Top Ten Notorious B.I.G. Songs

The Top Ten


This song is very true andd tells the story of his life changing from bad to good and becoming more responsible

juicy - top song, you can never get sick of it, love it.

Birthdays was the worst days
Now we sip champagne when we thirst-ay

One of the best rap songs of all times. 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.


When he died and his body was being driven past his town someone played this song and everyone went wild

P. Diddy (known as Puff Daddy at the time) produced this and sampled the music from Herb Alpert's 1979 hit "Rise," which was written by Andy Armer and Herb's nephew, Randy Badazz Alpert, who told us: "I asked Puffy, in 1996 when he first called me concerning using 'Rise' for 'Hypnotize,' why he chose the 'Rise' groove. He told me that in the summer of 1979 when he was I think 10 years old the song was a huge hit everywhere in New York and 'Rise' along with Chic's 'Good Times' were 'The Songs' that all the kids were dancing and roller skating to that summer. He had always remembered that summer and that song. When he first played the loop for Biggie, Biggie smiled and hugged him."

Simply put, the best song of the king. The beat is amazing and blows you away.R.I.P. notorious B.I.G.

The greatest party and New Years eve hit of all time! Biggie smalls impresses with this by far!

Big Poppa

This has the best flow, one of his greatest, definitely one of the greatest songs of all time

My fave song of Biggie, when I listen to it, my head always rings and either I lip sing or rap while listening

This song makes me chilled out. So just sit back and relax homies

Big Poppa's 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.

Who Shot Ya?

IT IS NOT A 2PAC DISS, anyways this song gives me a really unique vibe, from the complex beat background to the dope ass lyrics and rhymes, 5 stars indeed.

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

My favorite track second too Juicy of course, I forget about how its apparently a 2pac diss song, just listen to the flow, vibe and the lyrics are perfect! 98/100

Its not dissing pac its just a generic Brooklyn shooting through biggies eyes and a great song

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 recognised but can't remember who it's by and what song it is. Makes me feel happy all the time.

10 years from now and its still on top

Mo money Mo problems its a lifestyle not a choice

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.

Everyday Struggle

Easily Biggie's best song. It has more meaning than any of his others. It definitely shouldn't be so low on this list, it is way better than Juicy and Hypnotize

How is this not in the top 5, it's his best song ever! The lyrics are so real and the flow is god like. So underrated just because it wasn't a single, it's way better than hypnotize.

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 are 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.

Notorious Thugs

first time I listened to this song I kept going back to biggie's verse, its just incredible, also the beat is smooth and sick.

NOTORIOUS B.I.G = Worlds Best Flow. AWESOME MAN! Another good rapper: Edo Maajka, great flow, too bad I don't understand him.

The Intro. The Instrumentals. The Flow. The Lyrics. This Song Is Perfect On All Levels. I Just Space Out When I Listen To This.

"So called beef with you know who"

Best rap line ever

Suicidal Thoughts

Such a touching song, it tells a huge story of his issues with suicides. Sick flow, masterpiece.

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

This is an amazing song. Puff daddy plays his part as well. Even though it's a short and there is only one verse, it is still great. It's set up really well. This song is basically a phone call, and it's amazing how they put the calls and the verse together.

A song about Notorious and the bad side of life and wanting to kill himself

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.

Live The phrase : Sky's the limit best song for me.

Personally my favourite Biggie Smalls song, although it's not the best, it's 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.

Kick in the Door

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

Should be higher then #9 ought to be #4 at the least has crazy good lyrics and flows and puts everyone in their place showing that he was the king of New York in the rap game

This should definitely be on top ten

That beat, the flow, everything

The Contenders


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

One of my favorite songs! Awesome Biggie song. One of the best off of The Notorious Big's Ready To Die studio album

Brilliant story telling through pager conversation!

Great song! Should be in the top ten

Dead Wrong

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 Biggy and hits it hard here.

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!

Em and big are a perfect recipe and they deliver the message hard

One More Chance

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

The Remix is fantastic

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

Biggest rap song ever#r&b

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

you can't go wrong with the two best rappers ever

This song, just changed everything... It just proved that music always powers over hate.. Absolute great song! R.I.P Biggie

The song that proved that music powers over all hate

This song is so memorable, Biggie has the best part and now everybody adapts his lyrics into their songs as choruses or even themselves

Party and Bulls**t

This song is to Biggie, what My Name is was to Eminem. That fun-ass song that told everyone who he was. Easily his best early song.

