Welcome to Episode #14 of the 90s State of Mind podcast - a collaborative project between 4ever in Electric Dreams and Blue-in-Green:RADIO. This podcast series sees Imran (London, UK) and Rhonda (California, USA) delve into some of their favourite releases from the 90s and for this episode, the pair celebrate the sophomore studio album from the late, great Notorious BIG, 'Life After Death'.
Released 25th March 1997 through Bad Boy Records, the album would see its release 16 days after Biggie's murder and would go on to be nominated for three Grammies and be certified Platinum in the US eleven times. Spearheaded by the singles 'Hypnotize', 'Mo Money Mo Problems' and 'Sky's The Limit', the album would also be cited in several leading publications from Rolling Stone, The Face, Q and The Source as one of the greatest albums of all time.
Imran & Rhonda delve deep into this definitive 90s hip-hop classic looking at the project, the singles, the collaborators, as well as the variations from 'Ready To Die' and the subsequent posthumous releases.
Blue-in-Green:RADIO is a London-based online internet radio station which celebrates 21st century soul, jazz, funk, Latin & hip-hop music.
