* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Many of his songs are chock full of references to then-contemporary things like pagers and tape players. But the most notable example is probably "Juicy", in which Biggie boasts that he's now wealthy enough to afford the latest and greatest entertainment technology. Namely, "[[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super Nintendo]], UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis / When I was dead broke, man, I couldn't picture this!".

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Well... first of all, his song "Juicy" contains the line "Blow up like the World Trade", which needless to say takes on a second meaning today - he was actually referring to the previous attack on the towers. (Needless to say, in Music/{{Jay-Z}}'s tribute "A Dream" on his ''Blueprint 2'' album, the sample of "Juicy" blanks that line out.) And then he was gunned down in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles. Not only was his only album released during his life titled ''Ready to Die'', his second album, released posthumously, was titled ''Life After Death'', and the cover art consists of him standing next to a '''''hearse'''''. And if that wasn't enough, the album also contains the songs "Going Back to Cali" and "You're Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You)". FunnyAneurysmMoment and TooSoon all in one go.

* EarWorm: Quite a few of his songs are ''very'' catchy. Good luck listening to "Hypnotize" without having "Biggie Biggie Biggie, can't you see?" ping-ponging in your head for days afterward.

There's also "I love it when you call me Big Poppa! Throw your hands in the air, if you's a true player..."
