Biggie’s ‘Ready To Die’ Helped Nba Star Zion Williamson Overcome Adversity

Biggie may have died in 1997, however, his music still inspires people of today, like NBA player Zion Williamson who has found an inspiration source for his career in “Ready To Die.

In the New Orleans Pelicans media day on Monday (September 26), Zion appeared noticeably slimmer. This led journalists to inquire about what it was that made him undergo such a dramatic transformation. According to Zion’s star forward The Notorious B.I.G.’s appearance helped him deal with the issues he’d faced over the past few years.

“I’ve come to appreciate the process of learning,” Zion said of his journey. “I am unable to explain it in all the challenges and all the pitfalls however for me, The Notorious B.I.G album, Ready To Die, that album’s lyrics, how he spoke about stress and the issues he was facing simply feeling the weight of the world upon your shoulders, and feeling as if you’re standing on your own the album helped me change my thinking and finding real determination within playing.”

He also said: “I’m 22. I’ve experienced many things in the last year and have seen some shifts. There were things that you couldn’t have wished occurred, but from the album, you discover that’s the way of life.”

Zion Williamson was drafted by the Pelicans as the number. one pick in a class which included the future NBA key players such as Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant and New York Knicks forward RJ Barret.

In his debut season, Zion tore his meniscus in the preseason, but he returned 3 months after in a stunning fashion, earning all-rookie accolades like being selected as a member of the NBA All-Rookie First Team.

The remarkable run continued in the next season and earned an invitation to the All-Star team. However, the situation would turn sour in the offseason, when he was struck by a Jones fracture on the right side of his foot.

Zion was undergoing surgery to fix the fracture but went through a series of controversies throughout the next season. It reached the point that some critics started noticing Zion gained weight over his already huge frame and began to wonder whether there was any friction between him, his team, and the doctors.

The notions were quashed by the time Zion signed a five-year rookie contract extension together with the New Orleans Pelicans worth $193 million, which was guaranteed for July 2022. With his new style and the coming NBA season, the eyes will be on the athlete born in North Carolina.

The Notorious B.I.G’s legacy lives through more than the playlists of athletes. He has officially entered the realm of metaphysics by releasing his latest Sky’s The Limit NFT collection that was first revealed through The Christopher Wallace Estate back in March.

The NFT collection was released in July and was created in collaboration with one of the Web3 companies run by Quincy Jones.

The primary theme of the collection is the 3D characters based on The Notorious B.I.G.’s style and lyrics. Anyone who purchases one from the figurines on digital will be granted the right to license audio from the famous 1989 freestyle which a 17-year-old Biggie delivered at a corner located in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. The freestyle’s audio was previously unavailable to download or sample.
