The SoundCLASH presents Ready To Live, the New Orleans tribute of Hip-Hop icon The Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie, Biggie Smalls, or Big Poppa (Christopher Wallace). Although his time is the game was short his impact was B.I.G. Widely considered one of the best hip-hop artist of all-time, Wallace was described by Allmusic as "the savior of East Coast hip-hop". The Source named Wallace the greatest rapper of all time in 2001. In 2003, when XXL magazine asked several hip hop artists to list their five favorite MCs, Wallace's name appeared on more rappers' lists than anyone else. In 2006, MTV ranked him at No. 3 on their list of The Greatest MCs of All Time, calling him possibly "the most skillful ever on the mic". Editors of About.com ranked him No. 5 on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time (1987–2007). In 2012, The Source ranked him No. 3 on their list of the Top 50 Lyrical Leaders of all time. Rolling Stone has referred to him as the "greatest rapper that ever lived".
