St. Nicholas Park

From “'98 Freestyle” by Big L

Lyrics

I got style plus the way that I be flowing is sharp
A while back I used to hustle, selling blow in the park

About

Big L grew up in central Harlem, just a block away from Cam'ron at 139th Street & Lenox Avenue. While Cam'ron and the Dipset were slinging drugs at 145th and Broadway, Big L was dealing in St. Nicholas Park. As anyone who’s been to Washington “weed weed weed weed” Square Park knows, parks are meccas for New York drug dealers
