Song: The Notorious B.I.G. "Me & My Bitch" (1994)

So, you know this is from a Richard Pryor routine, right? Yeah, it's from a Richard Pryor routine. It was meant to be funny. But could B.I.G. have predicted that most people wouldn't get his reference to Pryor years later? Yes, he probably could have. And to that end, if there was one lyrical innovation in rap Biggie really missed out on, it was "No Homo" or, alterately, "Pause." Which is evidenced nowhere more in his repetoire than here.
