The Notorious B.I.G.’s R&B Dreams [Candy Bars]

In 1994, The Notorious B.I.G. put the thoughts of millions of men to record when he named all of the R&B singers he was crushing on in “Just Playing (Dreams).” With a sharp tongue and clever wordplay, a young Biggie delivered his explicit references to everyone from Whitney Houston to Mary J. Blige with a charm no other MC could pull off. XXL staff would love to see a modern rhymer take a shot at making an updated version, but since Rhianna seems to be the only R&B Eye Candy worth name-dropping in lyrics these days, re-listening to B.I.G.’s classic and clicking through the slideshow of throwback R&B chicks will have to do. Sit back, relax, steam a blunt and remember, he’s just playing. — XXL Staff (@xxl)
