The Notorious B.I.G. Life After Death 20th Anniversary Mixtape

    This mix was made to mark the 20th anniversary of the Notorious B.I.G.’s second and final album Life After Death. The album was released posthumously on Bad Boy Records on March 25, 1997, just sixteen days after the drive-by shooting that led to his tragic death on March 9 that year. It features truly classic hip-hop joints such as “Hypnotize” and “Mo Money Mo Problems,” as well as guest appearances from Jay Z, Lil’ Kim, Mase, R. Kelly, and more.

    To mark Life After Death’s anniversary, our buddy DJ Matman dug deep and expertly crafted this fine mixtape featuring album tracks, alternate versions and remixes, and original sample material from the likes of Zapp, Screaming’ jay Hawkins, Al Green, and Barbara Mason, amongst others.

    Listen up and pour some out for Biggie!
