The 50 Best Notorious B.I.G. Songs

34. The Notorious B.I.G. "I Got A Story To Tell" (1997)



Producer: Buckwild, Chucky Thompson, Sean "Puffy" Combs
Album: Life After Death
Label: Bad Boy

Anyone even remotely familiar with Frank White's catalog knows he was an impeccable storyteller. And with a title like "I Got A Story To Tell," this song has to be a gem. Rumored to have been based on a real-life episode involving former NBA guard John Starks, “Story To Tell,” found Big holed up with a scandalous honey “who got dick from a player off the New York Knicks.”

When the ball player in question shows up during the rendezvous, Big comes up with a plot twist that's sicker than anything M. Night Shyamalan—or even R. Kelly—ever imagined. Flipping the tables on the player, he quickly turns his love-making session into a full-blown 211. Hilarity ensues, leading B.I. to hit one of the biggest licks of his life. This story was a classic.
