Spread love, it’s the Brooklyn way!
It goes without saying that The Notorious B.I.G. is arguably one of the greatest rappers to ever grace the mic. With a cannibal-like approach in the booth mixed with a super-smooth demeanor, Biggie was the quintessential MC. By stringing together two musical opuses in the form of Ready To Die and Life After Death, his influence continues to show in the hip-hop community. The Bad Boy signee solidified his legacy with a seamless catalog, including tracks like “Juicy,” Who Shot Ya,” “Warning,” “One More Chance” and more.
XXL wishes Big Poppa a happy birthday, as he would have been 42 today. Rest in peace.