This should definitely be under the top 10 cause nice flow, nice text and a nice beat could hear it multiple times in a row

A great party song, not his best, but one of his first songs

Biggie's earlier drops, pays testament to what was then to come, top flow, top lyrics.

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 makes this song a favourite among many of his fans.

Biggie sings as if its 2 people having a conversation. The flow is insane and its lyrically very strong! Pure genius!

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.

Going Back to Cali

Great song by great artist

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 is in my opinion, one of Biggie's best.

This should be way higher on the historical significance alone

Going back to Call is biggie all time great in my book by far.


How is this not higher up the list?

Biggie smalls is the Illest

Biggie smalls is the illest

Sky's the limit is the dumb song it should be at the bottom

Machine Gun Funk

Hands down his best song. Nothing tops this. Not even juicy, or big poppa.

Biggies favorite song, quoted by the man himself

Hands down my number 1 biggie track. Love it!

I am so addicted to the beat and chorus

Ready to Die

Are you kidding me this should be top 5

Get this into the top ten

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

Great song, could do a big higher

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

Biggie Talks about the law of being a drug dealer and what to watch out for

Come on this is the baddest song there is! Chill as hell

What's Beef

Badass mafia-like tune, feel like a gangster listening to this

Deep and dark, the two keys to gangsta rap!

This one is a bomb

"beef is when you need 2 gatz to go to sleep"

"beef is when I see you
Guaranteed to be in ICU"

Best lines, come on, vote it up!

You're Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You)

Biggie's flow is as smooth as velvet in this one

Brooklyn's Finest

Biggie and Jay-Z in their prime. Amazing song

This song by ASAP is g

Jay Z and Biggie on a track? Biggies verse kills! Still the kings of Brooklyn

This is a Jay-Z song from Reasonable Doubt, Biggie is only featured

Hold Ya Head

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

Long Kiss Goodnight

Should be between 5 and 8 spots higher. 10 Crack Commandments sucks relative to this.

nice beat

I Got a Story to Tell

Released post death, features a unique upbeat vibe with a funny friendly flow telling the story. Which is truly unique.

Wow only real people like this song

Biggie just tells a good story with agood flow

Ni***s Bleed

One of the best stories ever told in hip hop. Close your eyes and listen, watch the movie with your mind's eyes

This is in my opinion the greatest song in his infamous life after death album right after his murder.

Great story.

I always get the chills in the last verse with this amazing instrumental. This is my personal favourite and I think this needs to be at least in the Top 10!
Great storytelling!

Get Money
Living in Pain

Great beat + Tupac/nas and mary blige. amazing song

Best song

Runnin' Your Mouth
Living the Life
Flava In Ya Ear
Things Done Changed

Bigs flow on this joint was flawless and perfect

1 2 3 all of this (list) to me is a mystery

Great flow. Really announced himself with this one

Nasty Girl

Dope ass beat but not his best since he's not really performing.

My all time favourite song

Best song hands down

Gucci mane on my level

Somebody's Gotta Die

Maybe Biggie's best example of storytelling. Can't believe it's so low on this list!

Just the best tune ever his flow is too good

The flow is so calm is sick!

Miss U

Vocals and feels are amazing

The What

Method man absolutely kills it and the beat is just so nice

Best song with the best wu tang's member

Me and My B*TCH
I Love the Dough

This beat is so chill, it's the perfect song for when you wanna feel good. The only flaw I can pick out in this song is the hook, but in all honesty it still sounds legit.

Come On
1970 Somethin

Biggie and the game just go off on this track a really good duo for this track

Old Thing Back

55th is this a joke, this is an amazing song and should be a lot higher, that goes for the remixed version or the original

Should be top ten, listen to it before you vote and you'd put it up there with the best of them

How is the non remixed version not on here and how is this not top ten, such a great song

This track needs to be higher, probably my favourite remix of a song ever

Spit Your Game

Similar to Notorious thugs, just a faster beat, I personally prefer this song to notorious thugs.

Love this song just heard it for first time

Love No Hoe
Last Day
N***as Bleed
Just Playing (Dreams)
