The Notorious B.I.G. – ‘Juicy’

I have a bit of a complicated relationship with hip-hop, but there’s something incredibly likable about ‘Juicy’. Part of it is the excellent sample of ‘Juicy Fruit’ by Mtume, but it’s Biggie Smalls’ lyrics and flow that sell it. Every syllable makes his rags to riches story seem not only believable, but deserved. It’s also full of fun rhymes and clever lyrics. I think my favourite has to go to “Super Nintendo Sega Genesis” purely on the delivery.
