“Get Money” is a song by Junior M.A.F.I.A featuring Notorious B.I.G. from their debut album Conspiracy. The track was released as the third and final single from the album, and sampled R&B singer Sylvia Striplin's 1981 song "You Can't Turn Me Away.” As you all know, in 1995 Biggie Smalls was one of the hottest youngest rappers out, and would later go on to solidify his status as one of the greatest to ever do it in hip-hop.

The mid-1990s would also mark the introduction of Lil Kim, who has since gone on to become one of the greatest in rap/hip hop as well. “Get Money” was produced by EZ Elpee and released on February 3rd, 1996, spending 20 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 where it peaked at No.17. The song would also be certified platinum with over one million copies sold.
