Lamont "Big L" Coleman unleashed his debut album Lifestyles of the Poor and Dangerous over 20 years ago, the only full body of work he produced before he was fatally shot in 1999, just as his star was rising. Despite his passing, his clever wordplay and rapid-fire flow placed him among the greatest MCs to come from New York -- and now, L's family is looking to strengthen his legacy with the new lifestyle site, Big L Life. 

Big L's estate launched the website to celebrate L's legacy and introduce the fallen rapper's music to a whole new generation. In conjunction with the website launch, a full range of merchandise will also be available for fans to purchase.

The collection is comprised of T-shirts, hoodies, and hats with "Big L" illustrated on the front as well as pieces that salute the legendary rapper's posthumous albums. Fans can purchase a t-shirt that reads "Ebonics" -- a nod at the Harlem native's 2000 posthumous album -- and hoodies with "L Corleone" emblazoned on the front to honor his 2012 posthumous album of the same name. 

All proceeds from the sales will be donated to after-school programs in Harlem and around New York City. Shop Big L's merchandise collection here
