Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Nasty Boy"
The Funny Lyrics:
Ladies, my Mercedes holds four in the back, two if you're fat.
Why They're Funny:
Biggie is informing his female audience that he's willing to allow them to ride in his car, likely to his residence or hotel room. Unlike other famous musicians, though, he does not discriminate against women so obese that they take up the seating room of two women of average weight.

The Funny Lyrics:
Birthdays were the worst days
Now we sip champagne when we thirst-ay
Why They're Funny:
Cracks me up that he tries to make "thirsty" rhyme with "worst days"... clever.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Autopsy Report Release Controversy"
An attorney for the family of Notorious B.I.G. said recently it's "ridiculous" that LAPD have not arrested anyone for the rapper's 1997 killing, which has returned to the spotlight after coroner's officials released a long-sealed autopsy report. The report revealed that injuries caused by a single bullet killed the rapper, whose real name was Christopher Wallace. Wallace, during a drive-by shooting in 1997, was hit by 4 bullets after leaving a music industry event. One bullet hit his heart, left lung, and colon, causing his death, the 23 page report states. The attorney, Perry Sanders criticized police for not closing one of LA's highest profile unsolved murders, especially since he had been told that police knew who was responsible. Police spokesman Richard French declined to comment, saying Wallace's killing was still an open investigation. Most believe it was the East Coast-West Coast rap rivalry turned deadly in the 1990s. Wallace's killing came months after Tupac Shakur was was gunned down in Las Vegas.
