This week marked the 41st birthday of the one and only Notorious B.I.G., and to celebrate we thought it was only right to include his most famous song, Juicy. A track that includes one of the most instantly recognizable first lines in hip-hop history, ‘It was all a dream…”, Juicy contains everything that made Biggie one of the greatest rappers to ever live: deceptively complex lyricism and a relaxed yet always-on-point flow. And of course there’s that beat. Built around a sample of MTume’s Juicy Fruit by producers Poke & Tone, (aka Trackmasters), Juicy’s production might sound too light in the hands of a lesser emcee, but contrasted with Biggie’s gritty vocals it works perfectly. Now this is the definition of a classic. Celebrate the one and only Biggie Small’s birthday by pressing play on Juicy, digging up your copy of Ready to Die, and letting us know your favorite Biggie song of all-time in the comments below.
