In the 1990s, rapper/producer Puff Daddy was well-known for reintroducing old school tracks from the 1970s and ’80s to music charts populated by Generation X rock bands. In 1998, he breifly side-stepped the R&B samples and repurposed Bil Conti’s “Going the Distance” from the Rocky soundtrack. P. Diddy then tapped the lyrical might of the Notorious BIG and Busta Rhymes to create “Victory,” a fight song that oozes so much bad ass-ery it (appropriately enough) rivals Conti’s inspirational fight anthem.
Like I said, this bad boy (pun intended) is a product of Clinton-era gangsta rap, so…the n-word runs freely off everyone’s lips. NSFW!
