Rita Ora’s “How We Do (Party and Bullshit)” Notorious B.I.G.’s “Party and Bullshit”

Party Vs. Bullshit

Last week, Jay-Z’s pop protégé Rita Ora premiered the new video for her debut single, “How We Do (Party).” The radio-friendly track references another debut single, “Party and Bullshit,” from Jigga man’s deceased homie, The Notorious B.I.G. Biggie’s legacy sure does turn up in the craziest places, word to Miley Cyrus. While the Yugoslavian-born, British raised singer doesn’t have much in common with the Brooklyn legend, Mass Appeal had a lot of fun pointing out their differences. As Hov said, “men lie, women lie, numbers don’t.”
