Bad Boy Plans Release of Biggie’s Greatest Hits

biggiechain.jpgBad Boy Records has announced the upcoming arrival of The Notorious B.I.G.’s Greatest Hits which is scheduled to hit stores on March 6. The release of the 17 track compilation coincides with the 10th anniversary of the Brooklyn MC’s passing on March 9, 1997. Greatest Hits will feature classic Biggie tracks such as “Juicy” and “One More Chance,” as well lesser known songs like “Running Your Mouth” that were never officially released. “Christopher Wallace was more than an artist, he was my friend,” said Bad Boy CEO Sean “Diddy” Combs. “The Notorious B.I.G., as most knew him, was a rapper, a story teller, and a prolific poet. However, many didn’t have a chance to see the father, husband, and man that I knew. Through his words, persona, life, and music, he was able to open doors and create opportunities for Hip-Hop as a whole. I wanted to celebrate his legacy, life, and work as we mourn his senseless death 10 years ago. The release of Greatest Hits makes it clear to the world why the Notorious B.I.G. is the greatest rapper of all time.”

    It’d be nice if they include that track he did with Supercat before “Ready to die” came out.

    “Lil’ Dap is better than Pac and Biggie combined”? Have you ever heard Lil’ Dap? Come on now.

  • J.R.O.

    Political poet? Wasn’t that ‘Pac?

    Greatest MC ever, tho’. But, I don’t know about Diddy… But yeah, I’ll cop like Carl Winslow, definitely.

  • T.Bain

    What hits? Come on man, B.I.G doesn’t have enough material, you and I both know this, maybe if the man had been puttin in working, instead of bullshittin with fag Diddy all day he would have more material. Pac was making movies (plural) in court, on tours, and in jail, and still did more in 8 months than B.I.G did in his whole career! Fact

  • The Originator

    diddy must be desperate for a platinum artist.

  • http://myspace.com/djchase247 Eastside Bread Maker

    Come on now Diddy. I’m from Brooklyn and love BIG as much as the next man (pause) but big only did 2 albums. Thats it. and you have already exhausted the shit out of those two. There are no other hits to come… If you want BIG’s greatest hits go buy his 2 albums

  • Ray

    Yo, Puff is going too far. Leave that shit alone Puff. No one wants to hear,those old ass B.I.G verses from Mr. Cee’s basement sessions.

    This is the smartest thing I’ve read on this entire site today …

  • YOUNG STUNNA

    WEEZY REPLACES BIG FOR THE NEXT XXL ISSUE!!! THANK GOD, THEIR AINT NOTHING LEFT TO TALK ABOUT BIG AND WEEZY IS THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE SO DONT TELL ME HE AINT DESERVIN.

  • Choke-A-Hoe

    Weezy is not the best rapper alive nigga. Ice Cube is…

  • john cochran

    Its no need for that. Just cop all his albums. Diddy need to stop trying to make monet off my man’s legacy. I could see if he had dozens of unreleased tracks like Pac did, but they just recycling the same music.

  • guuuuunnnnooootttt

    weezy is the new b.i.g with a better flow he doesnt sound like hes got food in his mouth and he is as lyrically talented, big reinvented the game though for sure RIP B.i.g.

  • AZ

    I have all the BIG albums I need. I won’t support Piddiot by giving him money BIG’s kids won’t get.

  • real philly nigga

    I don’t believe people saying weezy is better than BIG. BIG had 2 I said 2 albums and he is in the majority of everybodies top 5 and you little fucks say weezy is better? Im through. They say don’y argue with fools because from a distance you can’t tell who is who!!!

  • J-marr

    I personally think that a B.I.G. greatest hits album is unnecessary.
    If anything they could re-release his
    first two albums, because they have all the hits. The last two joints, well that was for Puff obviously. It’s
    still unfortunate that we didn’t get a chance to get more material from this guy. He was definitely one of the
    greatest. R.I.P.

  • Big Sam

    Biggie had the best flow, Tupac had the lyrics. Put them together and you have the greatest colaberation of talent ever! In the history of music, not just hip-hop.

