Ready To Die The Remaster (Edited)

Ready To Die The Remaster by The Notorious B.I.G.
Released: Sep 1994
Label: Bad Boy Records
Ready to Die was a line in the sand for hip-hop. Afterwards, everything was different: simply killing enemies was no longer enough, you had to blast caps while wearing Armani suits. On "Things Done Change" Biggie pours blood over those with rose-colored glasses: "Back in the day our parents used to take care of us/ Look at 'em now/ They even f*cking scared of us." He dedicates "Juicy" to those who called the cops on him. Elsewhere, we get sex raps from a 300-pound "chronic smoking, Oreo cookie eating, pickle juice drinking, chicken gristle eating" rap legend. It's made palatable by Biggie's wit and endless charisma.
