Notorious BIG 21st Death Anniversary

Today marks the 21 years that the Notorious BIG was murdered in Los Angeles. His music continues to live on and murder case is still unsolved.

Lately, there has been a lot of Biggie unsolved murder series showing on television; from Biggie: The Life of Notorious, to Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and Notorious BIG to Oxygen network shows and plenty more, PLUS the movie that came out in 2009, which was a good film; but it’s a bit overwhelming. It’s like the network are blatantly trying to make money off the unsolved murder (including Tupac) and to me, reopening the wounds of his loved ones, like his mother, ex-wife and more importantly his children. I feel like the case could be handled out of the public without creating television shows about it. I appreciate the perspective but it’s becoming a bit too much. Overall, I hope the murder does get solved.

Some of Biggie’s hits are “Juicy”, “Hypnotize”, “Big Poppa”, “Party & Bullshit”, “Who Shot Ya”, “Mo Money Mo Problems” and several more. Use this day to play all your Biggie hits if you’re a hip hop fan.

Personally, I didn’t listen to the whole list but 70% I did and my favorites were  Pressure, Culture, I Decided,  More Life, 2Chainz, Gotti, Remy & Fat Joe and even catch a snippet of Vic’s album, which wasn’t bad.

Now, the R&B albums this year were so LIT! I was more in tune with these albums than anything else. I actually did listen to all of them, minus Keyshia Cole’s 11:11 Reset

(I haven’t had a chance to listen to her, but I’ve always loved her and Imma give her her credit)

For me, it’s been a great year to listen to music and I’m excited to see what’s coming next year. I heard Cardi B should be coming with an album, Nicki Minaj, I wouldn’t be surprised if Drake came out with something.

Check out my next post on the artists that you may have slept on this year who may start shining bright next year!

If I missed anyone, call me out on it but more than likely if I didn’t list them then I don’t listen to their music orrrr I haven’t listened to it yet.
