These 3 songs Ruin Biggie's Life after Death.

For me its a near classic. i obviously dont have to point out the timeless hip hop classics on LAD. but im just curious, anyone actually bump or like Another, Nasty Boy or Playa Hater? it pisses me off how they ruin it. Them songs are 100% bullshit and ruin the album. if they arent on there its a 5/5 album..

I get the feeling that biggie woulda fallen off thanks to puffy. i can't remember where i read it, but Biggie was pissed at puffy for making him switch his style up for the album in the first place. its no coincidence that them 3 songs are all produced by Diddy. He shoulda stuck with Easy Mo Bee for main part of production on LAD.

Just to make this a positive thread, Appreciate this classic from LAD.

    Its a double CD, with 24 songs on it, so its hard to believe 2 songs stop it from being considered classic. The nigga only got a handful of songs be grateful.

    Nasty Boy is a cool single type of track.

    Intro to that track is classic "so after I shit on the bitch" lmao.

    The skits attached to the songs (so that the damn song doesn't start until 1 minute into the track) actually hurt more than any individual song did.


    I can't rock Kick In The Door like I want to because they put that wack ass skit right before it, same with Sky Is The Limit

    The only song I skip is Another. Nasty Boy and Player Hater were dope IMO.

    I agree about "Another." Its like the "Whatz Ya Phone #" of Life After Death.

    I'd say the same for Playa Hater. Drunken karaoke. Especially Puff's part gettin off at the end. Doesn't hurt if everyone else in the room is just as fuckin drunk as you are.

    BIG proved himself on every verse in every song, through and through. So a random track with him wittingly singing horribly offkey about some gutta shit doesn't hurt the album's credibility, just adds to its entertainment value.

    T/S need to just kill himself.
  • mryounggunmryounggun Posts: 10,608 ✭✭✭✭✭
    The only issue is the T/S's use of 'ruin'. That means it was dope and those joints made it shitty. Still an amazing album. Just isn't perfect. What album is?

    But yeah, I don't rock with them joints.

    I still feel its an amazing album, its just them songs ruin it from being a classic, not necessarily make it a bad album. if those 3 arent on LAD its a 5/5 album.

    still better than 90% whats released today. unfortunatly.

    and its not the best hip hop double album. Wu Tang Forever is better than LAD.

    haha im still a biggie fan, he's top 5.

    "Another" gets skipped regularly. Nasty Boy is tolerable & I can fuck w/ Playa Hata. But yeah I remember in the March 03 XXL (The Making of LAD) & the Bigger Than Life documentary Easy Mo Bee said that when they 1st started recording LAD BIG wasn't feeling it b/c Puff wanted LAD to be more radio friendly than RTD, but BIG wanted to do hardcore/ganster shit.

    Makes me wonder if BIG had lived would Puff's influence have killed his artistic spirit & resulted in mediocre music from him. At the same time his biggest hits: One More Chance (Remix), Big Poppa, Juicy, etc were in part b/c of Puff's old school/soul sample driven sound. If BIG had gotten away from Puff/BadBoy and changed his style would it have been felt the same? Damn shame we'll never know.
