The Notorious B.I.G. - Juicy



"Juicy" is a song by hip hop artist The Notorious B.I.G. and his solo debut single from his 1994 debut notorious big album Ready to Die. It was produced by Poke of Trackmasters & Sean "Puffy" Combs. Its melody is sampled from Mtume's "Juicy Fruit", and has an alternative chorus sung by R&B girl group Total. The song is considered by many fans and critics as one of the greatest hip hop recordings of all time.

The song is a "rags-to-riches chronicle" detailing his early years in poverty, his initial dreams of becoming a rap artist and early influences, his time in drugs and crime, and his eventual success in the music business and ownership of both a Super Nintendo and a Sega Genesis. He talks about the "one room shack" that he grew up in, which is contradicted by his mother in the documentary Biggie & Tupac. The song was featured in the biographical film Notorious.
