Riff: The Notorious B.I.G. – “Unbelievable”

Oct 3, 2013

He sounds demented, car weed scented/If I said it, I meant it/Bite my tongue for no one/Call me evil or unbelievable

from Unbelievable lyrics by The Notorious B.I.G.

There are contradictions all throughout Ready To Die, and not because Biggie is confused but because he’s in transition. He’s going from the streets to the main stage and he’s bringing all the hype and drama and talent with him. In the end he’s not ashamed to claim it because he’s a self made man.
