Biggie's obsession with death is littered throughout his entire catalog. Hell, both his album titles directly referenced it. But on Ready To Die's title track, Chris Wallace really went there, desperately claiming “I'm ready to die and nobody can save me.”

Big may have felt his “Life is played out like a jheri curl” by the time he'd reached his early 20s. But despite the tracks dark tone, he still found time to inject the comedic “I got techniques drippin' out my buttcheeks/Sleep on my stomach so I don't fuck up my sheets.”
