Why is Biggie's Son On "One More Chance"?
Question... why is Biggie's pubescent son rapping on "One More Chance"? Dude, could you be any more inappropriate? I was listening to this Notorious soundtrack last week and one of the "remixes" on there (code for: ain't new shit on the album except a couple of very raw demos that helped get him signed) featured Christopher Wallace, Jr. Cute concept. Dumb song to put the little guy on. "Juicy" anyone? "Sky is the Limit"?
I know Big didn't really have a plethora of wholesome, uplifting or even appropriate songs for kids to rap along to. In fact, if you ask me Biggie should be getting thrown into the new 15 years later (insert person) is overrated-- like Pac now is. At least Pac usually had some kind of underlying point to his rants. Yeah, he may not have been as good of a lyricist as Big, but so what? I find myself enjoying artists who have something relevant to say that makes me think about things in a new way, or just think about things period than someone who can just put words together nicely. Now, should you have the ability to merge two together, then you're probably really phenomenal (Ras Kass pre-jail time, Andre Benjamin...).
Anyways, the bottom line is, it was dumb to put the little kid on "One More Chance." And well, a little disturbing.
