Baby 'Hypnotized' by Biggie Smalls

A father uses Biggie's legendary song as a lullaby for his crying baby.

(The Root)-- "Biggie, Biggie, Biggie, can't you see? Sometimes your words just hypnotize me."

Almost every hip-hop fan in the world can respect those lyrics from 'Hypnotize' on the Notorious B.I.G.'s 1997 album, Life After Death. Apparently that includes pint-size hip-hop fans, too.

This video of a baby entranced by the song has gone viral on Facebook since it was posted on Monday. A nameless father tapes his baby as he plays the song, stops it and starts playing it again. When 'Hypnotize' is playing, the baby is happy, wide-eyed and staring at the camera. Once Biggie's voice isn't blaring anymore, he's in tears.

We're guessing that the baby would have responded to Katy Perry in the same way. Still cute, though.
