On his single“Where I’m From” Jay-Z immortalized the debate about who is the best MC with one line: “I’m from where n*ggas pull your card, and argue all day about/ Who’s the best MC’s, Biggie, Jay-Z or Nas.” But his trusted engineer Young Guru already has his pick locked down–The Notorious B.I.G.
“Biggie Smalls is my favorite rap artist of all time,” Young Guru told The Fader magazine for their special Icon issue. “Me and Jay have these arguments and I tell him that Big was better than him…He used to challenge Jay. It felt bad for me because that was the only challenge Jay had. Big made ‘Who Shot Ya’ and called Jay on the phone and said, ‘Come uptown, I got something for you.’ When Jay comes uptown Big drops the CD in the car and walks away. It was a friendly challenge. That’s how they were. They used to spar together and they made each other better.”
