Sunday Night Sample - Notorious B.I.G. Feat Eminem - Dead Wrong

Straight up depravity from Biggie and Eminem on this track. Some of Big’s best lyrical work, as twisted as it is, and Eminem shines at his brightest rapping about the darkest shit imaginable. As usual. 

A posthumous Biggie song about rape, murder, and pedophilia—perfect for an Eminem feature, which he discussed in his autobiography The Way I Am:

I rapped on a remix of The Notorious B.I.G. song ‘Dead Wrong.’ I remember writing this, literally, in 10 minutes. What Biggie was saying was so up my alley, and the beat was just so crazy. When I get one of those beats, and I get on a subject I know about, it’s just nonstop.

Eminem wrote his verse in 10 minutes, as he tells it in his book (p. 160), because “What Biggie was saying was so up my alley, and the beat was just so crazy. ”

BONUS - Eminem Original Freestyle 

The original version of “Dead Wrong” was produced by Easy Mo Bee in 1993,

possibly around the time he also produced Biggie’s debut single “Party and Bullshit” for the Who’s the Man? soundtrack while he was still recording for Uptown Records.

During a Combat Jack Show episode (83 minutes), both Combat Jack and engineer Young Guru agreed that Eminem more than held his own with the Brooklyn legend, but if Big were alive he would have “murdered” anyone, including Em.

The track is notable for an unsettling horn-driven beat, but the drums used on this track from Al Green’s “I’m Glad You’re Mine” is the same drum sample used on Biggie’s “I Got a Story to Tell” and “What’s Beef?.”

This song was mashed up with Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" from the 2006/2007 mixtape Rock Phenomenon, which features the alternate second verse coming from the Notorious B.I.G. in legacy. The line "relax and take notes" is also put in a mix for the mixtape introduction, provided and contributed by DJ Vlad & Roc Raida with Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda as the host for the album.
