To cap off B.I.G. day it's only right to hit you with the Ready To Die 12"s. There isn't much more that can be said about Christopher Wallace that hasn't been said already. He's one of the best to ever do it. Hip-Hop hasn't been the same since March 9th, 1997.

This isn't rare but it's dope as hell. This is Biggie freestyling in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn at the age of 17. I think (actually more guessing) that this is the battle scene that they tried recreating in the movie Notorious.
These are Volumes 1-4 of the Bad Boy mix tapes that came out in the mid 90's. This was the era when mixtapes were actually mixed on cassette tapes (I still can't use the term "Mix CD"). Before the internet was poppin, this was the place to get exclusive freestyles and all the newest Bad Boy records from BIGGIE, Craig Mack, The Lox, 112 and anything Bad Boy. They also had all the hottest records of the day, not just Bad Boy joints. Add to that they are hosted by Puff Daddy and mixed by the hottest DJs in NYC at the time and these are classics tapes.
