"Juicy" is the title of a song by American hip hop artist The Notorious B.I.G. and his solo debut single from his 1994 debut album Ready to Die. It was produced by Poke of Trackmasters & Sean "Puffy" Combs. It is a sample of Mtume's "Juicy Fruit", but obtains its instrumental beat from the song's "Fruity Instrumental" mix, and has an alternative chorus sung by girl group Total. The song is considered by The Source and About.com as one of the greatest hip hop songs of all time.[1][2] The song has sold over 5,607,000 copies.

After the death of The Notorious B.I.G. in March 1997, a tribute version of this song was made in his honor by the R&B musical group Next with mostly alternate lyrics.



The song is a "rags-to-riches chronicle"[3] 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 current lavish lifestyle. 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.

  Production controversy

Producer Pete Rock alleged that Puffy stole the idea for the original song's beat after hearing it from him during a visit. Rock explained this in an interview with Wax Poetics:[4]

I did the original version, didn't get credit for it. They came to my house, heard the beat going on the drum machine, it's the same story. You come downstairs at my crib, you hear music. He heard that shit and the next thing you know it comes out. They had me do a remix, but I tell people, and I will fight it to the end, that I did the original version of that. I'm not mad at anybody, I just want the correct credit.

Rock's remix for "Juicy" uses the same sample as the original.

On the Juan Epstein podcast[5], Pete Rock discussed this briefly as well, mentioning that it was he has no hard feelings about how "Juicy" came about, just that he had wished he'd gotten the proper credit, although he did harbor some ill feelings at one time.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
