#BIG20: 20 Classic Notorious B.I.G. Songs To Jam Out To
20 years has gone past in a blink of an eye and while we’re celebrating his life, it still royally sucks that the man born Christopher Wallace cannot be here to reap the benefits of his dope (yet short) career.
Ahead of his time in flow, style and vernacular — The Notorious B.I.G. was a standout ever since he came on the scene with “Party & Bullshit”. From there, he was a standard-bearer in everything he did, as we all rocked Coogi because of him, threw our rollies in the sky because of him and, eventually, flooded the streets he walked on because of him.
It’s no secret why so many MCs, artists and personalities honor the late, great Frank White in song, art and other ways. The man was a genius, a giant, black Alfred Hitchcock-ian lyricist with charisma for days + songs for the replay.
With that all in mind, our condolences continue to go out to his family, friends and fans who still miss him dearly. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of his still unsolved murder, we have rounded up 20 classic songs from the Notorious B.I.G.’s catalog for you all to jam to.
Peace out to Brooklyn!
