Remembering Notorious B.I.G.

by admin ·

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the still-unsolved murder of the rapper also known as Biggie Smalls. And while many celebrate his life and music, AOL Music has launched a memorial site featuring a video tribute with artists such as Jadakiss and Styles P.

“To leave a mark like that over two albums is ridiculous,” said Styles of Big’s short career. “You gotta think, he musta knew he was crazy to come out and say ‘my second album, I gotta do a double.’ And I’m gonna name it ‘Life After Death’ after I said I’m ‘Ready to Die.’”

Also included are remixes of the Bed Stuy emcee’s most popular hits, a streaming Biggie radio station and a listening party for the new CD, as well as an all-Biggie radio station.

As reported, Diddy’s Bad Boy Records honored the date with this week’s release of Greatest Hits, a compilation of 14 classic Biggie tracks as well as 2 previously unreleased tracks. Check out the new track “Want That Old Thing Back” feat. Ja Rule and Ralph Tresvant. RIP Biggie.
