What’s Beef?

What’s Beef?

The Notorious B.I.G.

The Notorious B.I.G. is sick of all the rap feuds involving rappers trading insults over songs and calling it “beef.” For Biggie, real beef involves sticks and stones—not words.

Biggie died soon after this song was released (most likely under circumstances related to his beef with 2Pac).

The drums sampled in “What’s Beef?” are drums Biggie has spat over before—on two of his other tracks.
