What does the reference to "biggie" mean?

Carla said...

The Biggie Smalls song "Mo Money Mo Problems."

Who needs PhD-toting economists when we have posthumous rapper references?

Biggie didn't even listen to himself:

"Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis
When I was dead broke, man I couldn't picture this
50 inch screen, money green leather sofa
Got two rides, a limousine with a chauffeur
Phone bill about two G's flat
No need to worry, my accountant handles that
And my whole crew is loungin'
Celebratin' every day, no more public housin'
Thinkin' back on my one-room shack
Now my mom pimps a Ac' with minks on her back
And she loves to show me off, of course
Smiles every time my face is up in The Source
We used to fuss when the landlord dissed us
No heat, wonder why Christmas missed us
Birthdays was the worst days
Now we sip champagne when we thirst-ay
Uh, damn right I like the life I live
'Cause I went from negative to positive
And it's all... "

"Uh...and if you don't know, now you know. . . "

Um, can anyone explain this one to me? I get the mo money mo problems thing, but what's with freeze and slosh?

Mike said...

Look up freeze and slosh on the http://www.urbandictionary.com/

Then bookmark the site because as you get older you'll be using it more and more. Like I do.

Hooray for middle class.

I'm so old, I thought it had to do with Biggie Munn and the Slush Fund.

{sigh}

tahrey said...

Unfortunately the urbandictionary link has left me little the wiser as there are a number of conflicting entries for both words. Care to just take 20 seconds to type out a brief inline explanation please?

Frickin' brilliant! Thanks for giving me a huge smile, and for giving me a chance to feel self-congratulatory about my hip-hop repertoire. :)

LOL I thought it was to do with liquidity and the current economic melt down!

Freeze = cocaine
Slosh = loose woman (or alcohol?)

eh?

Ok, so (referring to another chart) no wisdom, more money, more problems...

I guess I'd be smart to not have any money so I'd have no problems, but my ... Oh forget it

(I like this one too)
