Smalls sentimentalizes his crack-dealing youth on "Miss U," while "Ten Crack Commandments" provides a how-to guide for peddling cocaine. He promotes drug use (mainly marijuana and cocaine) throughout. Perverse sexuality is a recurring theme as well. Amid a strafing of obscenities, the artist talks of oral sex ("Another," "Goin' Back to Cali"), vicious group sex ("Kick in the Door," "The World Is Filled") and boasts of abusiveness ("F--- You Tonight"). Bloody gangsta violence flows from nearly a dozen cuts. "Niggas Bleed" says, "I saw her brains hit the floor . . . shot the chick in the breast/She cry-in', head shots put her to rest." The line, "baptize rap guys with the Holy Ghost" means blowing away rival musicians on "Long Kiss Goodnight." Vile from beginning to end.

Summary Advisory

Debuting at number 1, this posthumous double disc by B.I.G. (a.k.a. Biggie Smalls) sold nearly 700,000 copies its first week and more than 6 million overall. Life After Death provides a sleazy epitaph to his sad, depraved, squandered existence.
