NYDN- He might have gotten away with three murders — but couldn’t escape his own. A 46-year-old man once suspected of committing three homicides, including the slaying of 1990s hip-hop star Big L, was fatally shot in Harlem, officials said Friday. Gerard Woodley was shot in the head and back during a clash in front of his home on W. 139th St. near Malcolm X Blvd. about 11:15 p.m. Thursday. “It was three shots fired. They were back to back,” neighborhood advocate Iesha Sekou said. “They were pretty loud and I heard one scream.” Police recovered three .25-caliber shell casings at the scene. A motive for the killing was not disclosed. Woodley had been arrested for three separate murders in the 1990s, but was never convicted, cops said. Woodley was accused of gunning down Big L, whose real name was Lamont Coleman, outside the rapper’s Harlem home on Feb. 15, 1999. Woodley had a grudge against the rapper’s brother, officials said at the time. The case was ultimately thrown out due to a lack of evidence, officials said. He was also arrested in January 1996 and a third time in February 1990, but wasn’t convicted in either killing, police sources said. When they broke the news to Woodley’s mother, she only had one question, police sources said. “Where was his bodyguard?” Lavern Black asked. Black told the Daily News she was struggling to come to accept her son’s murder. “It hasn’t sunk in yet . . . He was a loving son,” she said, before dissolving into tears. Woodley spent five years in prison an unrelated federal gun charge shortly after Big L’s death, police sources said. He was locked up again in 2011 on a second gun possession conviction in state court and released from prison last year, according to court records. He was supposed to be on parole until 2020, officials said. His brother, Thomas Riley, said Woodley and Big L were childhood friends. Riley suspects a Big L fan may have killed his brother, saying there’s an abundance of chatter online fingering Woodley as the rapper’s killer. In an earlier, unrelated case Thursday, a 52-year-old man was shot to death during a Brooklyn dice game, cops said. John Morrison was shot multiple times in the back as he rolled the bones outside the Glenmore Houses in Brownsville about 10:50 p.m., police said. He died at Brookdale University Hospital.
It’s kinda crazy, just the other day I was scrolling through the TV guide channel and up came the Stretch and Bobbito documentary. For those who don’t know Stretch and Bobbito are a couple of NY hip hop radio DJ legends known for their spot as being where a lot of famous 90’s rappers got their first chance on the mic. Guys like Nas, Biggie, Eminem, Pun, and Fat Joe etc. all were on The Stretch and Bobbito show before they were signed or famous. Well among the most famous of freestyle mixes laid down on their was with the one and only Big L and a young Shawn Carter. After listening to that freestyle you kinda sit back and wonder if Big L lived, how famous he would be now a days. Guy had prolific rap verses and considering he brought Jay Z in on the freestyle, its more likely than not that Jay Z wouldn’t be the guy he was today had Big L lived to rap another day. It’s like how some people say Leo only became famous because River Phoenix died or like how Len Bias could’ve been like head to head with Jordan if he didn’t OD after the draft. Such a shame but if this guy did in fact kill Big L, I’m glad he’s dead.
p.s- I like how Big L’s parents were named Gilda Terry and Charles Davis but for some reason his last name is Coleman?
What a wacky transformations Shia’s been through. Some guys go through a hip hop phase, some through an emo or punk phase but either way a majority of them end up becoming an adult relatively mature white guy. Shia’s been through some weird psycho leotard wearing rat tail rocking eccentric artist phase and now came out looking like a famous Miami latin rapper named Pitbull. Honestly thought when i saw it the photo was Mr. 305 shaved his goatee instead its just Louis Stevens going clean shaven. Throw a light goatee on him and have him yell “Dale!” and they’re unidentifiable.
“Blah blah blah its edited! its so fake! Its so edited!” If you’re that person, fuck you. Any video featuring a song from Nelly is like a hit and blog worthy, and any song from the era where he had a band-aid on his face was pure hot fire and if you don’t think so then you’re wrong and Dilemma happens to be like in the top 10. Somewhere in literature they’ll talk about Dilemma like its Shakespeare because what it is, is beautiful poetry. The tale of this fine black honey moving up the block in Nellyville but she got a man and a son tho-oh. Next thing you know they develop a love interest for each other but her man starts trippin about it but Nelly ain’t gon fight over no dame. Luckily, true love prevails when she comes through and sweeps Nelly up in her mans 2 seater because she just has pimp juice coursing through her brain and they just perpetually dance together through out the rest of time. One of the greatest love tales of all time.
Sidenote- how about Kelly Rowland receiving text messages over an Excel spreadsheet platform?
Now yea I know this post had nothing to do with the bird lip singing the “Ohhh” part in the song but thats kind of the point. Anytime Nelly works its way in a video it should go viral. At least just enough to make you go on youtube and listen to all of Nelly’s singles but lucky for you readers out there Im gonna provide that for you. Hit the music! E.I!

Listen To Jerry Heller’s full interview about how he regrets Eazy-E not killing Suge Knight below! #IFWT!
Well fuck, Jerry you shoulda let him have at it! That would’ve topped one of the best Hip Hop stories of all time. I mean at the point where E knew he had aids part of me wishes he just jumped outta the hospital bed, grab his sun glasses, jump in his whip still in the hospital gown, grab his gun and just run up on Suge and wet him up. Would be incredible.
Now Heller makes a good point why Eazy E shouldn’t derail his success just to murder a guy. I mean they made 10 million a month split between a company of only 6 people. Bananas amount of money. If i had that kinda cash flow coming in i dont know what it would take for me to even think about risking all of that. But then again Suge Knight really did deserve to die. I mean imagine if Eazy E did kill him, Biggie and Pac might still be alive. Maybe Dr. Dre would’ve really staying in the music business and we would’ve gotten Detox by now. Who knows. All we can really say is in hind sight i think everyone wishes Eazy E killed Suge knight.
The question i guess after that if he did try to kill him is if it would be enough. Suge has been shot with all types of guns i think. Dude is like 400 lbs of pure meat in my mind. I think he survived getting shot with some rifles and handgun bullets so i dont think a simple drive by would work. This is kind of a sick thought but im picture eazy E shooting him and then pulling the Tyler durden and just bleeding on him screaming “YOU DONT KNOW WHERE I”VE BEEN” at his face dripping Aids blood.
This last part got weird but you get my point. Fuck Suge knight. Think he’s in jail right now for running over his friend. Typical Suge.
