XXL’s Top 100 Biggie Bites

REAL DOPE ARTICLE! Shows how influentual Biggie truly was.

BITE ME (Rappers Stay Swagger-Jacking The Notorious B.I.G. Rhymes)

As much as Hip Hop is marked by constant innovation, it’s heavily reliant on borrowing. From samples to styles, the culture is entrenched in reinvention. So, too are certain rappers lyrics, which are regularly regurgitated by other MC’s. And no street scribe’s words have been bitten more frequently than The Notorious B.I.G.’s. B.I.G.-biting doesn’t discriminate. Artists from all walks of life and levels of success have done it: MC’s from Lil’ Wayne, Jay Z and 50 Cent to Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa and Beanie Sigel have mimicked Biggie’s verbal blueprint in their own rhymes. In Honor of the 15 years since The Notorious B.I.G.’s passing, XXL Put together a lite of the 100 Most-Bitten Biggie Lyrics of all time. Some lines are exact replicas deliberately paying homage, and some are slick tweaks and subtle acknowledgements of a job well done. But one thing they all share is the ability to keep Biggie Smalls’ memory and legacy alive – ADAM FLEISCHER
