The latest music and more with Note Noted
It’s kills me that one of the best rappers is no longer around, no longer gracing us with amazing lyrics blended over hot beats. Notorious B.I.G. died 15 years ago on March 9th. Terry Urban felt that we needed some more Notorious in our ears and I’m down 1000%. Yes, it’s another Biggie mashup but this one is o so different. You’ve got Notorious Biggie and the notorious pop star. Some would say Biggie would be rolling in his grave hearing this but I dont think so. If he was alive today I could very much see him teaming up with her to make some notorious underground indie hip-hop.
“The music from Lana’s Born To Die… remixed and resampled. The lyrics from Biggie’s Ready To Die… still timeless after all these years. It’s a perfect marriage… dark and mysterious… soulful and gritty. Lana told Vogue Magazine that Biggie was one of her biggest musical influences… and now… he is her musical collaborator. I present to you… Born Ready To Die.”
