Ever Wonder What Biggie, ‘Pac and Big L Would Sound Like Spitting Over Classical Music?

5. “Live At The Garden Freestyle” (1993)

If we took a poll of favorite ’90s era rappers, chances are Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G. and Big L would be highly represented. If the three were ever able to collaborate on a single track while they were all alive, it probably would have been fire. 2Pac and Big L joined forces for “Deadly Combination,” but the addition of Big would have made for a classic stew.

Dr. Wick combined verses from the three late MCs placing them over Polish composer Frédéric François Chopin’s Scherzo No. 2 from 1837. You don’t need to be versed in 19th century classical composers appreciate this peculiar mix. The ’90s era rappers’ straight forward rhymes gel perfectly with Chopin’s fluctuating piano loop and menacing chords.

‘Pac, Biggie and Big L all died before reaching their full potential. If they were still here today, who knows? Maybe we could have eventually gotten this deadly combination in real time.

Check out Biggie, Big L and ‘Pac over Chopin Scherzo No. 2, below.
