March 9th, 1997 was a sad day in the world of hip-hop. Whether you knew him as Christopher Wallace, Frank White, or Biggie Smalls, the Notorious B.I.G was one of Brooklyn’s finest and an instrumental force behind the East Coast sound during the bitter rivalries of the 90’s. Although he’s not with us anymore, his signature smooth laid back flow will live on for ages through the music of fans around the world.
In tribute to the late emcee, Dutch producer James McDurt has given us The Brooklyn Way, a nine track FreEP that encapsulates some of the best tracks from the late rapper’s catalog. Head nodding beats that blend beautifully with Biggie’s larger than life rhymes, for a project that proves that music truly has no borders. Spend your day with Biggie and McDurt.. and if you don’t know, now you know.
The Brooklyn Way is available for free download at SoundCloud.com.
