Today marks the 15 year anniversary of the death what many consider to be the greatest rapper of all time, The Notorious B.I.G. so Cody and I have decided to do a special Throwback Friday, with both of our favorite Biggie songs.
Mean Jean’s Pick: “Notorious Thugs” (ft. Bone Thugs & Harmony)
My pick is off the DIAMOND, that’s 10 million sold kiddies, Life After Death, which was the first album released after Biggie’s death. The minute and fifteen second build to this song is so dope, “It’s Bone & Biggie Biggie…. Let’s ride, let’s ride, let’s ride,” There really isn’t anything not to like about this song, even though he had already passed, B.I.G. was at his best, and Bone Thugs were also at their peak. Enjoy this Biggie CLASSIC!
Thee Cody Taylor’s Pick: “Big Poppa”
I’m picking this song because of the way it was used in Super Bad. When I first watched the movie, I immediately recognized the song when he’s slow dancing with the girl at the party and she leaks on him, LOL. The song definitely fit the scene.
