'Dinosaurs' Mashup Lands Biggie's "Hypnotize" Back On Billboard Chart
The viral video that features Dinosaurs patriarch Earl Sinclair rapping the Notorious B.I.G.‘s 1997 hit “Hypnotize” is now responsible for landing the BK legend back on the charts. Coming in at no. 36 on Billboard‘s Rap Streaming Songs chart, the single has enjoyed a surge in popularity thanks to quirky 90s nostalgia mashup that married the best of the aforementioned sitcom with the unforgettably flossy track from the celebrated MC- a performance that could only be outdone by footage of Sinclair edited into the original Paul Hunter video alongside Puff. According to reports from Billboard, the track debuted on the chart this week buoyed by a 633% leap in popularity that eclipsed the track’s performance the week prior with over 4 million plays in the U.S. “Hypnotize” currently sits between PSY‘s “Gangnam Style” and Nicki Minaj‘s “Truffle Butter” at no. 11.
