Spun: The Notorious B.I.G.

By Logan Niehaus

The music of Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur has influenced a generation and paved the way for a booming rap industry. Unfortunately, those around them have found it essential to make money off their tragic deaths through endless remix, unreleased and tribute albums only focused on cashing in. Duets: The Final Chapter bucks this trend.

P. Diddy, Diddy or whatever the hell he is calling himself these days has actually put some work into this project. With a wide array of high profile artists including Eminem, Nas and Ludacris to name a few, the album offers up more than enough B.I.G. material and works quite well with today’s select powerhouses

Powerful, well planned and overall a descent album, the crew at Bad Boy records must have been doing something right when they came up with this. If you’re a fan, the album is definitely worthwhile and it takes a much needed step in the proper direction for tribute albums.
