The Notorious B.I.G. – Party and Bullshit (Uncut)


“Party and Bullshit is a song by the American hip hop artist The Notorious B.I.G., credited as BIG. It is his first single and was released as the fourth promotional single for the soundtrack to the 1993 film Who’s the Man?.


The refrain “party and bullshit” was inspired by the song “When the Revolution Comes” by the spoken word artists The Last Poets. Wallace changed the meaning in his rap. Abiodun Oyewole of The Last Poets explained, “When we rapped, it was all about raising consciousness and using language to challenge people. When I wrote [about] ‘party and bullshit’ it was to make people get off their ass. But now ‘party and bullshit’ was used by Biggie, used by Busta Rhymes, but in a non-conscious way.”[1] The song was performed at a concert with Biggie’s friend-turned-rival Tupac in 1993.
