Rick Ross, Diddy & French Montana Channel Notorious B.I.G. On “Nobody”: Listen

As Stereogum astutely points out, Rick Ross‘ “Biggie Smalls corpse-humpery levels” hit an all-time high with new Mastermind track “Nobody,” which uses the same beat and hook as Notorious B.I.G.‘s Life After Death track “You’re Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You).” French Montana is on hook duties here, while Diddy is doing “Hate Me Now”-style yelling in the background — and he’s even credited here as Puff Daddy, the moniker he used back during the Biggie days, to remind you that THIS IS A WORK OF NOSTALGIA.

Hear it below, but honestly, it’s a pretty lazy re-creation, so you’re better off just spinning the original.
