Rating metrics: 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 artists can have several thousand ratings)

This artist is rated in the top 20% of all artists on BestEverAlbums.com. This artist has a Bayesian average rating of 76.3/100, a mean average of 75.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.6/100. The standard deviation for this artist is 20.4.

Short but sweet discography. His two albums, along with Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt, are the three big ones of the late 90s. I'm pretty sure had he not died, he would definitely have been a defining rapper of the 2000s like Jay.

Most rappers are defined by their beats (Kanye West) their flow and delivery (Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony) or their lyrics (Lupe Fiasco). Biggie's music covers all three - he doesn't produce, but he's fortunate to get to work with guys like the Bluez Brothers and DJ Premier. And on top of that, every one of his tracks contains thought-provoking lyrics delivered masterfully. Everything is covered. And this is no easy feat, it's pretty difficult to think of another hip hop artist whose body of work is this perfect.

Best flow of any hip-hop artist. His lyrics are at times cutting genius, but at other times a little cliche. I'd put him on par with Tupac: Great, but inconsistent.

I dont like how this sight underrates Hip Hop artists. Biggy is definitely in the top 100 all time. Ready to Die is a masterpiece and deserves to be higher than 260.
