72. The Notorious B.I.G. "Unbelievable" (1994)
Producer: DJ Premier
Album: Ready To Die
Label: Bad Boy
Hearing Puffy attempt to sing the R. Kelly hook during a live recording of "Unbelievable" was by far the most amusing moment of rap in 1994. The track itself provided a welcome antidote to the radio-friendly aspirations of "Juicy" when it appeared as the B-side to Christopher Wallace's breakout single. DJ Premier could do no wrong in 1994 when he put this together at the last minute for a mere $5,000 as a favor to Biggie, who had "blown the budget" by this stage but desperately wanted some hard-rock music on his album. Honeydrippers drums, eerie strings, and a masterful chop of an obscure organ note are all that's required for this time Brooklyn banger.
