17 Songs, 1 Hour 15 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Still counted as one of the game’s finest a decade after his death, Christopher Wallace gets enough love that his Greatest Hits collection was able to debut at Number One on the album chart. Biggie’s intensity was furthered by a deceptively mellow delivery, while even his lusher-sounding material stood in the shadow cast by his anger and what he recognized as a morally flawed past. Those sides are once again fleshed out here, with tracks from Ready to Die and Life After Death joined by J.U.N.I.O.R. Mafia’s “Get Money” and various posthumously engineered duets. (The popular “One More Chance” remix and the, er, notorious B-side “Who Shot Ya” are here as well.) The sense that a second generation of fans is discovering the rapper makes this an important reminder of a foreshortened legacy — one that will continue to thrive.

Just another way for Diddy to make money off B.I.G

Any true BIGGIE fan would have all these tracks .

Beware

First of all, this album is not The Notorious BIGs greatest hits. Its the Notorious BIGs greatest hits remixed with Puffy in the background on EVERY TRACK obnoxiously narrarating with little "UH's", "Yeah's" and "Uh-Huh's". And how can they call the "2 new songs" new "Biggie songs" if he is on one of them for about 10 seconds and the second one is an old song remixed with a new beat? So, if you want to hear 15 masterpieces by one the greatest rappers in history remixed and ruined then buy this album now.

SERIOUSLY Puffy needs new artists!

He's gotta stop makin' money off of BIGs legacy, let him rest!
If you want the music, buy the two albums. There's only two of 'em!
