Album Review

Released to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Notorious B.I.G.'s death, Greatest Hits places the two "collaborate with a dead legend" albums — 1999's Born Again and 2005's Duets: The Final Chapter — on equal ground with Ready to Die and Life After Death, the two landmark albums Biggie released while he was on the planet. Anthologizing one of the most compelling figures in hip-hop history seems like a right thing to do. Basing such a release around four albums that are greatly divided between essential and inessential, however, amounts to something of a mess. Two obscurities are used where it would've made much more sense to select "Mo Money, Mo Problems" and "Going Back to Cali," two of the biggest hits not included on this disc, and it's really off-balance to include three tracks from Born Again when only one more is pulled directly from Ready to Die. Longtime fans need not go near this; the same goes for beginners, who should reach for Ready to Die.

Unnecessary

There is no reason for this album. Biggie only produced 2 Albums and a handful of non-album singles during his lifetime. If you want to hear Biggie's Greatest Hits, listen to Ready To Die beginning to end and a couple of the tracks on Life After Dealth. Songs produced years after an artist's death have no business anywhere near a greatest hit compilation. You hear that? Its the sound of Puffy raping Biggie's rotting corpse. Cha-Ching!

All of them !!!

Tout les plus gros hits de Biggy sont là ! Cet album est très complet . C'est un très bon achat pour tous les fans de BIG et du east coast/west coast !!

Pointless

I will admit that every song on this record is straight fire. Almost. Any real B.I.G. fans don't need to waste their $$$ on this because we already have all the good tracks and have no use for a track with Ja Rule (biggest joke in the game) or one with Snoop (Big didn't even like you Dogg). Cop Ready to Die and listen to what HipHop should sound like. Don't worry Puff, you'll still get paid.

Biography

Born: May 21, 1972 in New York City, NY

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s

In just a few short years, the Notorious B.I.G. went from a Brooklyn street hustler to the savior of East Coast hip-hop to a tragic victim of the culture of violence he depicted so realistically on his records. His all-too-brief odyssey almost immediately took on mythic proportions, especially since his murder followed the shooting of rival Tupac Shakur by only six months. In death, the man also known as Biggie Smalls became a symbol of the senseless violence that plagued inner-city America in the...
