“Biggie Biggie Biggie can’t you see, sometimes your words just hypnotize me,” maybe the aptest description of The Notorious BIG’s captivating flow and swagger. The King of Brooklyn was a once-in-a-lifetime artist, and when he dropped his second and final album Life After Death, it was clear his legacy would live on forever. It had been three years since the release of his debut album Ready To Die and the wait was well worth it.
The Notorious BIG is one of the kings of hip-hop, and Life After Death was the masterpiece that crowned him one of the all-time kings of rap. Tragically, Biggie never had the chance to enjoy the fruits of his labor. Christopher Wallace’s life was taken from him just two weeks before its release in March of 1997. His life has undoubtedly carried on after death, his music lives on forever.
