Bless the dead: R.I.P. Biggie Smalls

March 09, 2011|By Wesley Case

It's incredibly sad to be reminded Christopher Wallace, aka The Notorious B.I.G., was only 24 when he was killed. But it's beautiful that 14 years later, he's still in the discussion of rap's greatest MC. Biggie can be bumped any day, but go back to his catalog and really listen to his verses. They can still make aspiring rappers pick up mics and make the wack ones want to hang theirs up. Bless the dead. (BONUS: Here's Mister Cee's latest Biggie tribute. Spotted at Rap Radar.)
