Previously, it was reported that late rapper Big L was to be honored with a street named after him in Harlem. The renaming ceremony was set to take place on 140th Street and Lenox Avenue. Since then, the ceremony for Big L took place and found the likes of Fat Joe and the Ruff Ryders crew making appearances at the celebration.
The celebration in the form of a street sign came about after a petition was presented by the makers of a Big L documentary called ‘Street Stuck.’ An announcement was made on Instagram saying, “It took a whole lot of effort and Support to get to this great point but as a collective, we made it happen. The Biggest Thank you’s go out to the Dope 500 plus people who signed and passed the petition around so we could get this street renamed. There are entirely tooo many good people that gave this their support, so with all my heart, I personally want to say THANK YOU!!!!” Take a look above.
