Notorious B.I.G. - Ready To Die
Double vinyl LP pressing. The Notorious BIG delivered his debut album, Ready to Die, in September 1994. It's lead single, "Juicy," went gold, and the follow-up smash, "Big Poppa," achieved platinum sales and went Top Ten on the pop and R&B charts. Biggie's third single, "One More Chance," tied Michael Jackson's "Scream" for the highest debut ever on the pop charts; it entered at #5 en route to an eventual peak at #2, and went all the way to #1 on the R&B side. By the time the dust settled, Ready to Die had sold over four million copies and turned the Notorious BIG into a Hip Hop sensation - the first major star the East Coast had produced since the rise of Dr. Dre's West Coast G-funk.
