Large Pro might as well be charged as an accomplice to this murder. Back in '91, he had a secret weapon and he fired it off lovely on "Live at the BBQ." That weapon was a brash yet gifted youngster from the Queensbridge Projects named Nasir Jones. The verse established "Nasty Nas" as the second coming of Rakim, paving the way for his legendary debut, Illmatic.
