Ready to Die " Track Info. Release Date September 13, 1994. Ready to Die The Notorious .

Excuse Christopher Wallace - aka the Notorious . and aka Biggie Smalls - for not sounding more enthused. While recording his debut album, Ready to Die - released 20 years ago this week, on September 13, 1994 - the 22-year old former drug dealer had a sick mom to care for and a baby girl to feed. Just because he had a record deal, there was no guarantee the Brooklyn rapper would make it through his 20s alive. And yet Biggie was cool with that - so cool, in fact, that he called the record Ready to Die. The title is as complex as the man himself

NOTORIOUS Music From and Inspired by the Original Motion Picture. Angels (featuring The Notorious . Diddy - Dirty Money, Notorious . 2007 Explicit Version. Nasty Girl (European & Australian Slimline). Jagged Edge, Nelly & Diddy. Ready To Die The Remaster.

But the shift has fossilized a certain kind of rap album, like The Notorious . s debut Ready to Die, released in 1994. The lawlessness it describes-robberies at gunpoint on the A train, open-air hand-to-hand crack deals on Fulton S. shootouts with the NYPD-land unfathomably to most New Yorkers today. Young transplants and natives alike would rather hear old tall tales than experience anything near it firsthand; distinct from nostalgia, it's more like moving into a home where a murder occurred. The thrill is a combination of fear and gall, rooted in the security that the scene will.

His debut album Ready to Die (1994) made him a central figure in East Coast hip hop and increased New York City's visibility in the genre at a time when West Coast hip hop dominated the mainstream. The following year, he led Junior . a protégé group composed of his childhood friends-to chart success. In 1996, while recording his second album, Wallace was heavily involved in the growing East Coast–West Coast hip hop feud. On March 9, 1997, he was murdered by an unknown assailant in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. A duet album, The King & I, featuring Evans and Notorious .
