The 50 Best Notorious B.I.G. Songs

44. The Notorious B.I.G. f/ 112 "Miss You" (1997)



Producer: Kay Gee
Album: Life After Death
Label: Bad Boy

No stranger to tragedy, “Miss U” found Big telling three stories about various acquaintances who, one way or another, had fallen victim to the struggle. Whether by stray shots or getting knocked, Big could relate.

Playing the part of a heavy-hearted street cat, Big made a record about love and loss that everyone could relate to—even if their “struggle” was different. The pairing of KayGee's organs and harps with 112's light vocals provided a somber yet melodic way to reminisce. The track was all the more bittersweet because soon after he recorded it we were missing Big as well.
