Ready to Die: Where Are They Now?

Nineteen years ago today (Sept. 13), the Notorious B.I.G. debut album, Ready to Die, hit shelves with timeless songs including "Warning," "Juicy" and "Big Poppa." Hip hop would never be the same. The album's delicate balance between the streets and the mainstream became rap's blueprint going forward, followed to the letter by Jay Z, Nas, Lil Wayne and many others. The hugely influential album launched several careers to new levels — from the performers to the producers. Others didn't fare so well. Here, BET.com takes a look at what happened to the players who helped make Ready to Die a masterpiece. —Alex Gale
