Song of the Week - A Dream - Jay Z ft. Notorious BIG

"Had a dream," I said.  "Bout who," he said.  "Bout BIG," I said.  "That's Big," he said.  Much is made of Mr. Knowles' maybe-true, maybe-not Illuminati connections, but one thing I know for sure: he's one of the best lyricists in the game, and this was always one of my favorites from him.  Not quite as heartfelt as Puffy and Faith's tribute, but where the lyrics don't quite match the haunting music used for the track more than make-up for it all.

Maybe the beat would get Biggie to forgive Jay-Z for using a verse from a song he supposedly hated.
