Release It! 100 Biggie’s Tracks That Could Have Been
“Greatest rapper of all time died on March 9th" yelled Canibus in his epic battle track against the legendary LL Cool J.
Years earlier same banging on wax led to banging in the streets and we lost probably two of the best MC’s that ever did it. While Tupac’s legacy was enormous and we got to hear albums and albums and he kept topping the charts years after he passed away, his friend turned nemesis Biggie Smalls left almost nothing to his fans.
But when we take a look at what they did to Pac’s tracks, countless remixes of leftovers from his early years and albums that does not live to Pac’s standards and Pac on the tracks with the people he would probably never work with if he was alive and had a chance to choose, maybe it’s better for Big that way. Just remember the horrible Duets compilation and not so great Born Again…
There was a number of rumors circling the web for years about tracks Biggie recorded but never released and fans have been anticipating to hear some more. Here is what could have been, someone compiled all of the rumors from various places and it turns out Black Frank White could have released at least 4 or 5 more albums after he died. But I highly doubt that if there really was some Biggie tracks out there Puffy wouldn’t try to capitalize off of it and if we consider what we got from Duets, maybe it’s better this way. Anyway, if you are in search of some Notorious tracks you never heard, check this list to see what you’re looking for.
