For us, the greatest, the only one-est, the biggest, Notorious Big. See the Netflix documentary Biggie: I got a story to tell and allow him to lace these lyrical douches in your bushes. The documentary is good. It fills us with sadness and joy, memories and longing. We will never forget when we first heard Ready to Die and Biggie Smalls took us in singular storytelling from the heartbeat of life to the flat line of death. We will never forget the day the newspaper announced his death on Monday, March 10th, 1997. It was the day after he was shot in a pre-internet world, and the paper was still the first and only one to make announcements. We believed De Volkskrant was finally writing about rap to find out the Biggest was finished.
