(Video) Diddy Discusses Why Prince Wouldn’t Get On Biggie’s ‘Life After Death’

Life After Death was the ironically posthumous album after Big was killed in 1997. One huge feature would have made it even bigger if he had got on it…that person being Prince.

(Video) 17 Years Ago Today, Biggie’s ‘Life After Death’ Album Was Released

Some rappers make music, and others make classics that will continue to get played five years, ten years, twenty years, and so on after it has been put out. Notorious B.I.G. was one of those artists that made timeless tracks that will be played forever. Exactly 17 years ago today on March 25, 1997, Biggie’s second and final studio album entitled “Life After Death” was released just a few weeks after his fatal last day on March 9th. When thinking about a good definition for “hip-hop,” this simply legendary double-disc album is the perfect thing to define the genre of music as a whole. Christopher Wallace will continue to go down in history as one of the top dawgs to ever do this rap thing, making it on almost everyone’s “Top 5 Dead or Alive” lists. Check out REVOLT TV’s tribute to the influential rapper below. RIP Big.

(Video)Walking Dead?: New Jersey Woman Shows Up Alive After How Many Days?

This is bugged. So it turns out that a missing woman out in Jersey who was presumed dead is not after all. 50 year old Sharolyn Jackson was presumed dead a few weeks back and was buried by her family on August 3. But on August 16 she showed up at a mental institution alive, so then that leaves the question of who was exactly buried in her place??? Check out the video report after the jump.

(Photo) Scrapped Artwork Of The Notorious B.I.G.’s ‘Life After Death’

The Life After Death cover is art of hip hop history, but now we are seeing some artwork that didn’t make the cut of the front of Biggie Smalls’ album. Ebon Heath and Michele Thorne of NY design were in charge of creating the cover for The Notorious B.I.G.’s second and final album and said they had a bit of a hard time pleasing Diddy. In the end, the picture of Big next to the hearse at a graveyard is what won Diddy over but not before a few adjustments. The album would be released 16 days after the rapper’s tragic death. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m so use to seeing the cover, but I think they made the best choice. See the scrapped artwork and judge for yourself in the gallery.
