Big L 'Focus On The Real' + Mr. MVP EP

Big L Focus On the Real Advert

Big L's 'Focus On The Real' advert is still one of my favorite ads ever released for an album. If I remember right, Danny Clinch was behind the iconic images shot for artwork on 'Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous.' I've been a fan since 1992 and it still saddens me that we lost such a true talent, especially before he'd reached his peak. If you've never heard it, you can also check out the 'Mr. MVP EP,' which features a few tracks that used to be (pre-internet) fairly hard to find. It's available to listen/download HERE. Rest in Peace, Big L. Where do you rank Big L? Top 10? 20?
