleep says:

    @ Swann, thanks, the password actually is time4sumaksion (which I thought I tried before but maybe I fucked up).

    Can you somehow up/link me to the couple L singles you have, by chance? Because that would be amazing.

    Also before Invincible Bully Inc. went private/invite only I requested a possible reup of the Ras Kass H20 Proof VLS and/or instrumental, I could only find it on your blog, it’s from September of last year. So if it got put up again I can’t see it and if not, do you/does someone you know have that beat/vinyl rip still? It’s nowhere to be found. Thanks again, peace.
