"I Got a Story To Tell" - Notorious B.I.G. A few years ago, the internet tried to pinpoint the exact date of the good day described in Ice Cube's classic "It Was a Good Day" (SOTW, 4/25/07), and while I never want to let logic and reason get in the way of something so fun and fascinating, the truth is there was no singular "day" where all that great stuff happened. It was an imagined day, or a composite of previous good days. It wasn't literal. Well now the internet has gone crazy again ever since Dan LeBaturd asked Fat Joe which Knicks player Biggie was talking about in this song. Sean Combs later confirmed Fat Joe's assertion that the song was about Anthony Mason. But we should remember, it doesn't mean whatever actually happened, is anything close to what is described in this song, because of course, we know that basketball games don't get rained out.
