20 Year Anniversary of Biggie’s Death (Rest In Peace)

20 Year Anniversary of Biggie’s Death (Rest In Peace)

On March 9th, 1997 Hip-Hop lost one of it’s rising stars in the Notorious B.I.G.  The impact of Biggie’s death still resonates today, as his influence on MC’s, DJ’s and producers can be heard daily. He gave us so many timeless tracks with “Who Shot Ya?” and “Party & Bullshit.” And arguably one of the quintessential Hip-Hop Classics “Juicy,” which may go down as the epitome of Hip-Hop in 3 verses.  The self-proclaimed “King of New York” (and hard to argue against) may have been a victim of art imitating life with albums “Ready To Die” and “Life After Death.”  A foreshadowing of things to come.  Even “Suicidal Thoughts” gave us a glimpse into the darker side of Biggie’s emotions. We were fortunate enough to be blessed with many Biggie classics before his passing. It’s only appropriate to give you 10 of the B.I.G.’s “Illest” tracks.

A superstar career cut short, it’s hard to believe it’s been two decades since Big’s passing.  Not a day goes by for this writer that a Biggie quote doesn’t get thrown around. “It’s All Good Baby Baby.”  My girl hears it often.  We mourn, but rejoice in the fact we can see the impression the Legend made on the game.  We’ll Always Love Big Poppa!
