In 1994, Halle scored a supporting role in a big-budget remake of The Flinstones. The same year, Biggie Small’s debut album Ready To Die dropped, instantly making the late Brooklyn MC one of the largest names in rap.
B.I.G. didn’t mention Ms. Berry on his classic debut, but he shouted out her iconic short-cut on of his legendary demo cuts, “Macs & Dons,” which circulated the streets before the album was released.
Around the same time, Yonkers spitter Keith Murray also noticed Halle’s rising profile. The Def Squad member mentioned her on his aptly-titled debut The Most Beautifullest Thing In The World album, which, as far as we know, wasn’t inspired by Halle’s looks.
The Notorious B.I.G.

“What kind a girls do you like?”
Well, that’s various
I like long hair or them Halle-Berry-cuts
Real big butts, yeah, thick with lipstick
Cause when it come to girls I’m optimistic”
The Most Beautifullest Thing In This World
“I rise my eyes burnt like cherry
Get wise to my style more fly than Halle Berry”
