Album: Ready To Die
Producer: Lord Finesse
Label: Bad Boy

Death was a common theme in Biggie's music and never is it more chilling than on Ready To Die closer, "Suicidal Thoughts." Instead of mulling over lost loved ones ("Miss U") or speculating about potential assailants ("My Downfall"), Big turns the gun on himself due to mounting stress in what remains a shocking twist. Nearly two decades later, the song still evokes emotion like few others.
