    • Brahsef

      I would say you are the in the smallest of small minorities with that statement.

  • that nigga

    BIG was nice. I dont think overrated, just everyone was on his dick so hard it made him seem like some SUPER MC and thats where the overrated comments come from.

      that nigga says:

      BIG was nice. I dont think overrated, just everyone was on his dick so hard it made him seem like some SUPER MC and thats where the overrated comments come from.

      i totally co-sign with ‘that nigga’ in regards to Biggie…i go even further to state that lil wayne is currently in a similiar situation with everyone seemingly on his dick and him being overrated…yes i love me some lil wayne…and he is dope…but i would say the major difference between Biggie & Lil Wayne…is that Biggie kicked dope proficient lines on a consistent basis…However Lil Wayne at times will come up with some super-sick ingenius lines but other times he’ll have dope lines…and then other times…his lines will just FALL SHORT…example from a lil wayne quote” “i’m the shit like S-H-I-T” (lil wayne just spells it out…wtf!!!)

    • DeLuX

      Dog, you are fucking IGNORANT. Listen to Big Popa, Juicy, Who shot ya, shit – ANYTHING BIG recorded. It’s straight fire, every last song. If you dispute that, it’s like saying the Wu sucks, dude’s just start lookin’ at you kinda funny.

    first off wayne sucks period. no need 2 say more on that subject. n if biggie was overrated so is jayz bitch ass. cuz i swear when biggie was alive there was no such thing as jay. big jus had a lot of spotlight sum other niggas deserved.

  • Lester Diamond

    20 bucks says the Notorious movie sucks. Puffy needs to let my nigga rest in peace. I know child support is a bitch but damn!

  • http://WWW.GRINDFAMILY.COM YUNG TWEEZY

    TO SAY THAT BIGGIE SUCKED IS JUST PLAIN PROPOSTUROUS. THATS WHO JAY-Z GOT HIS STYLE FROM. AND AT LEAST 20% OF THE WORDS THAT COME FROM JAY-Z WERE SAID BY BIGGIE AT ONE POINT.
    ALL THAT “RAPPIN OFF THE HEAD” AND THOSE “ONE TAKES” IN THE BOOTH. THAT CAME FROM BIGGIE.
    AND NOW YOU HAVE PEOPLE LIKE LIL WAYNE TRYING TO DO IT AND IT SOUNDS LIKE TRASH.

    BUT I GUESS HE IS JUST “BIGin UP HIS BROTHER”(NOT)

  • dusty boy

    Until somebody manages to spit a story with the precision that BIG did on “Niggas Bleed” then he’s hands down one of the top five dead or alive!

    Biggie was one of the greatest of all time, anyone that understands the history of hip-hop knows this.

    As for over-rated…If he was over-rated then why can’t anyone reproduce his style. He was one-of-a-kind, the fact that so many people comes to his defense when he is not here is a testiment to his music.

    “Big Pappa never softening…”

  • JERZEY

    FUCK BIGGIE, THAT NIGGA ONLY HAD LIKE 3 GOOD SONGZ, THE ONLY GOOD THING HE HAD WAS HIS DELIVERY, HIS RYHMEZ WEREN’T EVEN THAT GOOD LIKE I SAID IT WAS HIS DELIVERY.

  • Penelope Rodriguez

    I’m afraid for the Biggie movie. It will suck monkey nuts, I swear. No one is going to spend $12 to see this film. None of the actors look like their real life counterparts. And they better portray the relationship between biggie and kim correctly. it wasn’t all lovey-dovey

    you nigga’s are so dumb, i made that comment to get you all mad.
