Editors’ Notes

How to top a debut that single-handedly reinvigorated East Coast gangsta rap? Pick up right where it left off, but make everything way bigger.

Still, Big never sacrificed any of the narrative grit—look no further than “Ten Crack Commandments” or his much-imitated, never-duplicated flow.

NY's best MC to ever rule th mic...shame he never got to see the sucess of his album.. A definate classic. Biggie had so much more to offer than two albums...imagine if he where still with us.. Songs like..My Downfall, Sky's The Limit, I Love The Dough,Last Day n Nobody To Somebody Kills You are the best on the album in my opinion... If youve never heard this album then buy it!!

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...
