The Notorious B.I.G. became one of the greatest rappers alive with his verse on Puff Daddy’s “Young G’s,” according to Pusha T.
“Ready To Die came out and B.I.G. was great,” he said. “He was great, but it was still an argument. And this verse silenced the argument for me.” Pusha says there are a number of factors that made the guest appearance on 1997’s No Way Out untouchable. “It’s master-level flows, it’s story-telling — introducing melodies that weren’t super sing-songy, but it just gave the verse dimension,” he said.
Pusha goes on to explain the importance Biggie had in his life.
“The arguable classic album that people say I have with my brother, which is Hell Hath No Fury, I mimic B.I.G. the whole way through it. I mimic B.I.G. 100%,” he said. “Inflections, flows, any which way I felt. ‘What would big do?’ was the question.”
