R.I.P. B.I.G.: Reflecting on Biggie’s Legacy
Remember when your parents used to -- or in some cases, still do -- tell you that you don't know what good music is? Remember thinking that they were just too old to relate? Well, I think I finally understand what they meant. While today's hip-hop young gunners are cool, there really was no one like the Notorious B.I.G.
In remembrance of the 10th anniversary of his passing, we present R.I.P. B.I.G.: The Life & Rhymes of a Hip-Hop Heavyweight. You can listen to his latest CD 'Greatest Hits' in its entirety, vote on the best DJ remix, take the Lyrics Quiz, and check out All B.I.G. Radio.
Plus, I even gathered some of the people who knew him best to reflect on his legacy. Shouts-out to Jadakiss and Styles P, Mister Cee, and the founders of Allhiphop.com for shedding light on murder conspiracy theories and the infamous beef with 2Pac. (I think Styles P wins the best quote award for saying Biggie "made fat guys want good shirts.") There's even bonus footage from Nas predicting what Frank White would be doing if he were still alive today.
But, the ultimate question for any hip-hop fan worth his or her salt is, which is better - 'Ready to Die' or 'Life After Death'? What do YOU think?
