Riff: The Notorious B.I.G. – “Me & My Bitch”

Oct 3, 2013

During the days you helped me back up my nickels/In the process, I admit, I tricked a little/But you was my bitch, the one who’d never snitch/Love me when I’m broke or when I’m filthy fuckin’ rich

from Me & My Bitch lyrics by The Notorious B.I.G.

As close to a love song as you’re going to get from Biggie, and all things considered it’s not half bad. He’s no Barry White that’s for sure, but what he lacks in refinement he makes up for in dexterity. Big for better or worse keeps it 100% real; [LISTEN].
