A lot of amazing tracks on this album, but for some reason Warning is the one that has stuck with me the most, and pretty much the only one I still come back to, since its never on the radio or playing at the bar. How something so over the top can still feel authentic is quite a feat, comparing Rick Ross's "acting" to Biggie's, there's no competition. When Biggie says, "There's gonna be a lot of slow singing, and flower bringing, if my burglar alarm starts ringing" you fully believe it.

Yeah this is a classic, right up there with Illmatic and 36 Chambers.

The whole thing's great but my favourite moments would be Gimme The Loot and Respect.

Biggie had the smoothest flow... I compare him to Tupac - immensely talented, supported by gifted producers, and strong flow. Sometimes their lyrics are pure poetry, sometimes its misogynistic cliched crap. It's too bad they were both cocksure morons who couldn't turn away from the thug life.

Biggie's so much more talented than 'pac and shouldn't be uttered in the same breath. And yeah this album is a masterpiece of hip-hop. The combination of talking bout how rich and successful he is and then talking about his 'suicidal thoughts' is pitch perfect contrast.

Meh... Biggie is more talented than 2pac, but they did employ similar patterns to their careers. I wouldn't say that 2pac isn't in Biggie's league, he's just not quite to his standard.
