These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Archive Panic: Averted. Unlike 2Pac, only two posthumous Biggie albums have been released - and one of them (Duets: The Final Chapter, AKAThe Biggie Duets) mainly consisted of remixes.
Awesome Music: There's a reason he's widely considered one of the best rappers of all time.
Ear Worm: Quite a few of his songs are very catchy. Good luck listening to "Hypnotize" without having "Biggie Biggie Biggie, can't you see?" ping-ponging in your head for days afterward. There's also "I love it when you call me Big Poppa! Throw your hands in the air, if you's a true player..."
Fandom Rivalry: Notorious B.I.G. fans VS 2Pac fans, not really because of their music, but their real-life rivalry.
First Installment Wins: While his second and final album Life After Death is a classic, his debut Ready to Die is widely considered the superior album.
"Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Well... first of all, his song "Juicy" contains the line "Blow up like the World Trade", which needless to say takes on a second meaning today - he was actually referring to the previous attack on the towers. (Needless to say, in Jay-Z's tribute "A Dream" on his Blueprint 2 album, the sample of "Juicy" blanks that line out.) And then he was gunned down in Los Angeles. Not only was his only album released during his life titled Ready to Die, his second album, released posthumously, was titled Life After Death, and the cover art consists of him standing next to a hearse. And if that wasn't enough, the album also contains the songs "Going Back to Cali" and "You're Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You)". "Funny Aneurysm" Moment and Too Soon all in one go.
He's Just Hiding: Along with 2Pac, some people believe that he's still alive and in hiding somewhere, although the idea of a 6' 3'' 300-400lb man managing to fake his death without anyone recognizing him is highly doubtful. Though if he lost the weight...
"Suicidal Thoughts", probably one of the most accurate (and chilling) looks into a suicidal mind in music.
Unintentional Period Piece: Many of his songs are chock full of references to then-contemporary things like pagers and tape players. But the most notable example is probably "Juicy", in which Biggie boasts that he's now wealthy enough to afford the latest and greatest entertainment technology. Namely, "Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis / When I was dead broke, man, I couldn't picture this!".
