5 Biggie Songs To Celebrate His Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Nomination [VIDEOS]

October 15, 2019

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees have been announced and it, unsurprisingly, is loaded with talent.  The pool includes Pat Benatar, Dave Matthews Band, Biggie, Whitney Houston, Judas Priest, Depeche Mode, Doobie Brothers, Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan and more.

The inclusion of pop or hip hop acts always gets rock fans all fired up.  I get where they’re coming from in the sense that I assume baseball fans wouldn’t take too kindly to Michael Jordan being inducted to Cooperstown.  But either way I think it’s good for the Rock Hall to be inclusive for many different reasons.  The biggest reason being capitalism, obviously.  It attracts a wider audience of visitors to the HOF.  It’s also good press.  It has a casual rock listener like me writing about it, right?  With that said, the genesis for this blog is the name that got me most excited on the list – Notorious BIG. 

Whether he gets in or not isn’t crazy important to me, I’m just excited that they thought of him.  With that said, here are 5 of my favorite Biggie songs to help you get through your Tuesday.  Enjoy!
