Lil Cease & Banger Give Details Behind Classic Life After Death References

Sixteen years since it was first released, and Notorious B.I.G.’s Life After Death sounds like it can come out tomorrow. The blissful whirlwind of Big’s charismatic mic mastery and the pragmatically cinematic soundscape of the likes of the Hitmen, DJ Premier, Havoc, The RZA and others, have made the diamond selling double LP undoubtedly a timeless gem and one of the all-time premier hip-hop magnum opuses. Many swear by it and have proclaimed the late Frank White’s last full offering the greatest rap album ever.

Whether you that’s the case or not, it’s tough to deny the genius of Biggie Smalls. And after reading these never before heard stories, the appreciation for the iconic Brooklyn Don should only grow. Here, Lil Cease and fellow Junior M.A.F.I.A. member Banger give the knowledge behind some of the most well-known lines and characters from Life After Death. —Shaheem Reid (@ShaheemReid) and Ralph Bristout (@RalphieBlackmon)
