Where has the time gone? Today marks the 20th anniversary of the release of one of the pantheon albums in hip-hop. The Notorious B.I.G.’s debut album “Ready to Die” came out 20 years ago to this day. Loaded with classics like “Big Poppa”, “The What”, “Warning”, “Machine Gun Funk” and many more, the album helped hip-hop get into the mainstream media.
It’s just a shame that Big couldn’t be here to celebrate the feat. So enjoy the radio today, they will actually be playing good music all day for once and reminisce on your favorite track from the album. Hot 97, a major contributor to not only Biggie’s success, but hip-hop’s honored the anniversary with classic stories from Mister Cee, Funk Flex and Miss Info. RIP Big and thank you!
