There’s rules to this relationship ish!
Faith Evans takes us to the classroom in the official music video for “Ten Wife Commandments,” off her Notorious B.I.G. duets album The King & I.
The flip of her late husband’s classic drug dealer’s anthem, “Ten Crack Commandments,” uses Biggie’s original lyrics for the countdown, as Faith sings about the rules to being a great wife. “Number 9,” B.I.G. raps, with Evans responding: “Should’ve been number one to me / Gotta take care of the family.”
“Ten Wife Commandments” is actually the first song that Faith worked on while crafting The King & I. “With ‘Ten Crack Commandments’ being one of the songs I had always wanted to redo, I found it and got to work!” she previously told Rolling Stone. “It took a few different sessions to get the commandments to be meaningful and clever, but I do feel these are points that both men and women can appreciate.”
The King & I was released in May and includes features from Lil’ Kim, Jadakiss, Busta Rhymes, 112, and Snoop Dogg.
