Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a G

5 Notorious B.I.G. Songs to Honor the Notorious RBG

Recommendations, Lists

On September 18, 2020, associate justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away after fighting pancreatic cancer off and on for eleven years. In her lifetime, she advanced the cause of women’s human rights by first arguing before the Supreme Court and then as a member of the court. 

Nothing would be easier than to give up hope in light of her death. However, in the words of Rev. William Barber, nothing would be more tragic than for us to turn back now. So, put your hair up, finish your coffee, and put on some gangsta rap. There is plenty of work to be done to bind up the wounds in our republic

Here are five Notorious BIG songs to turn up loud while you fight in honor of the Notorious RBG*. 

1 — Notorious Thugs (feat. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony)

Our situation is a tight one

What you gonna do

fight or run? 

2 — The Notorious B.I.G. (feat. Puff Daddy and Lil Kim)

All the time, Big Poppa kick the war rhymes

Raw flows, and that’s how it goes

3 — Juicy 

You know very well

Who you are

Don’t let ’em hold you down

Reach for the stars

You had a goal

But not that many

‘Cause you’re the only one

I’ll give you good and plenty

4 — Warning 

All-purpose war, got the Rottweilers by the door

And I feed ’em gunpowder, so they can devour

The criminals trying to drop my decimals

5 — Gimme The Loot 

(It’s impossible to excerpt a non-vulgar line of this song. Brooklyn to the fullest)

*Almost nothing in any of these songs reflects the values of The Colloquial, this writer, or the life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Biggie will have you ready to fight, though, and that’s what the moment demands. Fight on.
