Cam hints that there’s more to the story surrounding Big L’s death, as he also drops the name of Gerard Woodley, the man whom many believe killed Big L.
“139 Park, we started off as children/Grew up with Big L, and the dude who supposedly killed him/A week before that, though, Big L tried to kill him/What was he to do? […] When the time’s right I will tell you about these villains/Now everybody dead, so it ain’t about squealing.”
On Feb. 15, 1999, Big L died in Harlem after being shot in the face and chest nine times. The primary murder suspect was Woodley, a fellow rapper and childhood friend of Big L’s who was eventually arrested for the crime. But due to a lack of evidence, Woodley avoided formal charges, and the case remains unsolved.
