Biggie had talent. Lots of talent. And I find it interesting that years later, amidst Biggie’s former contemporary Jay-Z watering down his sound and the slow and painful death of mainstream hip-hop, he still remains such a fascinating subject, both for his music and for the circumstances surrounding his life and death. The fact that everyone knows who he is and most anybody with a music collection will have at least some Biggie songs in there, regardless of what they think of hip-hop, make him truly a monument in the timeline of music’s history. K-Theory out of San Francisco takes on the massively loaded task of creating an original taking from Biggie’s work while still commanding the production, adding much more value than just a simple remix.
