Life After Death is too mainstream to me and i don't listen to it. Ready To Die is his best album because that album is so hardcore and gutter.

I don't see this as classic, comes very close though. There are many classic songs, but also some very subpar songs...

I give it a 8,5/10.

Beardman, which sub-par songs do you mean?

Personally, I don't think there is any filler on the album. The Lox song is the most useless song on there. He just expanded his range to show that whatever you wanted to do, he had it covered. His flows were incredible on every song, not just the killer slow flow from ready to die. He really stretched himself as an artist. Classics don't necessarily not have filler. All eyes on me had filler on the second disk, but people think that's a classic.

That's the whole point of the title. Life after death. People made money, I'm living. I can't be ready to die any more. It wouldn't be real. I think he grew by leaps and bounds as an artist. I gave it a 5. You can listen to it now, and it doesn’t sound like 97. It is the blueprint for music that's going on right now. Not flawless, but classic. It changed the way that people made albums. Not as seamless as ready, but a truer picture of whom he was as an artist.

Its a solid album, 7.7/10, but it ain't no classic, how you gonna come out and estbalish yo self as the most hardcore rapper in new york wit ready to die, then be singing on your next lp? Its full of good tracks but it ain't no classic.

I've got to disagree here, I don't think that's the right attitude, sorry.

Life After Death for me is in some ways superior to Ready To Die. As a narrative Ready To Die was probably better and the flow was more smoother I'd accept that, but Life After Death truly showed everyone what B.I.G was capable of.

It was funnier, it showed more range, different paces, different kinds of beats, more subject matter, more variety, so he sang? So what? So have most emcees at some point. Put simply, it showed growth, people don't like that. It seems that in rap an artist is not allowed to grow. You can't be Ready To Die twice and that's the key here, especially with millions in the bank, a new born baby and all your dreams accomplished.

Whatever though, it's all opinions. They're like assholes as they say, everyone has one... etc. etc.

This Lp was trash, it had a few good tracks, then some wack shit like that jay-z song, that song wit too short, and a few other tracks was trash too. On ready to die you couldn't find one track that was below good. Ready to die>>>life after bullshit

I'd say this is a 8 or a 9. A few mainstream songs that I skip but the rest make up for it. Somebody's Gotta Die = crazy ass story.

10/10. yall can say its mainstream all you want but it's called taking your music to another direction. biggie did that excellently, making song in variety. keep in mind he also had ton of fans with high heels so all those r&b joints are just for them and I honestly dont mind them. the hardcore lyricial joints on the album are nothing short of amazing and he was probably the first rapper to dish out a commercial song that was lyrical with timeless flow - hypnotize.

i can't believe people are actually calling this album wack, you ain't got a fucking clue.. this is definitely a classic, 9.5/10 album and on par with "Ready to Die" in my opinion - BIG was an incredible MC on RTD but he peaked on this album on all levels, storytelling, switching flows, breath control, everything. the album has great diversity too, lots of styles packed on this double disc but it still flows great.. i skip two songs on each CD ("Fuck You Tonight", "Mo Money Mo Problems", "Nasty Boy", "Playa Hater") but other than that it's all amazing music.

Decent album but too much rnb bullshit filler on it....

But you still got banga's like Kick in the door , Ten Crack Commandments, Long Kiss Goodnight etc.

Sky's The Limit could have been one of my favourite tracks of this album if it wasn't for those faggots of 112 to ruin that track with their gayass singing....


Best joint of the album for me :
