It's All About The Benjamins - Puff Daddy, The Notorious B.I.G., Lil' Kim, The Lox

tempo: 90 bpm

The DJ's Take: Song #3 in our #59 mix (4:42):

This track is a slow build into one of the great closing verses in hiphop history. We've got Christopher Wallace at the peak of his powers, flowing effortlessly over a euphoric sample of It's Great To Be Here, which led off episode 52 of our mix show. Talk about saving the best for last.

On a side note, what's the over/under on number of years until >50% of Americans no longer know what a Benjamin is? I'm going with 20.
