Notorious BIG



Freakin awesome rapper. One of the greatest talents of his time. Proof that not all rap sucks. Not at all.

I've only heard Ready To Die and some tracks from Life After Death, but I'm pretty darn pleased. His best trait, IMO, is coming up with great hooks (Machine Gun Funk's beats are brilliant) and great storytelling.

Any fans here?

I think the "all rap sucks" title sucks!!!

Usually made by white men.

Judge it for what it is, and nothing else...

It's good music.

2Pac was the best rapper, that's all I have to say. The masterful Hit 'em Up was a scathing attack on former friend Notorious BIG, who is ok, but not up to 2Pac's standard.

i believe the fact that tupac appeared in the video for "the humpty dance" eliminates him from any contention for best rapper of all time.

Or, should that be, :rapon:



"Grab ya glocks when ya see Tupac
Call the cops when ya see Tupac
Who shot me but you punks didn't finish
Now ya 'bout to feel the wrath of a menace
Nigga I hit em up

Get out the way yo
Get out the way yo
Biggie smalls just got dropped"

*is a fan*

"How Do You Want It?" by Tupac is genius, but overall, I always liked Biggie better. Somehow his words just hypnotized me.

I hear Brenda's got a baby
But, Brenda's barely got a brain
A damn shame
Tha girl can hardly spell her name
(That's not our problem, that's up ta Brenda's family)
Well let me show ya how it affects tha whole community
Now Brenda never really knew her moms and her dad was a
junky
Went in death to his arms, it's sad
Cause I bet Brenda doesn't even know
Just cause your in tha ghetto doesn't mean ya can't grow
But oh, that's a thought, my own revelation
Do whatever it takes ta resist tha temptation
Brenda got herself a boyfriend
Her boyfriend was her cousin, now lets watch tha joy end
She tried to hide her pregnancy, from her family
Who didn't really care to see, or give a damn if she
Went out and had a church of kids
As long as when tha check came they got first dibs
Now Brendas belly is gettin bigger
But no one seems ta notice any change in her figure
She's 12 years old and she's having a baby
In love with tha molester, whos sexin her crazy
And yet she thinks that he'll be with her forever
And dreams of a world with tha two of them are together,
whatever
He left her and she had tha baby solo, she had it on tha
bathroom floor
And didn't know so, she didn't know, what ta throw away and
what ta keep
She wrapped tha baby up and threw him in tha trash heep
I guess she thought she'd get away
Wouldn't hear tha cries
She didn't realize
How much tha tha little baby had her eyes
Now tha babys in tha trash heep balling
Momma can't help her, but it hurts ta hear her calling
Brenda wants ta run away
Momma say, you makin' me lose pay, tha social workers here
everyday
Now Brenda's gotta make her own way
Can't go to her family, they won't let her stay
No money no babysitter, she couldn't keep a job
She tried ta sell crack, but end up getting robbed
So now what's next, there ain't nothin left ta sell
So she sees sex as a way of leavin hell
It's payin tha rent, so she really can't complain
Prostitute, found slain, and Brenda's her name, she's got a baby

Absolutely amazing...such a shame that he was killed

Well, I was going to launch into a Biggie vs 2Pac diatribe, but really now, does it even matter? Cause at the end of the day, Macho Man > (2Pac + Biggie). For realz, yo.
