Today marks the 14 year anniversary of the death of one of the most incredible rappers to ever touch a mic, Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G. Often referred to as Biggie Smalls or just plan B.I.G., he was responsible for launching the career of a female heavyweight in the game, Lil’ Kim and the rap group Junior M.A.F.I.A. which she was a member of. Biggie quickly claimed the top spot in the game with his debut album “Ready To Die”. But his promising career tragically came to an end on March 9, 1997 when he was gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles, California after leaving a party.
“Juicy was by far one of my favorite songs from Biggie. His rhymes spoke not only for himself and what he went through trying to make it on the streets but it spoke for everybody else who was going through the same struggle too. You could always count on him to spit the truth, no sugar coating it. R.I.P. Biggie. You will forever be remembered”
“Man, do I have to pick just one? I love all of Biggie’s songs, from when he first came out up until his death. There is not one song I can think of that I wasn’t feelin’ from him. His style was just so raw and his delivery was always on point. There will never be another like him”

“Warning went hard. The beat of the track mixed with Big’s rhymes was untouchable, making it, to me, one of his best songs hands down. I liked the video a lot too”
