Some of you will consider this sacrilegious, mashing the untouchable Notorious B.I.G. (R.I.P.) with indie scapegoat Lana Del Rey, especially considering that yesterday was the 15th anniversary of Biggie’s death. But if there’s a man who can handle it, it’s Terry Urban. As a tribute to him, Urban marries Biggie’s 1994 Ready To Die with Del Rey’s Born To Die.
“The music from Lana’s Born To Die… remixed and resampled. The lyrics from Biggie’s Ready To Die… still timeless after all these years. It’s a perfect marriage… dark and mysterious… soulful and gritty. Lana told Vogue Magazine that Biggie was one of her biggest musical influences… and now… he is her musical collaborator. I present to you… Born Ready To Die.”
