The 50 Best Notorious B.I.G. Songs

24. The Notorious B.I.G. "Just Playing (Dreams)" (1993)



Producer: Rashad Smith
Album: Ready To Die
Label: Bad Boy

Before B.I.G. blew with “Juicy,” he could only dream of boning the hottest R&B honeys in the game. And Faith wasn't even on the radar yet. On this hilariously vulgar B-side, Biggie waxed poetic about his favorites. As usual Big pulled no punches, questionably name-dropping Raven Symone (she was like nine at the time), and turning his nose up at “them ugly ass Xscape bitches.” Ouch. Sorry T.I.! Everyone from Mary to Whitney to Ru Paul (pause!) got it. This concept was used and abused by countless other rappers—male and female alike. Controversy sells, and none knew this better than Big.
