Favorite song: “Notorious Thugs” f/ Bone Thugs-n-Harmony

Wiz Khalifa: “That was when I really started getting into rap and I was watching TV and seeing a lot of the things that I was looking up to. And Biggie had died around that time too. I was in like 3rd or 4th grade so it didn’t kind of register with me the way it did with everybody else. I was kind of away from all that. Tupac had already died first too, so it was weird.

“But everything was built up with me being young and just becoming a fan of rap music. I was getting music from my mom for Christmas and my birthday and that was one of them that I had to have. I was a fan of that whole movement. The whole Puffy and The Family thing, Ma$e, everything that they were putting down was pretty tight.

“‘Notorious Thugs’ was a tight song because there wasn’t really any rappers reaching out and collaborating with people and doing their style. Biggie went and rapped like somebody else. That was crazy.”
