Notorious B.I.G.

Jay-Z sets off The Blueprint 2 with "Dream," which features Notorious B.I.G.'s unforgettable opening verse from "Juicy." A few years later, some of Big's old verse were repurposed for new songs on the posthumous album Duets: The Final Chapter, but none reached sounded as dope and natural as "Dream." Still, in 2012, Biggie's legacy remains as strong as ever.
