Lamont Coleman (May 30, 1974 – February 15, 1999), also known by his stage name Big L, was an American rapper.

Big L was shot and killed in Harlem on the night of February 15, 1999. Gerard Woodley, a childhood friend of Big L, was arrested in May for the crime. At the time of his death, L had two brothers in prison. “It’s a good possibility it was retaliation for something Big L’s brother did, or Woodley believed he had done,” said Lt. Ellen Caniglia, spokesperson for the NYPD. Woodley was later released and the murder remains unsolved.
