90s Jams #69: The Notorious B.I.G. "Mo Money Mo Problems" (1997)

Biggy projected a wide range on both of his official albums. The dark tracks were fucking DARK (like "Suicidal Thoughts"), but when Biggy sang about "Party And Bullshit," it was nothing short of Andrew WK screaming "Party Til You Puke" into a distorted microphone. "Mo Money Mo Problems" was the party anthem Biggy was meant to deliver, and the one that finally made him the biggest MC in the world (albeit posthumously). It's still played on Top 40 stations for a reason.. Along with what now is certainly known as the most popular production beat Puff Daddy ever laid to tape, both he and Ma$e wisely avoided embarrassment by playing it cool and laying low, allowing Big's monster final verse to carry this one into the stratosphere.

WTF this video is classic as shit, and yet there are ZERO decent quality uploads of this on Youtube???? Shit is wack...
