Jay-Z

Musically, there's no doubt that Jay-Z, B.I.G.'s Bed-Stuy homey and early collaborator, is the best embodiment of his impact, not to mention his biggest advocate. Jay's delicate balance of mainstream appeal and Marcy Ave. edge was pioneered by Biggie. Hov has kept B.I.G.'s rhymes alive by frequently — too frequently to some critics — quoting and interpolating them in his music.
