The Awesome Running Playlist – Track 26

Track 26 – Mo Money Mo Problems – The Notorious B.I.G. featuring Puff Daddy, Kelly Price and Mase (1997)

This is one of my all-time favourite tunes and an excellent party track. The upbeat-ness of the tune makes it a great running track. Much of this is down to the genius of the Chic duo Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers and their hook written for the Diana Ross classic “I’m Coming Out”.

Released posthumously in 1997 following The Notorious B.I.G’s death in the same year, it actually knocked Puff Daddy’s tribute to Biggie, “I’ll Be Missing You” off the top of the chart.

There’s not too much more to say. A classic hip hop tune with more than a sprinkling of disco greatness.
