He said: "I guess I would choose B.I.G. because of his ability to tell stories to be humorous, to be dead serious, he just had it all. Just his voice alone. I would choose Pac because his fire will overcome, what he doesn't have in technical skills will be overcome by passion. If you listen to that 'Tunnel' freestyle verse where B.I.G. is saying 'MC Hammer and them 357 women' and then you hear how Pac comes on, he just screams on the track, his passion could put a lot of guys to sleep. I guess Kool G Rap and KRS-One would be on there. I need more emcees. Y'all got Eminem and Nas."
