Ready To Die (The O.G. Edition)

Ready To Die

The Mixtape Marvel is back with another collectors edition mix. Ready to Die: The O.G. Edition is a must-own for fans of hip-hops legend, Biggie Smalls. The 1994 debut album from the Brooklyn rapper is considered a classic not only in rap, but in all of music. The ‘O.G. Edition’ gives you the album in it’s ORIGINAL, UNCENSORED form… and even tosses in a few NEVER BEFORE HEARD gems including an unreleased freestyle B.I.G. recorded for Pepsi. Experience the album the way Biggie wanted you to, before sample clearances and label executives got in the way.

Many thought this material was long lost, never to be heard again…but the Mixtape Marvel delivers! Highlights on the CD include DJ Premier’s version of “Machine Gun Funk”, the original version of “Me & My bi*ch”, the unheard original version of “Whatchu Want” and an entirely shocking version of “The What” featuring 2 never before heard verses from the Notorious One. 5 NEVER BEFORE HEARD bonus tracks are also included at the end of the CD featuring demos and unreleased material including the 1991 recording “Biggie Got The Hype sh*t”, which was thought to be lost in a fire and never to see the light of day. Rejoice Biggie fans… this is your must have edition of ‘Ready to Die’.
