“It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up! magazine/Salt-n-Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine/Hangin’ pictures on my wall/Every Saturday Rap Attack, Mr. Magic, Marley Marl.”
How could you not know the lyrics to one of the most inspirational, coming of age themed rap songs of all time? The way Christopher Wallace aka “The Notorious B.I.G.” eloquently described his rise to hip-hop stardom was masterful and simply unforgettable. When Biggie Smalls existed on this Earth in physical form, he blessed our ears with two solo albums that showcased his mastery of the microphone. He exuded a different type of swag, instilled confidence in all the fellas that looked just like him, and came hard on every song he starred on. We lost the Notorious B.I.G. far too soon, but his family, friends, and fans have done an incredible job of making sure his memory is never forgotten.
We’re going to aid in those commendable efforts and take a look at all the LPs that were graced by Biggie Small’s presence. From the albums he recorded while he was still here right on up to his posthumous efforts, these are all of the Notorious B.I.G. albums ranked from weakest to strongest.
