One of the most celebrated rappers of a generation, Notorious B.I.G released just one full length LP during his lifetime, 1994's 'Ready to Die'. Released just two weeks after his untimely passing following a shooting incident in L.A, the follow up, 'Life after Death', was an instant hit achieving Diamond certified sales and spawning several commercially successful singles, 'Hypnotize', 'Mo Money, Mo Problems' and 'Sky's The Limit', each based on highly memorable samples. This weekend marks the album's 20th anniversary and in keeping with tradition, we've teamed up with www.mixcloud.com/waxpoetics to present an exclusive mix of album tracks, alternate versions and of course original sample material.
