May 21st, 1972 – March 9, 1997

Dude was only 24. I still remember when Ready to Die came out in 94…i was like 9, and hid it from my mom cuz she didnt want me listening to that “bad music”.

Hell yea, that album was bad as a muthafucka. The extra long intro of Christopher Wallace’s life was classic and was a perfect set up to the next track, “Things Done Changed”; referencing the good ol’ days and the fucked up shit in the 90’s. From the insane multi-character/schizo narration about robbin foos in “Gimme The Loot”, to his classic mainstream chart topper “Juicy”…this was one of the most raw, influential and complete albums in Hip Hop history.

If yall dont remember, Biggie was shot to death in his Suburban truck shortly leaving a Vibe Magazine after party in L.A. by an unknown man in a black Impala. His case is still unsolved.

Biggie plays a huge influence in my music, with his incredible wordplay and delivery, and amazing storytelling. Undoubtedly one of the best lyricists to ever bless the mic.

Rest in Peace B.I.G
