The Smoking Section (Masthead) Respect Our Fresh!


Let me just say...I really forgot how raw Big was.

Forgive me.

So I had to go back and listen to Life After Death for the past four days.

Even with Puff watering him down w/some beats that are mediocore at times, Big still shined.

Big could craft songs that worked on different levels.

Clubs? Check

Streets? Check

Ladies, fellas, average listener to the hip-hop enthusiasts? Check, check, check and check.

Honestly, the only other person who's been able to do that in recent years besides Big...Jay-z.

But, Big laid the blueprint.

Pac did it as well, but had an added dimensions when he mixed in emotion, activism and introspection.

But Big....Big's wordplay and lyricism > Pac's.

Yeah, I said.

It's apple and oranges.

I'm the quintessential Pac fan of course so don't start whining.
