Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Hypnotize" by The Notorious B.I.G.

I was a little blown away just now when I realized that "Biggie" has been dead for more than 16 years.  I never really think of "Hypnotize" as an old song, but it was released as a single in December of 1996, three months before his murder.
