About this album

Ready to Die is the debut studio album of American rapper The Notorious B.I.G., released September 13, 1994 on Bad Boy Records. Recording sessions for the album took place from 1993 to 1994 at The Hit Factory and D&D Studios in New York City.

The partly autobiographical hardcore hip hop album gained strong reviews on release and became a commercial success, reaching quadruple platinum sales. It was significant for revitalizing East Coast hip hop at a time when the genre was mostly dominated by West Coast artists.[1] In 2006, Time magazine named it one of the 100 greatest albums of all time.[2] It was nominated for Best Rap Solo Performance for “Big Poppa” at the 1996 Grammy Awards. It also won 2 Awards at the Billboard Music Awards.

    This along with Illmatic are the greatest albums of all time. I'm gonna have to be honest here, although I like 2Pac better I like this album more than any of his albums.

    This album goes hard,its whole concept is masterpiece.Amazing intro opens his life then B.I.G. tells his story and it ends with Suicidal Thoughts and gunshot,.It gave me big impression.This is why this LP is so great for me beside of his amazing flow,punchlines and unique storytelling ability.
