I have a confession to make...I never listened to to this album or Biggie when this came out. No reason why, just wasn't what I followed. Today by chance, I found a nice copy of this and put this on.
GOD DAMN!!
what a joyous journey to be listening to this for the first time. I agree with Benny, the flow and track selection/arrangement is like reading a book. A book about a seriously talented individual growing up in uncontrollable chaos that cared enough to share his experience for the brief moment of time he was around.
A masterpiece.

this is one of the most complete rap albums created, from beats to rhymes to story telling and concept of the tracks and interludes....it is like reading a book....

This is not a reissue ( as stated by discogs ), but the original with 18 Tracks including 9 extra tracks, that only came out on this 2LP edition in 1995. To obtain those extra 9 tracks, this is the only chance and the real deal.
Reissue would indicate that those 9 extra tracks came out at an earlier stage, which is not true.
To be precise, the 1994 "LP" is more like an EP, compared with this 2LP. In other words, this is the first Notorious B.I.G. LP, completing the "mini LP" that came out in 1994.

I would strongly recommend getting this legit 2LP version, one of the very best HipHop LP's from the 90ties.

Does this version include the Machine Gun Funk with Parliament sample and does "Ready to Die" have the sample thats missing on the remaster also?
