Notorious B.I.G., Ready To Die (1994)
Label: Bad Boy
Gunplay: "The production was dope. He was sounding real hungry with his rhymes and his storytelling. It was dope. [I first heard it] through the mixtape circuit and then ultimately the album. Friends and shit. 'Everyday Struggle' was dope. 'Warning'...all that. 'Unbelievable,' that was one of my favorites."
