IT WAS ON THIS DATE, JUNE 29, 1993 THE NOTORIOUS B.I.G RELEASED HIS DEBUT SINGLE PARTY & BULLSHIT!!!

Party and Bullshit” is a song by American hip hop artist The Notorious B.I.G., then known as Biggie Smalls. The song is the artist’s debut 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 spoken word artists The Last Poets, however 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.” This song was performed at a concert with friend-turned-rival Tupac Shakur in 1993.

The music video  features Biggie Smalls performing outdoors in Brooklyn, New York. Sean Combs and Lil’ Kim also appear in the video
