Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)
This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.8/100, a mean average of 79.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.4.

Whenever I wonder what albums to put on in the car or at a hangout session with my friends, this is like the first album that comes to mind. It's a classic for a reason. The flow is unbeatable and the lyrics are good too. The production of the beats are good too. It's complex beats make this project something to come back to. This album has a lot going for it. Very little filler. You can tell Biggie put a lot of time and effort into this project.
Hip hop albums are way too long and some tightening of songs could do some good.
Dark and dramatic, Biggie's debut seems to me as genuine and passionate as his flow and attitude. The album is cohesive and powerful. Definitely worth a listen.
Big has the best cadence in hip hop. His flow is rightly praised. Nobody uses their voice as an instrument like Big does
I was not prepared for how great this was gonna be. It started off great, but the second half was even better.
Great album, but there are a few misses
Classic record!! A bit over-rated if you ask me but a very good album nonetheless.
Like many highly regarded hip-hop album, it's too long.
Classical hip hop album. This is one of the best works form BIG, i like most of the songs. The part with the slurp is not so good but it belongs to this album otherwise it were not so good. Sucidal Thoughts have a dark atmospehre and that give a really a strange feeling. But overall a great album don´t feel bad that i bought it i feel good that i have this music album.
In your life there are artists that really mark you. This is the case of Biggie, it is certainly one of my favorite 5 rappers of all time. Christopher Wallace, known as Biggie, is an incredible charismatic rapper, a former Brooklyn street dealer, of which I am absolutely a fan. In 1994 he released his first album "Ready to Die". And what else to say about this album except that it is for me one of the best rap record I have ever listened to (and yet I listened to a lot of hip-hop). In this record, he describes his life as a dealer by posing his incredible and atypical flow on extremely effective prods signed Puff Daddy (based mainly on good big samples). This album is also important because it takes position in the famous conflict (which it will cause his death) between the west coast and the east coast. Finally, the name of the 14th track of this album is enough to describe what I feel: "RESPECT".
Best track: "Suicidal Thoughts"
