The Notorious B.I.G. - On the iconic intro to "Juicy," Biggie explains that he only hustled to feed his daughter, T'yanna, who also had an adorable cameo in the video. And on "My Downfall," he eerily predicted his death and said sorry to the little girl he left behind: "Apologies are in order / For T'yanna my daugther / If it was up to me you would be with me."
