Ready to Dance, LP
Frank White meets Frankie Knuckles
Ready to Dance celebrates the shared history of Hip-Hop and House music. By reimagining the music of Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G” Wallace in a new light, Ready to Dance brings together two genres that introduced generations of marginalized Black youth to new art forms, as both creators, performers, listeners, and dancers.
The first single “Big Poppa” - a future house flip of a classic - proves you don’t need lyrics to remember legendary songwriting. Executive produced by CJ Wallace and Willie Mack of Think BIG and Jonathan Hay of R.U.S.H. Music, Ready to Dance is a love letter to all the Black, LGBTQ artists, promoters, and DJs who, against all odds, fought to bring their music, events, and art to the world.
