Birthdays Was The Worst Days/Now We Sip Champagne When We Thirsty/Damn Right I Like The Life I Live/Cuz I Went From Negative To Positive. -Notorious B.I.G.
“Juicy” is one of my most favorite Biggie songs. Today, he would have been 42. I can’t help but wonder what hip hop would be like if he were alive now. Would he have songs with Rick Ross or Drake? J. Cole or Kendrick Lamar? I will just have to let my imagination run wild.
Regardless, he made his mark during the short time he had on this earth, in music and of course, in hip hop. I’m having difficulty remembering how old I was when I heard my first Biggie song and what that track was. Here’s a little trivia, anyone out there know the sample (another great song!) he used for Juicy…? Drumroll please… – Juicy Fruit by Mtume.
Happy Birthday, Biggie!
