In honor of Biggie’s passing 15 years ago, DJ/Producer Terry Urban coked up a special concoction. Urban wanted merge music styles and bridge audiences together in new ways.
He set out to merge cultures by mixing Lana Del Rey and Notorious B.I.G. The final product was Born Ready To Die. The music from Lana’s Born To Die album remixed and resampled with Biggie’s timeless lyrics from Ready To Die.
According to Urban, “It’s a perfect marriage… dark and mysterious… soulful and gritty.” In an interview with Vogue, Lana stated that Biggie Smalls was one of her biggest musical influences.
This full album appears to draw inspiration from Danger Mouse’s acclaimed Beatles/Jay-Z mega mashup titled The Grey Album.
Note: Biggie’s lyrics are unedited and likely not safe for work.
