LedgerLink's Top 15 Songs About Money

5. Mo Money Mo Problems — Notorious B.I.G. feat. Mase and Puff Daddy
This was supposed to be a catchy little tune about the problems successful rappers encounter as they get rich and famous. Then Biggie Smalls was gunned down in Los Angeles weeks before Life After Death was released, and “Mo Money,” the album’s second single, suddenly meant all too much more. With more money often comes more problems unfortunately, especially when you get embroiled in a tragic East Coast vs. West Coast battle that turned out badly for pretty much everyone involved, especially Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur and their fans.
I don’t know what, they want from me
It’s like the more money we come across
The more problems we see
