The LOX Explain The Notorious B.I.G.’s Jab on “You’ll See”


Back before The LOX was officially cemented as part of the Bad Boy crew, Puff Daddy had the group spit a freestyle song and put his flagship artist The Notorious B.I.G. on it. Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch had not met Biggie yet, but were anxious to start taking over the streets under the family. When “You’ll See” came out, there was some shots fired at them from the opening line which states, “niggas talkin’ it but ain’t livin’ it, crystal pops i’m sippin’ it.” All three knew they were talking that shit on the record and only B.I.G. could attribute to that type of life, but they said it was all love between all of them after that.

Va$htie ONE16GOAT Mix


January 16th is the birthday of Sade, Kate Moss, Aaliyah & FKA Twigs. In honor of these influential and iconic Capricorn women, I wanted to celebrate their lives through a special mix created by me.

Simply titled, #ONE16GOAT, for the animal associated with Capricorn, but also for the acronym “the greatest of all time” in reference to the goddesses born on January 16th.

Happy #ONE16GOAT Day, from your favorite Taurus! – Va$htie
