BIG L DOCUMENTARY - STREET STRUCK Release Delayed

Big L Documentary Trailer (First Draft) - 'Street Struck: The Big L Story.'

Dangerzone Films has been producing a documentary film that chronicles the life of late Harlem rapper Lamont "Big L" Coleman. It will include interviews with family members, friends and musical collaborators including Fat Joe and DJ Premier.

"officially the date of release will be May 2010, Im going to put that date on the 2nd trailer when its done" - Jewlz The Director

This is all from Soobax (then Intellectual), from information he got straight from the director:

QUOTE
The documentary is tentatively titled Street Struck: The Big L Story and is gonna be put out by 2056 Media/Filmwerkz. It’s being organized by Jewlz (the director), Pooch aka Pucci aka Snaggdadon aka Snaggapuss from Doo Wop’s Bounce Squad (childhood friend of Big L/Big L’s girlfriend’s brother) and Donald Phinazee (Big L’s oldest brother). It was originally announced in 2007.

As far as we know now, the DVD will contain interviews with several people known in the music industry, though no names have been announced to us yet except for one (please proceed). On top of that we will finally see previously unseen footage of Big L talking, rhyming and on stage performing.

The most anticipated footage right now is unseen footage of two of hip hop's most notorious and super lyrical rappers to have ever blessed the microphone, Big L and fellow deceased rapper Christopher "Big Punisher" Rios, rhyming together, something the world has never seen before! On top of that they have recorded an interview with Big Punisher's widow, Liza Rios, who talks about her husband as well as Big L.

(The Big L and Big Pun footage is from the set of Fat Joe’s John Blaze video.)

As of now we know she talked about Big Punisher's plans to take Big L on tour with him. Big Pun eventually forgot to pick up Big L and right around that time he was shot and killed as we all know, leaving Punisher with an unbearable feeling of guilt.

UPDATE 17th May 2010
So far the latest on the doc is unfortunately we won’t be able to make the May 30th release date that I was so looking forward to making, due to me deciding to switch editors on the project and also due to us trying to make this Dame Dash interview happen, the Dame thing is getting closer to going down (BigLOnliners keep your fingers crossed for us…), word, other than that, all is looking very well, we’ve gotten some interviews, just last week we sat down with Mike Boogie who appeared on L’s first album, he was on 8 Iz Enuff, we also touched base with a young lady who had been dealing with Bloodshed of C.O.T.C. fame, the young lady had a child for Bloodshed and she has agreed to give us an interview as well. So as I stated, things are looking good and moving along so please tell the whole BigLOnline family I’m really sorry to upset the plans by not releasing Street Struck on the thirtieth but please bear with me. I’ve been blood, sweat and tearing with this project for a lil’ over twelve years so I want it to be the best project that I’m physically able to make. So once we’re able to arrange a newer date, as always, the family at BigLOnline will be the absolute first to know, thank y’all so much for all the endless support and concern.

Peace yours truly,

Jewlz The Director

UPDATE 10th November 2010
Another Interview with Big Don. Talking about Big L's music, and Death.. If i understand him correctly, it seems to me that Big L could have avoided being killed.. read on.

UPDATE 8th December 2010
"Man I been here bothering more an more with this documentary and I made an Executive/Friend decision, that were gonna drop the doc in May 2011. That month is Lamonts Birthday, an as I stated before: I never wanted to really Focus on his death, that's why I'm so against a February release. So my final opinion is May, 2011."

- Jewlz the Director

UPDATE 2016

New email update! It sounds like they're shooting the new L video this week:

Dear Friends, Fans and Family,
Dangerzone Filmz & The Phinazee Family would like to personally thank all of the Supporters who've continued to stand by us and helped keep the legacy of Lamont "Big L" Coleman alive and well. We understand that many of you may've thought that this project would never happen due to multiple delays and a lack of updates on our end. We'd like to apologize to all of the incredible supporters of Big L, we'll be providing regular updates to keep everyone on our Big L Direct list informed. As of now we have strengthened our team of people who will be very proactive towards keeping the public abreast of all the occurrences and happenings regarding the project and all items surrounding it. At the moment Dangerzone Filmz is in the process of conducting a casting call to find 2 Beautiful women as leading roles in the Big L music video. This music video will be filmed for an unreleased Big L song titled "Part of the Game". This song was produced and recorded by DJ Rob Dinero, a longtime friend and acquaintance whom worked with Big L around the time he took a brief hiatus from being in public eye. DJ Rob Dinero & Big L recorded quite a bit of music together. Much of that recorded material found its way onto the Big Picture album, which was Certified Gold thanks to Supporters like yourself. The single "Part of the Game" has only one featured artist, a musical prodigy named Nathaniel. We decided to release this song and video which will be a part of the "Street Struck - The Big L Story Soundtrack & Documentary. This video will be Directed by Jewlz the Director & Jay Onez of Money Shot Filmz. This video will be filmed during the month of November and with our Big L Direct Service and all our great Big L Social media pages we will continue to send updates. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us and we'll do our best to respond to everybody in a very timely manner. Thank you very kindly.
Yours truly,
Dangerzone Filmz & The Phinazee Family

  10. There is not enough video of Big L if there was people would put it up online. I think thats why this documentory has been delayed so much. I cant believe theres been over nine hours of footage that know ones ever seen floating around out there. Also L Only finished one studio album while he was alive. The big picture and everything else released with him on it seems like it was all just scraped togeather from freestyles and other either unfinished or just unreleased sources.

  21. This is never and most likely ever going to come out. What a waste of time and getting the fans hyped up about this....

    ReplyDelete
  22. fucking shit effort man you call yourself a fan...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Damn man... It's been years, and the reason this thing isn't out yet? Probably because L's mama is dead now, but his pops is still kicking... Legally, he's entitled to every cent made under Lamonts name now. That's probably why there will also never be another posthumous Big L album either. Because nobody wants to go through all that's effort, to see L's daddy (who walked out on him when he was born btw) get his pockets fat.

    ReplyDelete
  24. at least help us out with a date or give us the bloody doco! it's been so long ww3 is more likely to happen than this being released

  29. This Documentary needs to be released....not for the fans, for the public...Big L is a hip hop legend that is relatively unknown to modern world, If you look on YouTube there is no real tribute or documentary about his life...its so sad to see a Legend fall unknown.
