Biggie 21

It is twenty-one years since Biggie Smalls was shot dead.

I wrote about him on the twentieth anniversary of the murder, so will probably repeat some things today.

At the time, he was one of my favourite rappers. I first came across him in late 1994 while I was watching Yo! MTV Raps. His music video - Juicy - came on my screen and I loved it.

I've been listening to it a lot lately. It's still one of my favourite tracks.

As I am sure I wrote last year (I haven't looked), his posthumously released album, Life After Death, is my fave of his despite Juicy being on Ready To Die.

You can read my Biggie tribute from last year in this post. I also wrote about him on the fifteenth anniversary of his slaying. In the post, I listed a few of my favourite songs. Juicy was given the main event slot, of course!
