I rarely listen to hip hop & rap, but the instrumental to Sky's The Limit is splendid. So emotional.

Good album. Biggie was perhaps the best rapper in the hip hop industry besides Nas who is just the best. Rest in peace, Notorious BIG.

My personal favorite Notorious B.I.G. album. Ready To Die is usually hallmarked as a classic of the East Coast Renaissance era, but his second effort definitely shows progression and maturity in regards to subject matter, lyricism, as well as beat selection. A 2XCD album released shortly after his death Life After Death, to me, will always be his crowning achievement.

An album that is close to perfection. Some of the best storytelling ever on any Rap recording. 25 trax and nearly all of them are dope . After many years i listened to all 6 sides of Life After Death this afternoon afain. Most Tunes sound fantastic. You can hear that it was a pleasure and an honour for the involved artists to be a part of the recording process, be it productionwise or as Co-rapper. Jay-Z & Angela Winbush bring such decent additional vocals few to their duet, that "Where's The Dough" ends up as one of the best trax from both this Double Album. There are a couple hardcore beats on this album, that rank among the best to ever apper on an East Coasr album. Niggas Bleed, Got A Story To Tell, Kick In The Door, 10 Crack Commandements for example. The feature from Bone, Thughs 'n Harmony is asonoshing good as well. There are only a few interludes i don't like and The California Ode "Goin' Back To 'Cali" doesn't satsisfy me completely. The G-Funk Clichèe used from "California Love" as Sample just doesn't fit with the rest of the album and after all California wasn't the best place for Biggie Smalls to be at, as he had to learn the saddest way just a few weeks after he finished this masterpiece of an album and got shot in the streets of LA after a Show