  • hillside-vallejo459-

    BIG WAS NOT THE BEST…2PAC TOUCHED EVERY ONE AND THE REALEST EVER TO RAP. BIG HAD 2 ALBUMS AND HIS SECOND ONE HAD A LOT OF FEATURES. JUST CAUSE HIP HOP GAME FROM THE EAST DOES NOT MEAN YOU GUYS HAVE OR HAD THE KING..RIP 2PAC

  • http://NONE KILLA BLACK

    Weezy is not the new BIG, there will never be another BIG, weezy got his style from JAY-Z,so he aint origanate his style so how can he be better if he had to use someones else style to get hot, and he only bin hot now for 2 years, please, BIG SHOWED niggers how to be fresh, well (him and Puff) but they brought HipHop back to the east coast when it was with DEATH ROW,THEY STARTED THE flossing, ya it fucked the game up, but at the same time, there started to be alot of black millionairs at that time,off of them showing people how to do it, and am not sucking them, this is REAL TALK, so BIG came up at a very instrumental time in HipHop, we needed him, and he took us to the next level, so weezy can eat a dick with his kissing nigger ass, i only hope my man music can be as instrumental as bigs was, REAL HIPHOP IS IN THE BUILDING (MYSPACE.COM/BLU-BLACK).

  • Hurricane Game

    ” …If you want BIG’s greatest hits go buy his 2 albums…”

    Gotta Say this is the truth thats fo sure. No other hits from big aftr Ready 2 Die & Life After Death(No Nasty Girl)
    Diddy need to stop usin big memory the way he is.

    PS. Pac still was better than B.I.G.

  • EReal

    Pac was an activist and poet.

    Biggie was a rapper. Thats why he is the GOAT. His shit is still being used, still being bit, ripped off, ect. 10 Years after his death. Big blew NY up and changed the game forever. Go listen to ‘Ready to Die’ and you’ll hear how even now, its ahead of its time. ‘Ready to Die’ over any album released in the last 5 years, str8^ front to back banger.
    Biggie is the best rapper, so far, EVAR.

    Pac is nice lyrically and politically and even on a marketing level, but his flow and delivery can’t step to BIG, and BIG had the love for RAP and RAP alone, he lived and breathed RAP since he was young. Pac was just a smart business man, activist, and writer.

    Weezy isnt the best alive, because he isnt the best in the south. Go ask Weezy F(ucks) Baby Goldberg if he wants to step to Eminem. Yeah, didnt think so. Eminem is the best rapper alive right now. IMO!

  • Sam

    Nasty girl is gonna be on the album… That’s embarrasing to Biggie’s memory…
    Biggie is the G.O.A.T, Pac ain’t near Biggie in rapping skills and rhyming, although Pac was a great rapper, he probably wouldn’t have sold so much if hadn’t died. Don’t say “the same with Biggie”, because Biggie had love for the people and the people had love for him.

  • My Effin’ Opinion

    @ EREAL …

    To this day, I really think that Canibus can get at Em Lyrically .. The only thing is that Canibus can’t make a good song for shit and Eminem is the total package.

    .. but again, Lyrically, I gotta give it Canibus over Em.

  • deaf blaze

    shoot… how about doing a movie in biggie’s honor? it could be a two parter….

    Hell just get Ready to Die and Life after Death cd/download it from itune.. hell I still bumps it in my ride everyday…

    but if ya want greatest hit.. get the cd/record by supercat that has the remix version of the bad ass reggae/rap song call dolly my baby… the bad boy version… Biggie rip it.. and it was my first time being expose to this mofo.. cuz he was strictly unknown at time….

  • EReal

    ^ Effin

    I like can-I-bus too, he’s a monster. But he’s really a freestyler to me. Songs like “rabbit run” from the 8 Mile Soundtrack and anything from The Invasion mixtape would make me say that Em is the sickest. His beef shit is awesome, plus I love those 2 – 3 minute tracks of Em spittin fire, no hook, no breaks, just him spittin for 2 mins straight, sick.

  • illmatic

    Diddy needs to stop feeding off a dead man like ya’ll said. He only had two albums, and his second he was already starting to sell out. RIP Big.
    Pac was better. Nas is best right now, well been best for a while. Eminem was good but fell offfff. Canibus, eh. Papoose,aahhlright.

  • 1SHOT DEAL

    WELL LET’S THINK HERE ….DIDDY GIVES MOST OF THE PROFITS FROM BIGS C/DS TO HIS CHILDREN AND HIS MOTHER……

  • J S-O-T

    not hatin, i just don’t think you can consider someone to be the GOAT when they only released 2 albums, i mean c’mon now. Obviously this isn’t B.I.G’s fault i jus don’t think you can call him the best ever after 2 albums, who knows?, maybe he would have gone on to fall off hard, or maybe he would have made more classics if he hadn’t of been tragically killed, we’ll never know. I personally think Nas is the GOAT, yeah he fell off(Nastradamus) but great artists can come back from that (Stillmatic,Gods Son, Hip-Hop is Dead, jus my opinion

  • My Effin’ Opinion

    “BIG was great”

    no homo.

