Okay, okay, we know what you’re thinking: “Rick Ross and… Biggie? The Notorious B.I.G.? Biggie Smalls? Big Poppa? Outside of being, well, big, what could those two possibly have in common?!” Back when Diddy first compared Ross to B.I.G. in January, we were just as skeptical. But after talking to him last week about the comparisons, we realized that the Rick Ross/Notorious B.I.G. parallels might not be quite as crazy as you think.
To prove the point, we sat down and came up with six ways Rick Ross and Biggie are actually quite similar.—Chris Yuscavage
# 4. Their relationships with female rappers…
Under normal circumstances, we really don’t care who Rick Ross is dating. It’s actually something we’d prefer not to know. But when he allegedly linked up with Foxy Brown back in 2008, it was, if nothing else, interesting. Same goes for Biggie, whose personal relationship with Lil Kim continues to be a source of controversy more than a decade after his death. Seems both rappers liked to mix business with pleasure.
