There's no denying Ready to Die is The Notorious B.I.G.'s best album, featuring some the most popular hits he would drop throughout his career—a career that ended all too soon. But while his career may have been short, Biggie proved he was one of the greatest rappers to ever be, and many of the songs from Ready to Die live on. The album turned gold shortly after its release in 1994, and went double platinum by 1995. In the time since, the album has gone quadruple platinum. Needless to say, it's one of the best albums of all time, as far as hip hop is concerned.

Of course, it's the individual tracks that made it such a great album. The best songs on Ready to Die, such as "Juicy" and "One More Chance", are seen as some of the greatest hip-hop songs of all time—carrying on Biggie's legacy. Those aren't the only hit tracks on the album, however. "Suicidal Thoughts" and "Things Done Changed" are just two of the numerous popular songs it boasts. In short, it's a great album from beginning to end.