    LMFAO @ havin’ to watch everything I type so it don’t appear “homoish”

  • Equanimity

    This man Diddy is at it again….christ…

  • stoneyisland

    greatest of all time? I loved that nigga Big but was he better then Kane or Rakim during thier prime? I hate to say it but he wasnt, maybe if he had more albums or had more time on the mic I have no doubt he would have been the greatest of all time. As for that dolphin tooth, ugly P. dipshit o ditty or whatever he calls himself, you are a low down cocksucker to keep raping bigs legacy only to fatten your own pockets.

  • Prince Of The South

    I got 2 questions.

    1. BIG first album got pulled off the shelves, so how he going to put out a greatest hitw cd with the songs he didn’t get sample clearances for?

    2. When is Puffy going to let BIG rest in peace, he said Duets was the last album he was going to put out?

  • Jersey Boy

    DIDDY STOP WITH THE BIGGIE ALBUM ITS OVER SON , Pac lives on

  • Achilles

    I think you people should stop using the ‘N’ word to describe black people. Elevate your minds.

    PS: There is no best. How do you measure best? Record sales makes it a popularity contest. There is no definite way to say that one MC is better than another. It all comes down to taste. My favourite mc’s in no order

    Redman
    Biggie
    CL Smooth
    Black Thought
    Jay Z
    Nas
    2Pac
    Ice Cube

  • Who cares anymore

    I am all for him coming out with these extra albums. Some of the money is still going to BIG’s mom, and daughter. I can’t stand PUFF DADDY, P-DIDDY, or DIDDY what ever it is, but as long as he is looking after the family of his biggest star, then I am alright with the extra albums

  • reelest

    puff dadddy, p diddy, p dipset, p dissing what ever name u call your self STOPPPPPPPPP and i mean 4 heaven’s sake STOPPPPPP dishonoring B.I.G by putting out albums that are woefully remixxed and no one buys.

  • Justice

    Let the Dead Bury the Dead

  • xtc

    Sounds good but biggie is not the greatest rapper of all time cuz there is no greatest rapper of all time its all based in preference. To me eminems the greatest to others tupacs the greatest shit I even know people who thinks jay-z’s the greatest and he aint even all that he’s just a good ass hustler

  • Lock_Down

    Biggies greatest hits will go to the top, as if he wasnt dead.
    R.I.P the our nigga B.I.G

  • Who Cares Anymore

    It’s hard to put a top 5 of all time together. There are so many things that can be argued. If you go by sales the EMINEM is the greatest, followed by JAY Z, and so on. Lyrically you have NAS, RAKIM, EMINEM, BIG, PAC, BIG L, etc… It is all in what you prefer. No matter what you say though BIG is up there. I do feel that these post death albums do make people feel diferently about the artists, but the rap game is all about getting money, and this is what BAD BOY is doing. Keep hustlin.

  • THE PROPHECY

    WORD TO BRITNEY SPEARS SCALP, BIGGIE WAS THE GREATEST.
    I saw an interview where they both were sitting together freestyling. Pac rhymed first. When Big rhymed, Pac was amazed. He just shook his head and drank his henessy in disbelief.

    People like Pac more because, he was controversial. He knew that shit sells and told Biggie to his face, he just beefing with him to get paid.

    Pac knew being a “nigga” scared white folks more than guns and roses ever could and thats what white kids like.
    He figured out a long time, if he’s the realest nigga, he doesn’t have to be the best rapper.

  • THE PROPHECY

    AND T Bain, Biggie wrote the Junior Mafia album and little Kim’s album (So he had four albums) and his albums. He has freestyles that Puff won’t release because what he says in them may hurt his legacy. Look how long it took them to release the song Dead Wrong. He was talkin about fuckin niggas wit brooms, rapin little sis, moms suckin tha dick etc etc.

    There is alot of material his mother won’t allow Puffy to release.

  • chalieboy

    hey fellas,wat do yu think about the song hypnotise?i think it was the only one he did good.Mr Pac however remains the dead best

  • Kezz

    Pac is the best rapper 2 hav lived

    How much milk can U git from a dead cow…no pun intended cuz Biggie always been my favorite rapper but Puffy…Diddy or whuteva he wanna call himself nowadays, is milkin’ tha shyt outta Biggie, THERE AIN’T NO JUICE LEFT, how many times and different ways can we hear Ready to Die and Life After Death got dammit!!!!! Pac had vaults of shyt from when he was locked up, Biggie ain’t have that much, he only had 2 and a half albums worth of salvageable material, but Sean, being tha Overbite Dracula that he is, is gonna keep on flippin’ tha same mattress!!! BadBoy needs help and it’s obvious, as much as U holla DC and bring yo ass down here, sign some dayum body, start some new shyt!!! FUCK!!!! R.I.P BIGGIE!!!
