Top 10 Best The Notorious B.I.G. Songs

The Top Ten
1 Juicy

One of the best rap songs of all time. Some might say that B.I.G. was better than Tupac, but they were different. Biggie was about the wordplay in his songs, the rhymes, and in that sense, his songs were masterpieces. Tupac was more about the deeper lyrics, and his songs were about what was being said in the songs.

This song reminds me a lot of my 90's period. I can't even explain why this song is the best of Notorious B.I.G. The beat is perfect, the flow too, and we can see his mother at the end of the clip. Best Notorious tune ever. I will never get mad at it.

2 Hypnotize

I really hate the person who shot Biggie. I just love this song, though. I love the main chorus. The song's beat is great as well. I listen to this song all the time.

The greatest song I have ever heard from the album Life After Death. Amazing hit and deserves to be in front of Big Poppa, and it is, woohoo!

The greatest party and New Year's Eve hit of all time! Biggie Smalls impresses with this by far!

3 Big Poppa

Big Poppa is my favorite Biggie song and is one of the best and most memorable rap songs of all time. Biggie's flow and the laid-back beat make this song always fun to listen to.

This was the song that first got me into Biggie! I have been listening to him every day for a year and a half now. He is just so classy, and his flow is impeccable in this song.

Best flow of any of his songs. I could play this song on repeat for hours. It instantly puts me in a better mood. Credits to "Everyday Struggle" as well, also a great song.

4 Who Shot Ya?

It is not a 2Pac diss. Anyway, this song gives me a really unique vibe, from the complex beat background to the dope lyrics and rhymes. 5 stars indeed.

My favorite track, second to Juicy of course. I forget about how it's apparently a 2Pac diss song. Just listen to the flow, vibe, and the lyrics. They are perfect! 98/100.

Amazing song all the way! Full of amazing rhymes and an outstanding beat. One of his very best songs on the album.

5 Mo Money Mo Problems

R.I.P. Biggie! This song wasn't all badass or serious. It was just plain fun. This is one of those songs you've heard and recognized but can't remember who it's by and what song it is. It makes me feel happy all the time.

I can't really explain. I just feel happier when I listen to this song. Plus, it never fails to pick me up on a bad day.

6 Everyday Struggle

If you ask me, I think this should be No. 1. If you don't believe me, then listen to this song for yourself. It's so underrated. It's from the Ready to Die album and is amazing!

His flow is so good, and the lyrics are so deep and real, rapping about the streets and how he stays alive in such a horrid environment.

The lyrics are so well put together and very clever. The flow was perfected. He raps about problems he faced living in the ghetto, unlike other rappers who rap about swag and money.

This should be in the top 10! It's underrated because it was a filler track in Ready to Die, but it's very good.

7 Notorious Thugs

Different from Biggie's usual slower flow. He spits very fast. Let me say it right now, Biggie's verse is the best verse ever.

The moment Biggie starts in this song, you can see goosebumps jumping out of your hand!

This song is Biggie at the top of his game. His immaculate flow paired with Bone Thugs' energy is intoxicating.

8 Suicidal Thoughts

The flow and content of this song are not only amazing but also revolutionary to hip-hop as a whole. It completely transforms the entire story of "Ready to Die" as an album. This makes it incredibly profound when it comes to discussing his career, and I think it makes it his best song.

Suicidal Thoughts is a sad song about Biggie's troubled side. The way this song is set up is phenomenal. The song is pretty much a phone call where Biggie and Puff are talking to each other. Then Biggie starts rapping, and finally, he kills himself. One of his best songs.

9 Sky's the Limit

I'm sure when Biggie made this song, he realized that he finally reached the stars he always dreamed of. It's just very sad to know that he didn't live long after to enjoy it to its fullest.

Personally, my favorite Biggie Smalls song. Although it's not the best, it is a feel-good song. Not as good as "Keep Ya Head Up," but a different style of rap nonetheless.

Biggie is my favorite artist. He was better than Tupac, in my opinion.

10 Kick in the Door

Biggie's version of Hit 'Em Up. Insane rhymes and lyrics that just put everyone in their place.

The Contenders
11 Warning

One of my favorite songs! An awesome Biggie song. One of the best off The Notorious B.I.G.'s Ready To Die studio album.

Great story and wonderful flows. My favorite Biggie song, but he has so many great tracks it's hard to pick.

Brilliant storytelling through pager conversation!

12 Dead Wrong

Juicy and Hypnotize are the main songs on the greatest hits, but Dead Wrong stole the show just by the first verse of the song. Also, this song made Eminem's best hits to beat that Juicy!

Incredible song with very real lyrics about the real-life violence that Biggie had experienced. Eminem also killed it, but BIG stole the show.

If you haven't heard this one, you've missed out. Eminem joins Biggie and hits it hard here.

13 One More Chance

His flow on this song will make you listen to this over and over again.

This should be top ten for sure. The remix needs a separate spot in the top ten as well.

14 Runnin' [feat. The Notorious B.I.G.]

How is this not in the top 10? Two of the best rappers ever in a song with an amazing beat and message.

This song just changed everything. It proved that music always has power over hate. Absolutely great song! R.I.P. Biggie.

The bass in this shakes my rib cage. I blare this in my Benz every day.

15 Party and Bulls**t

Best lines ever:
Honeys in the back looking righteous
In the tight dress
I think I might just.

This is his best song. Every single line was quotable.

This song is to Biggie what My Name Is was to Eminem. It's that fun song that told everyone who he was. Easily his best early song.

His best song, full stop.

If anyone has seen the video of him performing this live, you'll know what I'm talking about: "chill man chill."

16 Gimme the Loot

Biggie acts as two people in this song, and he is absolutely flawless. The beat, the rhyming, and of course, the rapping make this song a favorite among many of his fans.

This is the most hardcore, Brooklyn, raw song I have ever heard, from the beat to the flow. This is coming from a hip-hop head. This is Biggie at his finest.

He acts as two people, and the flow is flawless. This shows his creativity as an artist in addition to his prowess as a rapper.

17 Going Back to Cali

This song is super underrated. The beat here pounds. It's such a hard beat, but Biggie has such a great flow and rides on it really well. This song isn't the most well-known song ever, but it is, in my opinion, one of Biggie's best.

Going Back to Cali is Biggie's all-time great in my book, by far.

This should be way higher on the list based on historical significance alone.

18 Machine Gun Funk

One of his more hardcore "gangster" songs, with a kickass beat and sharp lyrics. Maybe not his best song, but give it a listen.

Hands down his best song. Nothing tops this, not even Juicy or Big Poppa.

Hands down my number one Biggie track. Love it!

19 Ready to Die

This song deserves to be way higher up on the list!

20 Unbelievable

How is this not higher up the list?

21 You're Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You)
22 Ten Crack Commandments

It's a little short, but it's better than Juicy and Big Poppa, and way better than Hypnotize! Hypnotize is actually garbage.

One of those classic joints that you can pump anywhere while listening to Big's legendary wisdom of the game on the streets.

Not the best, but at least deserves a top 15 spot.

23 What's Beef

Deep and dark, the two keys to gangsta rap!

Badass mafia-like tune. I feel like a gangster listening to this.

24 Brooklyn's Finest

Jay-Z and Biggie on a track? Biggie's verse kills! Still the kings of Brooklyn.

Biggie and Jay-Z in their prime. Amazing song.

25 Hold Ya Head

Suicidal Thoughts, but mixed with Bob Marley. Fantastic song. Captures the depressing state of mind Biggie was in.
