Today marks 19 years since one of the rap game all time greats The Notorious B.I.G. untimely death. On this day every year fans, artists and deejays show their appreciation for what B.I.G did for the game. Trust me you can always find a B.I.G mashup or mixtape because he was one of the dopest lyricist and his music has stood the test of time.
The latest Biggie mash-up comes from MICK and Chi Duly. The duo pay their respects to the legend by pairing Biggie’s vocals over some of Metro Boomin’s latest productions on a project they call Ready to Boom. Mick and Chi Duly took it a step further by also honoring the original artwork by adding Metro’s hair and MICK’s seven-month-old son Myles’ face onto the original baby’s body.
In a tweet, MICK simply stated that “Biggie over Metro Boomin was a great idea that needed to be done,” and we couldn’t agree more. There was no question of how versatile Biggie’s delivery was, but hearing tracks like “Juicy” over “Waves” and “Where Brooklyn At” over “Where Ya At” makes that fact far more apparent.
Listen to the full Ready to Boom project below, as they pay homage.
