biggie is tight, this is probably the only rap album I constantly listen to although to be fair i havent listened to the majority of classics in the genre, i.e. illmatic, 36 chambers (?) etc.

This album only scores a 3/5 from me. I don't know....there's a handful of great songs on it, but it's way too inconsistent, and at times, it's unlistenable.

I dig this album, but seriously, this ^ (well, before you took those words back)

"Wow, ok. I've never heard anyone that appreciates rap music say that this wasn't a definitive rap album. I would say it's quite consistant throughout cosidering there are 17 songs."

17 songs definitely does NOT make a record consistent. In fact, that's exactly the problem with this album, two much filler going on. This is a good album, and it played an undoubted role in the genres evolution, but calling it the definitive rap album seems to be a cliche of every hip-hop fan. As soon as a fan says otherwise, they get called untrue for it...this is still easily open to criticism like anything else, is all I'm saying.

"17 songs definitely does NOT make a record consistent."

he didnt say it was consistent because of the 17 songs, he said it was consistent in spite of its 17 songs

basically that it was surprisingly consistent considering it has 17 songs (which it is imo)

Has anyone heard the new version? Like, the one on iTunes? I really want to get this, but it says that some samples were removed from the CD (like the Parliament sample on "Machine Gun Funk") because of copyright issues. Does this have any significant impact on the quality of the CD, or am I cool just getting the iTunes version?

Listening to "The What" makes me wish that Meth & Big had made an entire album together.

the best hip hop album ever, but Pac was the better rapper hands down in my opinion, but they are neck to neck Big was more lyrical and you felt everything Pac said R.I.P Pac & Big rap is now crap now that you all are not here you are truly missed.

^....That's an awful reason. How about you base your rating on the album?

Biggie is a serious rapper. Who cares who he was associated with. Even though I do despise Diddy being in nearly every song, it was only because he wanted to soak in Biggie's glory.

this is an unquestionably, undebatable classic album in hip-hop. Top 5; no matter who you are asking.
