I am a sinner.

Every year at TeamXbox I would create a thread on the day Big died, March 9th. Well, here wee are again. Big was a major influence on me and the reason I got into DJing. I was always a fan of rap and hip hop, but, when I heard Big for the first time, it was different. I sat there and listened to Ready to Die for hours straight that first day. I was seeing everything he was rapping about right in front of me. It was like watching a movie. Since that first day I was a fan for life.
The day he died was one I'll never forget. I was asleep in bed after being out DJing the night before. My mom had knocked on my door and said, "That rapper guy you liked, Biggie, he was killed last night." I thought she had to be lying. I hopped on AOL and immediately began to cry. It was a kick to the stomach. It was awful. I just couldn't believe it. It just downright sucked.
Well, it's been 17 years since Big died and I still listen to his music getting the same feelings I did the first time I heard each track. The music world lost one of its great talents on the day of Big's death. Losing Pac and Big within a year was devastating to the hip hop world it it has never been the same.
There will only be one Big.....
My favorite Big track of all time.....
