big L isnt underrated. hes underground, so alot of people sleep on his shit, but if any hip hop fan ever heard his shit, or anybody for that matter, it would blow them away. But one thing that does piss me off is that biggie and pac (no disrespect to either of them) are treated as if they are the only good rappers ever murdered. Big L was one of the best mcees to ever come up in the rap game. But everytime that you see any rap on mtv especially theyre always talkin about big and pac, but the only time that you hear Big L mermorials is on gangstarr stuff ( thats not all of the times you hear that shit but its the only thing that is close to the mainstream). But as far as him bein underrated he's not. its just that only real hip hop fans know who he is and how dope he was.
