The 50 Best Notorious B.I.G. Songs

13. The Notorious B.I.G. f/ Eminem "Dead Wrong (Remix)"



Producer: Chucky Thompson & Mario Winans
Album: Born Again
Label: Bad Boy

While the majority of Big's posthumous material was was spotty at best, the brightest moment on the Born Again album was his “Dead Wrong (Remix),” featuring the red-hot-in-1999 Eminem. Biggie's vocal was lifted from a Mister Cee Best Of Biggie mixtape, and flawlessly remixed.

The original Easy Mo Bee beat was booted in favor of a more contemporary Al Green-sampling banger courtesy of the Hitmen. Big's voice, cadence and flow were clearly from his pre-superstar days, but with the help of Eminem's brilliantly off-color and ultra-violent verse, it sounded right in place with the sound of the late-'90s. Unfortunately the remainder of Born Again was a patched together mess—but it still went triple-platinum on the strength of this track and Biggie's name alone.
