Summary: Throwback Thursday
About Artist: The Notorious B.I.G. (aka Biggie) is the one and only immortalized east coast rapper.
About Song: This song is from Biggie’s debut album Born to Die. This version is from a collection of original versions, before executive producer Puff Daddy (aka Diddy) changed them before their final release.
Fun Fact: Though Ready to Die came out in 1994 the song was outlawed in the United States in 2006 due to an uncleared sample. All copies were removed the shelves and a new ‘edited’ version of the album was released removing/censoring the illegal parts.
Favorite Part: This song is a classic and I love the jazzy, tribe-like, boom bap sound of this version.
