I let my tape rock, til my tape popped.

Truth be told, when this album dropped I was still in my Illmatic stupor. I was young, and even being from the hood, I thought songs like “Suicidal Thoughts” were just too dark. Regardless, I couldn’t escape Biggie fever. Every car that passed seemed to be playing it. Hot 9 played it all day. Every station from MTV to BET to BCAT (Brooklyn Public Access) ran the vids into the ground. At some point, I gave in. Thankfully I did because all the Easy Mo Bee tracks like “Everyday Struggle” & “Me & My Bitch” were nothing short of incredible. The more I studied his cadence and the nuances of his delivery, the more I realized how “special” he was. No one, and I mean NO ONE, sets a rhyme off better than Big. His opening bars are contagious: “It was all a dream..”, “Who the fuck is this…”, “When it comes to sex, I’m similar…”. In this category, he is unequivocally unrivaled. He was the king of simple sounding, yet deceptively complex rhyme schemes: ” My forte causes Caucasians to say”. On 1st listen, you may miss the alliteration. Point is, B.I.G. got busy! "Throw up some ice for the nicest emcee"

Eight year old suburban twins appear to be raising themselves in the absence of their parents. They both yearn for an escape, but from what? It soon becomes apparent ‘nobody and nothing is what it seems’.
