Biggie Smalls the Tank Engine (Note: delectable language)

  1. Yeee-ahhh, boyee. That’s my kind of unicorn chaser. 

    I like these particular lyrics a bit better when paired with a less-elaborate beat that creates space for lines like “My flow…is remarkabowl…” Much of the beauty of Biggie’s delivery is rooted in his ability to “play the spaces,” as Miles would call it. It also stems, of course, from his masterful understanding and use of phonology. He can take the simplest and shortest of lines and make it a complex auditory experience with beginning, middle and end. 

    He also wrote from a uniquely honest and vulnerable perspective that’s very rare in hip-hop, even among underground artists. But I digress… I really appreciate Biggie’s talent and I wish we could have had a chance to hear his work mature. R.I.P. B.I.G.

    Anyway, this shit is bangin’ and it put a smile on my face. Thanks for posting it. Southeast Bernal represent lol.

  2. what does this add to big’s delivery? nothing. cheesy, lame idea totally at odds with the artist. he’d want to whack whoever made this if he heard it. some of the modern mashups of classic rap are pretty creative but this is just terrible, I think.

    it’s time to just let his catalog speak for itself. this is the notorious one, not that foolishness:

    1. The whole point of the mashup is to mix things not necessarily related into something that works. Which this does.

      I’m sure Biggie would piss himself laughing listening to this after a nice big phatty.
