Big L documentary set for release

Can y'all believe that it's almost been 13 years since we lost one of hip-hop's greatest and most charismatic lyricists in Lamont Coleman? A damn shame and a travesty is what it was and still is but it's good to see that his name is still being repped and his legacy continues. Since last year fans of Harlem's Finest has been treated to two compilations of rare material and outtakes with "Return Of The Devil's Son" and last months "Danger Zone". One thing that hasn't found it's way to the stores or the festivals is the "Street Struck: The Big L Story" documentary about the life and times of Big L. The original trailer for the flick was released to the net a couple of years ago with the added text of 'Coming Soon' although the matter has been quiet since then.

That is all finally about to change now as the film is said to be finished and ready for release between August and September this year.  This is definitely something that I want to see as I think it will make a very interesting movie for any fan of the man as well as it's a fitting tribute to his name. In promotion of the film and its accompaning soundtrack, a music video has been shot for a track called "Me & L" by Mike Boogie who we heard with L on the classic posse cut "8 Iz Enuff". Check out the BTS clip from the video shoot below. 
Mega shouts to DangerZone Films for making this project happen, as well as Big L 0nline and 2 Dope Boyz for spreading the word!
