The Notorious B.I.G. "Rap Phenomenon" (Mixtape, 2002)


The first of two "Rap Phenomenon" mixes, honoring hip-hop legends back in '02-03. This is obviously The Notorious B.I.G., and the second installment is 2Pac. Both are timeless, classic mix tapes. Dirty Harry has always been one of my favorite DJs; his blends were always on-point - he linked with DJ Vlad, then known as the Butcher and now a media mogul in his own right with VladTV. There's not much to say here, it's one of the best Biggie mixtapes you can listen to, leaning more towards blends and rare content, as opposed to Mister Cee, who probably has the definitive Biggie mixtape running through his whole catalog. Give it a listen below. Rest In Peace, Biggie. (Updated: new audio link).
