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.

Despite a massive roster of engineers, mixers, and producers, the Notorious soundtrack is a remarkable capsule synopsis of the legendary the Notorious B.I.G.'s career. Every big hit is here, be it "Juicy," "Hypnotize," or "Warning," and they're all left mercifully unfettered by unnecessary remixes or new vocal contributions. Also included are a few new, tasteful posthumous collaborations, like the Santogold-spiced "Brooklyn Go Hard." But it's the totally raw, utterly early-'90s New York street demos of "Microphone Murder" and "Gangster Raw" that blow this collection's value out of the water, and make it an essential part of B.I.G.'s bulletproof canon. ~ Kenneth Herzog
