Christopher Wallace aka hip hop artist “Notorious B.I.G.”, as he was known on stage, was one of the central figures for the East Coast hip-hop uprising.

He devoted his career making a name for himself and making it. From his debut album “Ready to Die” to “Duets: The Final Chapter” his music has shown his struggle to fame as well as inspired many rappers in the hip-hop community. In the midst of his career he was cut short and yet still managed to be world renowned for his unique look and original lyrical style.

Now Fox Searchlight Productions are putting out a new motion picture entitled "Notorious" in theaters January 16.This is the soundtrack  it has some previously unreleased tracks, a couple demos; as well as a compilation of his hits from previous albums such as: "Born Again", Life after Death", "Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace” and “The Greatest Hits”. The CD is a definite must have for all Biggie fans. It, along with the movie, is a tribute to the man and everything he accomplished in his life.

The CD overall gets a score of 8.5/10 because I liked the whole thing especially the unreleased cuts however wish there could have been more. The man himself is a hip hop legend and deserves the tribute he’s getting with this movie. All of the songs are in fact classics and will be listened to by inspiring hip-hop artists for years to come.

The Movie is “Notorious” and is in theaters January 16 but the album is in stores today: check both of them out.

“And if ya didn’t know… Now you know.”
