Over two decades since the death of hip hop rapper Big L, a street in Harlem has been renamed “Lamont ‘Big L’ Coleman Way” in his honour.
The unveiling ceremony took place on Saturday seeing fans gathering to watch.

The sign that has been changed is on the corner of W 140th Street and Lenox Avenue in New York which is also close to where Coleman was shot and killed in 1999.
To continue his legacy, earlier this month a team behind the official Big L documentary, Street Stuck, launched a petition campaign to get the tribute. Read their statement below.
