I think about this and wonder how pac and big would’ve been viewed today and what kind of music they would make like would they change their style up to make more commercial hits or stay true to who they are

hip hop fans are fickle asf tho so I’m sure there would’ve been n*ggas talkin bout how big and pac fell off

Biggie would have been working with more producers...

I could picture Big k*lling features and rapping on some Mannie Fresh and Timbaland.

Jay-Z would have been Cease status

he might be on Love and Hip Hop.
he might have 15 albums.
he might be acting.
he might be a disgruntled old head, he might not be.

Slapped cause he’s not top 3.

That being said, had he not died, billionaire hov still goes on to be the best rapper from Brooklyn and second best ever right behind Nas

Biggie was nice but jigga was especially nice and lyrically superior once he hit his groove in rap

Only casuals not from NY will disagree with me

Truth hurts...Get over it

Jay is only around due to the death Biggie and Pac.

If he was here, he would be Cease status. Biggie wasn't giving up his spot that easily.

PAC would have also been on his heals as well.

If Big was the Sun. Puff, lil Kim , DBlock,Made,112 etc are all planets that revolved around him. He would have been the first to have his own label. Everyone was signed to him at first. The. Puff got the check to start Bad boy.

I'm talking about Reasonable Doubt...

Summer 1996 had releases that overshadowed that.

Big dies in 1997

one year before jigga put out vol 2

vol 2 was going to elevate him regardless of whether big was alive or not

Yup. U had Pac, Redman, Nas, Mobb, and Kast putting out heat...

Mad Skillz' From Where is slept on as well. That should have came out at a another date.

It got overshadowed by Pac and the Fugees..

99 is a another good year, 97 was a sad year though

He was so ahead of his time and rapped so incredibly well. Man hell yeah people would still praise and love him the way they did when he was here. He was just too damn good.

He would’ve fell off eventually but would’ve still been an icon. All the legends have their run with the NYC crown. Minus Hov of course, who has the cheat code apparently lol

If Biggie didn't get shot and instead just fell off after his first 2 albums, would be be as revered as he is now?

A lot of other artists have come along over the years and had a hot 5 year window and then fell off and their legacy fades away. Those 2-3 hot albums just get stuck in time.

We're only human though and when a celebrity dies in their prime, they naturally tend to carry this aura.

Biggie is top 3 of all time for me, so i'm no casual fan.
But I wonder if he just fell off instead if people would still consider him a GOAT and how much has passing away added to people liking his music more?

n*ggas still praise all them 80s rappers so yeah, after 2 albums that better than 99 percent of rappers discographies, yeah he'd still be a goat. Look at how 50, Em, and Snoop are treated. And honestly, Nas never topped Illmatic to most people and his disco is kinda lackluster after that to most people and he's still a goat.
IWW is better than illmatic
