139 & Lenox is the second posthumous studio album by American hip hop artist Big L. It was released on August 31, 2010 by Flamboyant.[1][2][3] The title of the album refers to the street of Harlem where Big L was raised in.

The 12-song collection of rare and unreleased tracks is a tribute to the revered DITC rapper's hallowed Harlem block, featuring production by the late Roc Raida on "On the Mic (Roc Raida Turntablist Mix)", as well as Big L's former fellow Rawkus artists Hi-Tek and Buckwild. Previously-unheard early mixes to classic L tracks like "Ebonics" and "Platinum Plus" and a live version of L's controversial 1st single "Devil's Son" can be heard alongside rare classics like "Furious Anger."[4]
