usmarin a lot of niggas used to say BIG reminded them of G Rap too subject matter wise. They said that about Nas also (Rakim mixed with G Rap) flow and subject wise. Big used double entendres too, and to me he was able to be just as witty while using less words than Jay. BIG did more with less, Brookyln's Finest shows that imo. Not to say Jay aint bring nothing to the table, I guess its preference, but I felt BIG more then for sure.Jay-z rap style is nothing like Biggies. Flow wise back then his cadence was more like a G Rap and lyrically he is much more wordy, witty,etc than Biggie. Jay uses a lot of double entandres, and Biggie was more of a storyteller who uses humor.
