Notorious BIG helped reinvent and reinvigorate East Coast hip-hop 25 years ago with their 1994 debut album Ready to Die. Today, the album has been certified six times platinum and is considered not only one of the best hip-hop albums of all time, but also one of the best albums of all time. After making a name for himself with guest appearances on other artists' songs, Biggie (born Christopher Wallace) began recording his own album in 1993 in New York City. "Ready to Die" was finally completed in 1994 and released on Bad Boy Records, which was founded by Sean "Puffy" Combs, the album's executive producer. Ready To Die is primarily an autobiographical album that showcases Biggie's immaculate storytelling across 17 tracks that explore his life and experiences as a drug dealer. It takes the listener on a journey that stretches from the protagonist's birth, through his time on the streets, to his suicide. The album's first single, "Juicy," went gold and peaked at #3 on the Hot Rap Singles chart and entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it peaked at #27. The second single, "Big Poppa," was an even bigger hit, topping the rap and R&B charts and reaching #6 on the Hot 100. "Big Poppa" went platinum and was nominated for a Grammy® Award in the Best Rap Solo Performance category. A remix of "One More Chance" again topped the rap and R&B charts and peaked at #2 on the Hot 100.
