REST IN POWER: BIG LAMONT

 
Rest In Power Lamont Coleman aka Big L.  Thank you for allowing me to exploit the power of "Auto Reverse" with the "Put It On" tape maxi single.  The night I brought that home from HMV (or was it Tower Records?) was hours spent memorizing and dissecting the music in my headphones.

Also, thank you for burning Helly Hansen, as an urban staple, into the minds of everyone who saw your video.  You helped further define that '94-'95 period of the "Golden Age" (aka "Helly Hansen Rap").
