During a recent broadcast on MSNBC, news anchor Ari Melber referenced Biggie’s track “What’s Beef” when discussing the seriousness of COVID-19. 

According to the Mayo Clinic, although most people with COVID-19 have mild to moderate symptoms, the disease can cause severe medical complications and lead to death in some people.


Now with new evidence mounting about the dangers of the COVID-19 Delta variant more people are spreading awareness.

In an attempt to curve the surge, Ari Melber gave an insightful warning using lyrics from The Notorious B.I.G.’s “What’s Beef.”

“Covid is dangerous, it’s lethal. It’s a bit like the beef The Notorious B.I.G. used to rap about when he said ‘beef is when your moms ain’t safe up in the streets, beef is when I see you, guaranteed to be in I.C.U.’” he said.

“When Covid sees you you can end up in I-C-U,” Melber continued. “Maybe not at the same rate as Biggie’s beef, but that’s the point about risk. You don’t want to test these streets.”

Melber has made a magnificent habit out of quoting famous Hip-Hop lyrics.  In the past, he has referenced Mobb Deep, 50 Cent, 21 Savage and Pusha T.
