Notorious B.I.G., "Suicidal Thoughts"

B.I.G.'s debut, Ready to Die, leads up to a final gunshot and fading heartbeat on the album's last track, "Suicidal Thoughts," in which the Notorious One dismisses a call from Puff as he lambastes himself for stealing from his mom, cheating on his girl, and smoking too much of the buddha over a Lord Finesse beat. We can feel how tormenting such depression can be in how he describes the most basic mother-son interaction: "Sucking on her chest just to stop my f---ing hunger." (Photo: Ron Galella, Ltd./WireImage)
