Busta Rhymes, Biggie and 2Pac

Busta Rhymes Unveils Origin of Controversial Biggie Verse Targeting 2Pac

In a recent episode of the All The Smoke podcast, Busta Rhymes provided insights into the creation of a verse by The Notorious B.I.G. that took aim at 2Pac during their highly publicized feud.

Rhymes recounted the genesis of Biggie’s verse on “Dangerous MC’s,” revealing that during a studio session, Biggie, accompanied by Lil’ Cease, indulged in rolling blunts while others eagerly awaited his contribution. Despite hours passing without any writing, Biggie eventually entered the recording booth and effortlessly delivered his verse.

The verse, which included lines like “Diamonds on my neck, chrome drop-top / Chillin’ on the scene, smokin’ pounds of green,” showcased Biggie’s lyrical prowess but also sparked dilemmas for Rhymes, torn between his friendship with 2Pac, who was directly targeted in the lyrics.

Despite Rhymes’ reservations, the verse made its way onto Diddy’s Born Again album after being discovered by the producer during a search for unreleased material.

This revelation comes in the wake of Rhymes reminiscing about his time with 2Pac, recalling a studio session where 2Pac wrote multiple songs to the same beat, showcasing his prolific creativity.

Additionally, Lil’ Cease previously disclosed Biggie’s intention to enlist Busta Rhymes and Nas in a response track to 2Pac’s “Hit ‘Em Up,” shedding further light on the intricate dynamics of the East Coast-West Coast hip-hop rivalry of the mid-90s.
