Album of the Day: The Notorious B.I.G.’s 'Life After Death' at 25

Posted 23 May 2022

We’re revisiting legendary rapper, The Notorious B.I.G.’s masterpiece second album, released just weeks before his untimely death in March, 1997.

'Life After Death'

Christopher Wallace, better known as The Notorious B.I.G., would have turned 50 years old tomorrow; unfortunately, the legendary East Coast rapper was killed in 1997 just weeks before the release of his second album. The acclaimed Life After Death picks up right where Biggie's debut left off, and like its predecessor, is peopled with thugs and playas trying to survive some very mean streets. But for all its violent drama, the collection also sets its sights on mainstream radio with the catchy beats of Mo Money Mo Problems and the unexpected optimism of Sky's The Limit. As befits its epic 24-track length, the diamond-certified Life After Death features a small army of talented producers (Sean "Puffy" Combs, RZA, Easy Mo Bee) and guest rappers (Jay-Z, Lil' Kim, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony) while remaining the product of a singular vision.
