The Notorious B.I.G. - Ready to Die
Masterminded by Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs, Ready To Die and the Notorious B.I.G.’s career shifted hip-hop for good in a fashion that still resonates to date. Taking music in a direction that balanced hardcore rap with commercial appeal, singles “Juicy” and “Big Poppa” showed that the once strictly street oriented rapper was willing to compromise for the sake of his own benefit. Birthing the blueprint for pleasing multiple audiences, it was the remix to “One More Chance” that took him and Bad Boy Entertainment over the top.
