The legacy of Christopher "Biggie Smalls" Wallace will become revived through a mixture of his greatest hits and unreleased music on the upcoming Notorious soundtrack.

Offering hip-hop fans a 17-track disc filled with a variety of popular songs including "One More Chance" and "Hypnotize," the compilation showcases music stemming from the rapper's first two albums Ready To Die and Life After Death to 2000's Born Again.

With appearances by Diddy, Lil' Kim, Too Short and Bone Thugs N Harmony, the project also features new material like Jadakiss's and Faith Evans' "Letter to B.I.G." along with Jay-Z and Santogold's "Brooklyn Go Hard."

As previously reported by SOHH, the CD will feature unreleased demo tracks from Biggie's earlier days before signing to Bad Boy Records.

"We kept everything as is, in its raw form," Notorious movie producer Wayne Barrow told Hollywood Insider. "This is what got him the deal, plain and simple. His fans have been asking for it for years."

Demos from the disc include "Guaranteed Raw," "Microphone Murderer" and "Love No Ho."
The Notorious soundtrack hits retail stores Tuesday, January 13.
