“Juicy” is a song by hip hop artist The Notorious B.I.G. and his solo debut single from his 1994 debut album Ready to Die. It was produced by Poke of Trackmasters & Sean “Puffy” Combs. Its melody is sampled from Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit”, and has an alternative chorus sung by R&B girl group Total. The song is considered by many fans and critics as one of the greatest hip hop recordings of all time. The song is a “rags-to-riches chronicle” detailing his early years in poverty, his initial dreams of becoming a rap artist and early influences, his time in drugs and crime, and his eventual success in the music business. He talks about the “one room shack” that he grew up in, which is countered by his mother in the documentary Biggie & Tupac. The song was featured in the biographical film Notorious.
