CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic
His raps are easy to understand, but his skills are hardly lacking -- he has a loose, easy flow and a talent for piling multiple rhymes on top of one another in quick succession.

HipHopDX

Though Ready to Die is deeply-rooted in his uncaring attitude towards life and violence, Notorious B.I.G.‘s personable nature takes away from that Bad Boy image. That’s the reason so many emcees have tried in vain to reignite his ability to simultaneously hold the respect of their peers and a sway over the listening public.

Pitchfork

An unparalleled piece of rap history.

Rolling Stone

Ready to Die is the strongest solo rap debut since Ice Cube's Amerikkka's Most Wanted. From the breathtakingly visual moments of his birth to his Cobainesque end in "Suicidal Thoughts," B.I.G. proves a captivating listen.
