And "Tha Shiznit" for the Intro.  I'm not sure why they didn't credit that.  That's also how I found out about "Top Billin'".  I'm don't know why I love that song so much, it's just plain dope.

classic album!! 2pac said that biggie copied his whole style with this album and its evident because he used easy mo bee's production on numerous tracks for this album.

^^  :argue: are u fo real dray? ur sayin u agree biggie copped pac's style? u cant make that judgement just based on production values. thats like saying eminem and snoop have the same style cuz dre did their albums

we have to face facts - BIG was a straight up lyrical virtuoso: the Itzhak Perlman of the rap game, who rapped abt errr...the crack game. pac was far more concerned abt the content of his raps than doing the whole multiple rhyme-smooth flow thing....pac was into promoting the idea of a thug/preacher/poet/prophet, a ridiculously flawed and contradictory construct that unfortunately too many urban youth buy into.

Ready To Die samples "Singing In The Morning" by The Ohio Players.  There was a lawsuit about it awhile ago, so it wouldn't be mentioned in the liner notes of the album.

Premier mentioned in an interview that "Unbelievable" samples The Honeydrippers' "Impeach the President" and the vocal scratch, on the chorus, is from R. Kelly's "Your Body's Callin'".
