Faith Evans and the late Biggie finally drop their first single “NYC” featuring Jada Kiss. The song has unreleased verses from her (Faith Evans) late husband the Notorious B.I.G.
The track is sorta like a tribute to the city that bred the artists involved. Jadakiss does the majority of the lyrical heavy lifting, with Evans singing on the chorus.
Biggie’s verse on the track, which is repeated throughout “NYC,” is culled from an unreleased but oft-bootlegged 1993 freestyle dubbed “Mumbling and Whispering,” .
You can feel the raw gritiness on the song that B.I.G. embodied in his early years, and it makes a perfect new anthem for New York City.
