Big L – “Unexpected Flava” (New Joint!)

Big L

With all due respect to my current favorite MC’s, Elzhi, Phonte, Wordsworth, Lupe, Kanye, Budden, Royce, etc., and the all-time greats like Jay, Nas, Andre, Common, Pac, Eminem, Biggie, Lauryn, and the rest…my favorite MC of all time is Lamont Coleman. Dude was way ahead of his time and his death was a tragedy. I still wonder what would have happened if he ended up signing with Jay-Z like he was bout to do. If you’re not familiar with him, read up real quick.

Most of L’s material has leaked to the net over the years, but last week an unheard joint named “Unexpected Flava” came out on the first volume Lord Finesse’s Rare Selections EP. Apparently this was recorded in 1991 and didn’t make the final cut on his classic debut, The Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous. Unexpected flava is right…

    Em was on pace to be one of, if not the, all time greats, but he’s just fallen so far off with weak beat choices and random verses about bodily functions and nonsense.

    i miss the old Em.
