One of the greatest album debuts in history - The Notorious B.IG. made history with this not only did it have just 1 vocal feature (Method Man) it shifted the heavily influenced West Coast sound led by Death Row back over to NYC.
This funk sample heavy record had not only radio hits but amazing album cuts.
After all is said and done, B.I.G. was dead by 24 and only recorded 2 full albums with his approval but the argument will be around for a very long time that he is the greatest to ever rhyme into a mic.
Listen to READY TO DIE HERE.
