Loyal reader, join me in welcoming Charles (aka ironflag) to the blog!! He'll be bringing a new perspective on hip hop culture, starting with the "Title Track" Tuesdays and Thursdays. And yes, the passion is there for the culture as well so there will be no shortage of that. So with this being said, the following will be his first post and much props and respect to Charles for his future contributions! Salute!
The Notorious B.I.G. - Ready to Die
Produced by Easy Mo Bee
"Fuck the world, fuck my moms and my girl
My life is played out like a Jheri curl, I'm ready to die!"
Biggie's classic debut, Ready to Die, celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this month on September 13th. There's SO many classic songs from this album, and the title track is definitely a highlight. Produced by the legendary Easy Mo Bee, who contributed on the boards on five other songs from this masterpiece, Ready to Die's title track features an aggressive Biggie on the mic with tons of memorable lines such as the closing bars to the first verse featured above.
