10 outta 10
Perfect album... Love the theme of the album, Birth to Death... The Production is top notch, Biggie kills every track lyrically... one of the great Hip-Hop albums to come outta The East Coast, when they weren't getting no shine in the mainstream...

whoever gave it a 1 or 5 has problems

this album is definently a 9, from the strength of Gimmie the Loot, Everyday Struggle, Unbelievable and Suicidal Thoughts alone

10-07-2005, 02:28 PM
shit was and still is the bomb, one of my first rap albums i ever had.

Thats Crazy

Anyways I Give It A 7 Outta 10

It Was Iight

Too Much Hype On This Cd

10-10-2005, 03:54 PM

the only song thats not that great to me is Respect... but its still listenable the whole way through.

10-12-2005, 03:39 PM
I don't even Like Biggie that much (he'd make my top 40 MC list) and I fucking Hate Puff daddy, but you have to give this album a 10/10...I can't see it any other way, its the epitome of a hands down classic, you cant argue with it. id like to see someone try. A 5? come on. you are Just trying to be different. I know BIG isnt he best to ever do it, hes not the best rapper alive, but he gave it his ALL on this album, A lot of it is Played out Gangster shit, but you can really feel his pain on tracks, there is no room for BS on Ready to Die.


10-12-2005, 03:48 PM
9/10...classic, wasn't feelin' tha "respect" song.

10-12-2005, 05:06 PM

10-12-2005, 05:19 PM
I Gave It A 10

When I First Heard This Cd I Didnt Take It Out Of My Cd Player For Like 8 Months Or Something,literally

10-13-2005, 09:56 AM
Classic, dope, Masterpiece


10-17-2005, 07:51 PM
20/10. Best BIG's album. Sickness.

10-24-2005, 06:48 AM
hm, some ill tracks and some not so great. but unbelievable, suisidal thoughts, gimme the loot, things done change, everyday struggle bring it up there. still its only considered classic cause it is BIG's best album, some tracks are rubbish IMO. (big poppa, me and my bitch).


06-15-2006, 05:24 PM
This album is so hard. Only joints i didn't like is Things Done Changed, One More Chance, Me And My Bitch. The skit that comes after Gimme The Loot is so funny because he coughs real bad after smoking weed hahahahahaha. I also like the skit Fuck Me where he's fucking Lil Kim and she's calling him a bunch of names LOL. He disappointed me with Life After Death album. He had too many mainstream songs on there. It's a shame he died so quickly because it would've been interesting to see how the rest of his albums would've sounded if he was still alive.

What are u talking about, Things done Changed is an amazing song.

Fuck it. Ima say it. I aint like the album
honestly i don't like this cd 5/10
you guys are fucking weird
this cd is amazing

08-04-2007, 05:56 AM
No featurings than Method Man? Bangin' old school beats? Unbeatable flow? Great storytelling and being a man who questions crimelife a little?

It's a classic. We rarely see albums like this.

His best album! One of the best albums! every track is a 10/10 for me except Respect, which is funky but boring.... I give 10/10 to Ready To Die

09-09-2007, 09:22 AM
honestly i don't like this cd 5/10

Biggie Smalls is the illest
classic shit

04-06-2009, 10:20 PM
every song is 5/5 heat.

top 5 album ever.

04-06-2009, 10:46 PM
I think it's about a 8/10

04-07-2009, 06:52 AM
The album is a 3/5 for me.
Too many poppish songs, that I skip.
Easy Mo Bee made Ready to Die for me.
Suicidal Thoughts and Everyday Struggle are also great tracks.
Ready To Die is a classic, but it isn't perfect.

04-07-2009, 07:12 AM

2 marks of 0.5 each get taken off for having to hear 2 skits of Biggie involved in sexual situations....thats some bull shit no one should have to picture

anyone who gives this album less than 9/10 should not be allowed to talk hip hop

whats next? users giving Illmatic or Doggystyle half-assed marks?!? get tha fuck outta here

04-07-2009, 07:53 AM

The only thing i dont like is that skit of him fuckin, but i just skip it. The softer tracks on this album are fuckin banging as well, and "Unbelievable" is exactly that. "Gimmie The Loot" is just fuckin insane.

04-12-2009, 08:08 AM
9/10, classic

04-12-2009, 08:50 AM
Classic cd with a lotta quotables and dope one liners....

04-12-2009, 08:04 PM
only song that let me down was things done changed. Classic album almost every tune triple AAA quality when i first heard it i had it on repeat for a month or two no lie

04-13-2009, 02:35 PM

how could things done changed possibly let you down?

"Because the streets is a short stop
Either youre slingin crack rock or you got a wicked jumpshot"

One of the most overrated albums ever...
I'll give it a 8.5/10 which is more of a banger than classic IMO
2 or 3 songs on it that i skip mainly because of the r&b theme. overall the album is fire but not a classic sorry.

Things done changed was one of the better songs on that album...how could anyone dis that?

04-14-2009, 04:40 PM
if this album would digitally appear on my pm inbox...i woldnt be mad! paz

10-23-2014, 10:19 PM
One of the greatest albums of all time. I still listen to these songs often.

10-26-2014, 09:36 AM
Don Universo, Ready To Die isn't overrated. How can you say the album is fire but then say it's overrated? The album is a classic. Have ya'll heard his Born Again album? I don't know why Bad Boy records released it after he died just so they could make some money off him LOL. That album has some terrible beats but I did like some of the guest appearances. Dead Wrong and Hope You Niggas Sleep are the only songs on the album I liked. I like the album cover. RIP Notorious Big and I miss you. Fuck them faggots who killed you.
