Hand picked records important to the history of Soul Strut.
Lone official release from Harlem-based, DITC alum Big L . Big L stood out for his unique funky flow jam packed with memorable punchlines, shrink-wrapped with a dark sense of humor. His 1995 debut is classic NYC boom bap right before Puffy and the Bad Boy clan would ruin the scene for good. Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous features the championed underground uptown hit "Put It On" along with other ominous, jazzy flavored bangers like "Danger Zone" and "I Don't Understand It". Unfortunately, Big L would lose his life in a drive by shooting in 1999.
