The 50 Best Notorious B.I.G. Songs

11. The Notorious B.I.G. "Machine Gun Funk" (1993)



Producer: Easy Mo Bee
Album: Ready To Die
Label: Bad Boy

There may be no better way to describe the sound Easy Mo Bee gave Biggie on Ready To Die, than the title of the song. Together, Big and Mo Bee sold bags of machine-gun funk by the ton, seamlessly weaving traditional NYC boom-bap with funk-inspired bass lines and samples. This was Big at his grimiest: Kicking exceptionally rough and rugged bars, Frank White beat the track "like Ike beat Tina."
