Biggie's Debut Turns 20: Why "Ready to Die" Still Lives On

The views and opinions expressed herein are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of AllHipHop.com On Jay Z's 1997 cut, "Where I'm From," he asked, but never answered, "Who's the best MC - Biggie, Jay Z, or Nas?" Now, years later, with the benefit of hindsight, perhaps a fairer question would be, "Which is the best debut between their three - Ready to Die , Reasonable Doubt , or Illmatic ?" They are all classic albums which helped revitalize New York Hip-Hop after years of Left Coast dominance, and they have all earned their spots in Hip-Hop history. However, in the competitive sport of rap, one must reign supreme.
