One of rap’s greatest emcees and storytellers, the Notorious B.I.G. had a book of classic rhymes that are still being deciphered nearly 20 years after his death. One of those classics was the story he told on “I Got A Story To Tell.” On the single, Biggie reminisced on the time he slept with the girlfriend of a New York Knicks player, and subsequently robbing the athlete at gunpoint afterward.
