The Notorious B.I.G. vs. Tupac Shakur
Let’s continue the countdown with the two best rappers of the 1990’s, Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.
Great songs from 90’s: Keep Ya Head Up, Dear Mama, Changes
Tupac had so many big hits, and was the second best rapper during a time when rap music was probably in its prime. The day that Shakur was shot, and subsequently died six days later was a very sad day. I was only five years old, so I honestly don’t remember it happening, but little did people know, less than a year later, another amazing musician would be taken from this world way too soon.
3. The Notorious B.I.G.
Great songs from 90’s: Big Poppa, Juicy, Mo Money Mo Problems, Hypnotize
“Biggie Smalls” won two Billboard Music Awards, an MTV Video Music Award, and a Soul Train Music Award. On top of that, he also was nominated for four Grammy Awards. Aside from these accomplishments and accolades, the impact that he had on the rap music world was tremendous. He worked with Lil’ Kim and Junior M.A.F.I.A., and was the one who got Sean Combs’ (P. Diddy, Puff Daddy) career started. His murder is still unsolved, nearly 15 years later, but The Notorious B.I.G. is without a doubt the greatest rapper of the 1990’s.
Stay tuned for the revealing of the top two singers/bands of the 1990’s soon!
