Born and raised in Brooklyn NY in 1972 Notorious 'Christopher George Latore Wallace' B.I.G. (Business Instead of Game) single-handedly put East Coast hip-hop back on the map with the release of his 1994 debut 'Ready To Die'. The first record to be released on Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs’ Bad Boy Records 'Ready To Die' with its razor-sharp autobiographical tales of life on the streets established Biggie as one of hip-hop’s freshest new voices. The album yielded three singles- the classic ‘Juicy’ a rags-to-riches story which included unforgettable rhymes followed by the smash ‘Big Poppa’ - which achieved platinum sales and went Top 10 on the US pop chart. The third single ‘One More Chance’ tied Michael Jackson's ‘Scream’ for the highest debut ever on the US pop charts.

Ready To Die cemented Notorious B.I.G. as one of rap’s greats before his untimely death in 1997. This double-LP is a re-issue of a 1995 release which included the bonus track ‘Who Shot Ya’. Custom-mixed gold vinyl European exclusive (US version is on white vinyl)

Limited in the UK to 250 copies only.
