"Casualties Of A Dice Game" is a song off Big L's posthumously released second album, The Big Picture. Produced by Ron Browz (yes, that Ron Browz), it epitomized all of the Harlemite's strengths on the mic: quick wit, vivid storytelling, and a mastery of internal rhyme schemes. Now, fifteen years after L's shooting death, the song is being brought back to life courtesy of a remix from Buckwild, a fellow member of the Digging In The Crates crew. Buckwild's remix has an aggressive energy to it, with its crisp drums and rumbling battle horns.
D.I.T.C. is getting ready to release The Remix Project on May 6. Other producers involved in the effort include DJ Premier, Alchemist, and Bink!.
