audio review : Me And My Bitch ( song ) … The Notorious BIG

The “Me” in the title refers to Biggie, but clips of a casual conversation between Puff Daddy and his “bitch” is a nice touch; if only because those bits, played during the breaks, add to a simple hook that wouldn’t sound so underdeveloped if it had a girl singing something sweet in the background.

Not that such a feature would make this anything close to a traditional love song. The string loop sounds nice, but the Notorious one is too thuggish for that. “When the time is right, the wine is right, I treat you right,” he tells the object of his affection, “You talk slick, I beat you right.” How romantic.
