Christopher Wallace, reconsidered

So, Peter Rosenberg posted the full four hour Mister Cee 10th anniversary Biggie Smalls mix. 

 

I have long said that Big was NOT the GOAT, and nothing that I heard in the past four hours persuaded me otherwise. 

 

What is without question, however…is that he was the most gifted.

    Man…I’m a NY girl. And if you had asked me the hip-hop head password of yesteryear “Pac or Big”, I would have said Big. But back then it was partly because I was living in Cleveland–where real hip-hop could go die and never be found so I felt an allegiance to something different and partly because I started every morning with a little Big for my Breakfast.

    Now, I am an older wiser hip hop fan and…you know what check the blog . I’ve just been inspired.

    C’mon you could make an argument for any number of emcees (KRS, Rakim, etc) about who was the GOAT. The question is…why would someone say BIG was the GOAT and quite simply its because the majority of BIG’s rhymes that you hear today were unwritten. I mean most of joints you just finished listening to. If that’s not greatness…do it. He’d sit down, get a beat, and start rhyming. He had the gift and in my opinion he used that gift to become the greatest.

    I’m a 86-91 hip hop junkie, this is the era I consider my favorite. I still think BIG was better than anyone from that era, before it and presently.

    R.I.P. B.I.G. – G.O.A.T.
