Synopsis

Product Description
Known to his family as Christopher Wallace, to his friends as Biggie, and
to his fans around the world as a legend, there can be no doubt that this Brooklyn rapper changed music forever. And now the epic tale of this one of a kind MC comes to the big screen. The Notorious Soundtrack, the companion piece to the highly anticipated motion picture, tells the story of the late, great B.I.G. the way he would- through rhymes and beats.
Filled with timeless classics like 'Juicy' and 'Hypnotize' plus new songs by
some of hip hop's biggest names AND never-before-released demos from the rapper's earliest days, this is a collection no hip hop fan should be without.
 

CD Reviews

The Poetry of B.I.G.
Mr. Richard D. Coreno | Berea, Ohio USA | 01/14/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sean Combs sheds the oftentimes awkward posthumous collaborations found on Born Again and Duets: The Final Chapter to present an intriguing collection of previously-released material and new tracks that honor the short life - but continuing legacy - of Christopher Wallace.

The most interesting are the previously unreleased demos Microphone Murder, Guaranteed Raw and Love No Ho, which close out the 17-song soundtrack. The two two original numbers - Brooklyn Go Hard (Jay-Z w/ Santogold) and Letter to B.I.G. (Jadakiss w/ Faith Evans) - are excellent and One More Chance (featuring Wallace's son, CJ) is a touching tribute.

A soundtrack is not a greatest hits package, but this collection is a stand-alone that can be appreciated for the music and/or as an integral part of the movie."
Perfect Collection

"The movie was outstanding, heads bopping and everyone knew every lyric and verse. The beat is enough to start anyone off. Just perfect, a perfect movie outing.

It made me want the music and here I am downloading it, it bring me back to that era, and at the same time, the music is still relevant.

If anything, the movie put BIG's music in better perspective as he rapped about a lot of the situations in his life and that fit seamlessly with the movie! I'm seeing it again on Friday!!"
