Today marks the day that Notorious B.I.G aka Biggie, was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles in the year 1997, when he was just 24 years old. It has been exactly 21 years since he passed. If you are still wondering kutsi sikhuluma ngabani, well, you are too young for us bro!

Notorious was one of the best lyricists of the time, with his clear, powerful baritone, effortless flow on the microphone and willingness to address the vulnerability, as well as the harshness, of the hustler lifestyle.

After releasing his debut single, Juicy, under Bad Boy records, he released his debut album, Ready to Die, in 1994. There is just no way to ignore how good that album is, each song better than the next!

Our personal Biggie favorites are:

Big Poppa

Sky’s The Limit

Everyday Struggle

Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems

Me and My B*

R.I.P to the best rapper of all time!
