17 years ago today, they snatched him away from us. Biggie Smalls: the millionaire, the mansion, the yacht. He deserves every ounce of praise the world heaped on him before and after his passing. Today is sad fucking day. There's no way around it.
But we can celebrate his life. Better yet, we can celebrate what many don't remember - his guest verses. Classic albums? Yeah yeah, we popped those tapes. This is another dimension. These are Ron G Tapes, Funkmaster Flex exclusives, insane remixes, rare freestyles (psyche! Nothing on YouTube is "rare"), raucous posse cuts, all that.
These are the 25 Greatest Guest Verses by The Notorious B.I.G. We miss you. -- Max Weinstein
