Today marks the 20th anniversary of Biggie’s breakout single, “Juicy,” and Shea Serrano/Grantland took the time to put together an extensive standardized test on the classic record. There’s a couple “facts” that most rap fans are aware of, including all that was seen in Notorious. I guess only a few folks really know everything that went on behind-the-scenes, but if you consider yourself a rap scholar, take Grantland’s test and prove it!

Grantland tossed out a few disputed tidbits: Pete Rock says he came up with the original version, and that Diddy lifted it from him. Perhaps this is turnabout, though. Consider: In 1993, San Francisco’s Dre Dog released an album called The New Jim Jones. His lead single, “The Ave.,” also used a slice of Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit” as its spine.

Biggie wasn’t all that excited about recording the track at first. We all watched Notorious. We all saw that part of the movie:

Outdoing himself once again, Drizzy Drake put on a hilarious mock performance of a “new” song dubbed “Honorable Mention.” Dressed in an off-white ensemble, with boat shoes and his ankles exposed to the world, the 2014 ESPY host paid tribute to all the second place winners in the sports world. After all, in professional sports, we all know there can only be one winner in each game.

But that was only half of the action, Drake also called on odd ball crooner Brian McKnight for a dedication to sidepieces of all kinds. Again, when you can’t be number #1, you settle for… second place, and for THOTS that means being the sidechick.
