It would have been nice to hear really rare material from B.I.G. redone, for instance his rap on Heavy D's "Buncha N*ggas" or 354 & Big L "Real Gz" track.
Listen to this and then "Ready To Die" after it - remember B.I.G. for the latter album!
I was lucky enough to get a full copy of this early and it's very good. There appears to be 7 deleted tracks from the original track listing (it was supposed to be a double lp), but damn it still thumps.
Things kick off with 'The Most Shady' an Eminem produced and guested track also featuring Obie Trice and a much better P Diddy. Dude is rhyming in a Eminem style and pulls it off. Then comes The Swizz Beatz produced 'Spit Your Game' which is totally brilliant. I don't even like Swizz Beatz OR Bone Thugs, but I rate this tune highly. Just Blaze blesses 'Living In Pain' with Mary J and 2Pac. 'I'm With Wuteva' a menacing tune over a sample from the film Halloween is good, but doesn't even have a rap from Biggie on it???
There are some definate filler cuts and unnecessary interludes (hence 4 stars) and the final track with Korn is simply 'What the hell'!!!!! But the killer tracks have got to be the Bob Marley sampled 'Hold Ya Head' which is a remake of 'Suicidal Thoughts' and 'Just A Memory' with the Clipse which is a remake of 'You're Nobody (Till Somebody...)'. Pure class the both of them.
Overall a much better effort than 'Born Again' and should have been released instead of that poor effort really, but what happened to the other 7 tunes?
I still recommend you go and buy this and remember what tight lyrics really sound like.
