The 50 Best Notorious B.I.G. Songs

25. Puff Daddy f/ The Notorious B.I.G., Lil Kim & The LOX "It's All About The Benjamins" (1997)



Producer: Deric "D. Dot" Angelettie
Album: No Way Out
Label: Bad Boy

“Benjamins” is the quintessential club banger. In fact, the song is probably being spun at a club somewhere as you read this. From the beat, to the hook, to the bridge, it's a flawless party starter and couch-dancing anthem.

Capping off this incredible remix (the original featured only the Lox and Puff), was Francis the praying mantis, who effectively tore the track to shreds, becoming the only MC to rhyme over a different beat.

As always, Big's verse is filled with gems, but the song's most quoted line has to be “Fuck the state pen/Fuck hoes at Penn State.” Isn't it awesome that his daughter is now a freshman at that very university. What are the chances?!
