More Money More Problems

On the great Notorious B.I.G. / Puffy video you forgot about: Great moments in post-modernism, pt. 1 (More Money, More Problems).


"Win the champion!" That's gold.

I love this song. I had never heard the unedited version until now.

Mase was awful! Who's idea was it to give that mushmouth a contract? Must've been some executive's nephew.

wow, thanks for the link.

this seems like a good time to mention that I started reading this blog right around the "Kanye video with Will Oldham post":http://www.fimoculous.com/archive/post-2957.cfm. It continues to amaze me, tho my question would be, What was Oldham trying to say? Then again, I wonder that anytime he does anything.

Re. "unedited," my assumption always was that this version of the song was only for the video; doubt the album version would have had the golf bits oddly spliced in?

Talking about the profanity, alesh. No "nigga" etc. in the version of the song/video I've seen/heard until now. It's weird, I don't want songs to be censored, but when the censored one is the only one I've ever heard, and then I later hear the uncensored one, I always prefer the censored. Guess you just get something set in your head.

Putting with the flag in is a two-stroke penalty. So, Puffy might not be the champion, unless he was leading the field by a wide margin.

The album version of this song most certainly does not have any of that Puffy nonsense spliced into it.

I hated this video, but that's because I love The Notorious B.I.G.

And unfortunately, this was some of the best flow Mase ever recorded.
