Next week, music fans will begin preparing to commemorate 25 years since the tragic loss of 24-year-old hip-hop icon The Notorious B.I.G. on March 9, 1997. His death was followed two weeks later by the release of the final album he worked on while alive, Life After Death, which went on to receive Diamond certification just three years later in 2000.

In an effort to honor both occasions, in addition to Biggie’s birthday on May 21, his estate has partnered with Bad Boy Records, Atlantic Records and Warner Music’s legacy offshoot Rhino Records to release the Life After Death 25th Anniversary Super Deluxe Boxed Set this summer in an effort to continue his would-be 50th b’day celebration for the entire duration of 2022.
