Awesome 90's Songs You May Have Forgotten- Biggie Smalls "I Got A Story To Tell"
If you have any appreciation for rap music then clearly you haven't forgotten about B.I.G.'s I Got A Story To Tell. But on the fifteenth anniversary of Brooklyn's finest passing I felt it would only be appropriate to shine some light on one of my favorite tracks of his. This song showcases Biggie's incredible story telling skills, as he reminisces to his crew about a close call he had while fucking around with some chick behind her man's back. The "man" just happens to play for the New York Knicks, and for all intensive purposes I've always imagined the Knick in question was Charles Smith. No rhyme or reason as to why, but I've found that picturing him in the story makes the song 10x better. Also, nobody's got bedroom swag like Big Poppa- "My 112 CD blast, I was past. She came twice, I came last, roll the grass".
So whatever you end up doing this weekend, be sure to always stay far from timid, only make moves when your hearts in it, and live the phrase "Sky's the limit".
