We, here at SkratchTV, brought forth the unfortunate news of Big L’s mom passing on to a new life. GOD Bless her soul as she finally returns home to GOD and Big L. Below is a note from DJ Premier himself.
DJ Premier words:
For those who loved and respected the legacy of BIG L, I wanted to announce the passing of his mother Gilda”PINKY” Terry.
She passed this morning of February 10, 2008….her oldest son Donald gave me the news this morning so i am passing it on to all of you.
As some of you may also know, this Friday, February 15, 2008 will mark the 9th Anniversary of Big L’s passing so all of you who have radio shows, pay homage to one of the best lyricists who deserved a lot more shine than most Artists who ever put out a record.
This is also the 2nd Anniversary of J Dilla’s passing and he is another great loss to our Hip Hop Community 4 Life.
Big Up To his daughter, and to his brother Illa J, and especially Miss Yancey.
All I can say is may all of your souls fly above us and keep us funky, and we will see you when we get there.
