The Notorious B.I.G. “I Got A Story To Tell” (1997)
Produced by: Buckwild Samples: Al Green “I’m Glad You’re Mine” (1972)
Honorable mention(s): Eric B. & Rakim’s “Mahogany,” The Notorious B.I.G.’s “What’s Beef” & “Dead Wrong,” and Nas’ “U Wanna Be Me.” Complex says: We're gonna go out on a limb here and say this is Biggie's favorite sample ever. After all, he made three insanely dope records based around "I'm Glad You're Mine." We'd love to say our favorite part about that song is the sample, but Buckwild's story about how Foxy Brown hated on the "I Got A Story To Tell" beat only to tell Biggie it was great later on kinda trumps it all.
