• An Unreleased Notorious B.I.G. Track Called “Bastard Child” Has Surfaced

    It’s been over two decades since one of the late great rapper passed, but over the weekend, a new Notorious B.I.G. track has surfaced. The track is called “Bastard Child,” and features a never-before-heard verse from the legendary hip-hop figure. The second verse is in fact his original bars from “Dead Wrong” before Eminem was added. Statik Selektah is credited with the production, and he can also be credited for bringing this track to light.

    It’s not every day that you wake up to find new never-heard-before Notorious B.I.G. verses. Legendary producer Statik Selektah shared an archival collaboration titled “Bastard Child” featuring the iconic Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn rapper in rare form.

    There’s no word on when this track was actually recorded, but the soulful sample is full of Statik’s signature bounce with vocal loops and some vintage DJ scratching. The second verse is from B.I.G.’s “Hope You N*ggas Sleep” featuring Cash Money Millionaires and previously unreleased “Dead Wrong”. This past March marked the 23rd anniversary of Biggie‘s tragic passing after falling victim to a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles, California. With what would have been his 48th birthday being celebrated on May 21, perhaps there’s more unreleased tracks in-store. Only time will tell.
