ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!

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.
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:
I didn’t know that biggie was such serious business.
No joke! This is awesome. Tyler needs an anti-anxiety med or something.
No way, this is great and great fun.
Also, these two paired together + demented nutso homicidal fun
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.
Charlie the Choo Choo? Or Blaine the Mono?
Blaine is a pain.
It makes me miss Thomas more than Biggie. Still: C’mon. motherfuckers, c’mon!
One of the best mashups. Perfect.
West Coast Represent! *ducks*
We took a train-themed sketch show to the Edinburgh Fringe this year – this was the music we used to take our bows each night.
We’re on tonight, incidentally, at The Soho Theatre in London. 5* comedy. Boom.
I didn’t know I was a rap fan till I heard this!
Conductor has just pointed out that he used only 5 of the 7 words you are not allowed to say on TV!
The Notorious F.A.T Controller approves
