Editorial Reviews

It's time to celebrate the legacy of the best rapper that ever did it. Notorious B.I.G. wasn't just a rapper, he was a storyteller, a prolific poet, and through his words, persona, life and music he opened doors and opportunities for Hip-Hop as a whole. The release of Greatest Hits denotes the commemoration of one of the most historic bodies of work in Hip-Hop. + 2 brand new tracks They are: Running Your Mouth & Want That Old Thing Back. This is the explcit version.

3.0 out of 5 stars half-filler April 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
An artist with as influential (and short) a career as Christopher Wallace, aka The Notorious B.I.G., is done a disservice by an album like "Greatest Hits," especially since it was conceived as a tribute to the Brooklyn rapper 10 years after his tragic death.

While half of the release lives up to its premise with choice cuts from B.I.G.'s brief but brilliant studio album output like "Juicy," "Hypnotize" and "One More Chance/Stay With Me," the other half is muddled with posthumously-released cuts that are more vehicles for guest artists like Nelly and Eminem than true Biggie classics.

Removing the layer of artist purity, one would expect radio hits like the massive tribute release "I'll Be Missing You" or duets like "Mo Money, Mo Problems" (with Diddy), especially since minor hits like Junior M.A.F.I.A.'s "Get Money" made the cut. But no, sadly, neither of the first two tracks are anywhere to be found, while the latter track and "Notorious Thugs" (with Bone Thgs-N-Harmony) made it onto the album.

This album is worth it if you're only passively interested in Notorious B.I.G.'s biggest radio hits (and don't mind paying for a lot of filler). Serious fans and B.I.G. beginners should seek out "Ready to Die: The Remaster" and "Life After Death" and call it a day.

Ten years since the passing of Christopher Wallace, one of the greatest MCs to ever rock the mic, Bad Boy Records and exec Sean "Diddy" Combs have released the first Notorious B.I.G. compilation. I find a Biggie hits compilation redundant in the same way I find a Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth or a Digable Planets collection redundant because he only released two albums in his career, but more than that, those two albums were five-star classics and skip-free material. "Ready to Die" and "Life After Death" are two of the 1990s most important albums, and in my opinion both should be appreciated in their entirety. But as this is a greatest hits album, I also have a little beef with the tracklisting. I understand that in order for fans to buy this, some more songs would be needed than just the originals from his two albums released during his life. But that said, putting songs from posthumous releases like "Born Again" and "Biggie Duets" doesn't seem right to me, probably just serving to misinform and confuse new listeners. Like other listeners said, it's a mystery why his most popular song, "Mo Money Mo Problems," would be omitted.

That said, I can't belittle most of the songs here. Standards like "Juicy," "Big Poppa," "One More Chance (Remix)," "Warning," "Notorious Thugs," and "F... You Tonight" are simply classic hip hop, showing a legendary MC in top form. You can't front on that material.

For a Biggie hits collection, this isn't terrible, but it would've been easy to make a better one and in principal a Biggie hits compilation isn't the most practical thing anyway. Biggie fans should steer clear of this, they have all the material already anyway and would only ever consider owning this for die-hard completion purposes. I suggest the same to new listeners.

3.0 out of 5 stars A few songs short of "Greatest". March 6, 2011
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
When putting together a hits collection from somebody with only two big albums out, key songs should NOT be missing. I mean c'mon. Sure this has "Juicy" and "Big Poppa", and even "One More Chance" and "Notorious Thugs". BUT you can't argue that "Mo Money, Mo Problems" should be here. That was the first B.I.G. track alot of people ever heard. Also where's "I Love The Dough" and "Sky's The Limit"? Two of the catchiest songs on Life After Death. I even think ending this with Puff's "I'll Be Missing You" would have been a nice touch. Hidden track maybe. Still there's some classic tracks here, and overall good for the new fan. Let me be the 100th person to say just get Ready To Die and Life After Death.

Biggie was pretty dope for the short time period that he graced the mic. But he doesn't have an extensive catalog like PAC to be able to make a greatest hits CD. Half the songs are from Life after death and the the other half are from ready to die with a few singles mixed in. So if you own the first two albums (which is about 95% of the world population that do own them) you will be wasting your money. In this day in age with technology, I could probably put together a better greatest hits disc of BIG at home if I wanted the songs on one disc. The cd is a marketing ploy for Puffy and is a complete waste of money for most of the consumers in the world.

So here we are...one decade since the murder of Christopher Wallace aka Notorious BIG. Rap has changed since Biggie left us. We all miss him. Remember back in summer of 1994 when he came out with "Juicy". Today that remains my favourite song from him off of his (recently put back on shelves) album "Ready To Die". Then in '95 he introduced the world to his crew Junior M.A.F.I.A., which held almost two dozen members, including Lil Kim and Lil Cease. They had hits like "Get Money" and "Players Anthem". Then in '97 Biggie recorded his final studio album "Life After Death" with his only single released before his death "Hyp.otize", before his life was cut short.

So what we have here is a Notorious B.I.G. greatest hits album. Most of these songs on here are in chronological order. The classic songs are here, like "Juicy", "Big Poppa", and "Notorious Thugs". And we can't forget the song "One More Chance (Remix)" with Total. That was the summer of '95 song, back in the day. And then the love song "Lovin' You Tonight" with R. Kelly, which is another classic song.

There are some songs that were origonally 12" singles. The well known "Who Shot Ya". Also "Dead Wrong" was another 12" single before it was placed on the "Born Again" CD and featured Eminem.

Then there are more of those "rehashed" songs on here, like the sorry "Notorious B.I.G." and "Nasty Girl". Both songs were lead singles from his postmothous albums "Born Again" and "Duets: The Final Chapter" respectively. Those were technically hits from Biggie, even if they were made after he was dead, but they were still hits. I'm just not feeling how that is though, nor any of his posmothous hit songs. As well as the new songs "Running Your Mouth" and "Want That Old Thing Back".
