5 People That Did Songs With The Notorious B.I.G. But Never Blew Up ! [VIDEO]
As we celebrate the life of Notorious B.I.G. I can’t believe that it has been 15 years since the passing of Notorious B.I.G. if not the best rapper of all time, he is definitely mentionable in any real Hip Hop heads top 3 MC’s of all time. Any body who loves Hip Hop remembers where they were when they found out Biggie had been killed. There were a lot collaborations he did with people who never really blew up and have went missing in action since teaming up with B.I.G. Here we are going to revisit a couple of these forgotten careers.
A lot of people probably don’t even remember this track, but Jay-Z took the beat and made the more famous track “What More Can I Say” further putting Tracey Lee in rap’s forgotten memories.
Not a rapper, but this is one of the main stream R&B tracks Big made a guest appearance on and he RIPPED it. “Some Homies Say Im Ugly But Neneh Says Im Wicked”.
Red Hot Lover Tone
The remix of 4 my peeps was a classic to young Supreme who was just learning how to DJ at 13. I used to play this record all the time, but you might know Red Hot Lover Tone as another name Tone for the legendary production crew Tone and Poke. This is classic Biggie Smalls right here.
The Panther Soundtrack
I know most people probably don’t remember this soundtrack or movie. This one is a classic in my early DJing days, and the movie isn’t bad either its actually on Netflix. This track features Redman, Ill Al Skratch (Where My Homies) , Busta Rhymes, Bone Thugs N Harmony, and EVEN Coolio !!!! This is the BUSTA RHYMES I like not the YMCMB Busta.
Ed Lover and Dr. Dre
This is actually the first CD I ever got for my new cd player that I got for Christmas in the 8th grade !!! My Mom debated whether I should be able to listen to it because it had cursing on it. B.I.G. Now I’m not saying Ed Lover and Dr. Dre aren’t Hip Hop legends because they are but not legendary MC’s. No disrespect to either Dre or Ed Lover but delivered a classic verse on this which influenced my life and career to this day. R.I.P. to Christopher Notorious B.I.G. Wallace.
