DJ Khaled has released a new song, “I Feel Like Pac, I Feel Like Biggie,” likely off his upcoming album, Suffering from Success.
DJ Khaled debuted the song on New York radio station Hot 97 today (October 7).
The song features a chorus by Swizz Beatz, where the producer-rapper references the lives and deaths of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.
“I feel like ‘Pac,” Swizz Beatz raps on the song’s chorus. “I feel like Biggie / I’m feelin’ like these hatin’ niggas waitin’ to kill me.”
Tupac was shot and killed in Las Vegas, Nevada, while sitting in the passenger seat of a vehicle. He passed away on September 13, 1996. He was 25.
The Notorious B.I.G. was shot and killed in Los Angeles, California on March 9, 1997. He was shot multiple times, also while sitting in the passenger seat of a Chevrolet Suburban. He was 24.
Both murders remain unsolved.
DJ Khaled’s song features Diddy, a onetime foe of Tupac Shakur and a longtime collaborator and producer for The Notorious B.I.G.
“This what the game is missing,” Diddy says during the song. “That gangsta, gangsta shit.”
On the song, T.I. raps his verse, while referencing several efforts by Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. One example of this can be found below.
“It’s an everyday struggle, nigga, me and my bitch,” T.I. raps during his verse. “It’s unbelievable the suicidal thoughts you could get.”
The line references “Everyday Struggle,” “Me & My Bitch,” “Unbelievable” and “Suicidal Thoughts,” selections from The Notorious B.I.G.’s acclaimed album, Ready to Die, released via Bad Boy Entertainment.
“I Feel Like Pac, I Feel Like Biggie” is likely a song off Khaled’s upcoming album, Suffering from Success, which is slated to be released October 22.
