The Best of Biggie Mixtape: ft. The Finisher Mister Cee w/ Live Band

On paper it might seem strange that Christopher Wallace put out "Party and Bullshit" in 1992 and had his own classic best of mixtape a mere three years later. But you don't listen to music on paper, and anyone who knows this tape (and everyone knows this tape) understands that it stands as a testament to the artistic singularity of the Notorious B.I.G., put together by the man who discovered him, the Strongest Finisher in the Game, the one man band who stood behind Kane, Mister Cee. The tape begins with the "black rhinoceros of rap" completely and totally disemboweling a Casual beat on the "Freestyle Live At Mister Cee's Crib" and Cee (and Biggie) never let up from there stitching together guest verses and freestyles with the artist's own classics. Cee drops in just enough of the Hot 97 staple crossover mega-hits to remind you that the artist dominated ALL aspects of the airwaves- he had verses that were traded and repeated and debated by the KCR and Harlem Music Hut purists while simultaneously becoming a pop superstar, a feat that has been accomplished by only a handful of MC's across time, all of whom deserve endless superlatives next to their names. We at Livendirect invite you to join the legendary DJ Mister Cee for one night only as he playas cuts from this mixtape classic backed by live musicians as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the life, legacy and music of one of the best to ever do it.
