Rare Joints from the Notorious Biggie Smalls

Alright, first up is this joint off of Tracey Lee’s debut 1997 album, Many Facez which featured a couple verses from the Notorious B.I.G.  Coincidentally The Buchanans flipped the same sample six years later for Jay-Z on What More Can I Say off The Black Album.

Keep Your Hands High – Tracey Lee Feat. Biggie Smalls

Next up is a personal favorite of mine which got much play on the old boombox, taken from Funkmaster Flex’s 60 Minutes of Funk Volume 2.  This one if you’ve never heard it is a must-have, featuring The Lox & Biggie over RZA‘s classic C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Rules Everything Around Me) instrumental.

Big was the shit on R & B jams too which is evident on this Jermaine Dupri & Da Brat heater for the Bad Boys Soundtrack in 95.  B-I-G glides effortlessly over that polished So So Def production like no other, plus the classic Gap Band sample ties it together oh so smoothly.

Da B-Side – Da Brat & Jermaine Dupri Feat. Notorious B.I.G.

What happened between 2pac and Biggie was truly a shakesperian-like tragedy, one time friends turned enemies over petty disputes and miscommunication.  Two icons that propelled each other to heights unseen in Hip-Hop before and probably will never be seen again.  Listening to the original version of Runnin (not Eminem’s 2003 remix) makes me wonder what a Pac/Big reunion would’ve sounded like in 2010.  “Nothing sadder in life than wasted talent”

Funny Vlog from Mr. Crustified Dibbs where he does his best Joe Budden impersonation, touches on how the music industry has Hip-Hop all fucked up, racist e-mails, Lil Wayne being over-rated and name dropping. 

Happy Mother’s Day

This just feels right, to all you Moms out there,  Happy Mother’s Day!  (from HHTT)
