The right song can fan the flames; the wrong one can put them out. Replace hackneyed selections with these fresher, more seductive incarnations. PLAY THIS: John Legend, Once Again
Written by Ben Pogany The Notorious BIG- Ready to Die -(1994) Around the years '87-'88, a young crack dealer named Christopher Wallace began entertaining local passersby by rapping into a beat-up amp on the street corners around Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Six years later, he was the biggest rapper in the world. Three years after that, he was dead. During the short flash that was his career, only one album was to be released, a top-to-bottom classic with the eerily prophetic title 'Ready to Die'.
