Album of the Day
Life After Death
The Notorious B.I.G. rose quickly to the top of East Coast hip-hop with a brilliant debut; unfortunately, Biggie's reign was brief - he was killed in 1997 just weeks before the release of his follow-up album, LIFE AFTER DEATH. Debuting at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, it was the first album to feature two back-to-back posthumous #1 singles - “Hypnotize” and “Mo Money Mo Problems” - and earned three Grammy nominations including Best Rap Album. The RIAA has awarded the collection a Diamond Certification for more than 5 million copies sold of the double-LP, and it was cited by Rolling Stone as one of the 500 greatest albums of all time. An 8-LP LIFE AFTER DEATH 25th ANNIVERSARY SUPER DELUXE BOXED SET arrives in June; you can pre-order it now at Rhino.com.
