Biggie is a legend in the music industry and is considering one of the best hip-hop artists of all time by many. BBC Music recently placed his song “Juicy” at the number one on their list of top 25 hip-hop songs of all time.
Biggie’s infamous track was released in 1994, as part of his debut album “Ready to Die.”
The list was compiled by polling more than 100 critics and experts, including A Tribe Called Quest, Common, and the Wu-Tang Clan. According to Common, he agrees with the number one placement.
“This song defines the American dream from any kid’s perspective. But Biggie is one of the greatest MCs to ever live,” Common told NME.
Rounding out the top three was Public Enemy’s 1989 song “Fight the Power,” following by Mobb Deep’s 1995 track “Shook Ones (Part II).” The only songs to make the list from 2010 or later were “All the Light” by Kanye West and “Alright” by Kendrick Lamar.
