"Nasty Girl" is a song by rapper The Notorious B.I.G. It was released in 2005 in the US and on January 16, 2006 in the UK. The single reached #1 in the United Kingdom (this being his first #1 in the country, just under a year after "rival" rapper 2Pac had also achieved his first #1 there also with "Ghetto Gospel"). The song features guest appearances from Jagged Edge, P. Diddy, Avery Storm, and Nelly and the video also contains guest appearances from Pharrell, Usher, Fat Joe, 8 Ball & MJG, Teairra Mari, Jazze Pha, DJ Green Lantern, Naomi Campbell and Memphis Bleek. It can be found on the album Duets: The Final Chapter, a remixed album of Biggie Smalls' work. The lyrical section rapped by Notorious B.I.G is actually lifted from another of his songs called "Nasty Boy", featured on from his second album Life After Death. Despite this, the production to the song "Nasty Boy" is completely different from that for "Nasty Girl", and apart from the lyrical sample, and the second verse (rapped by P. Diddy) rapped in the style of Biggie's second verse of Nasty Boy, the two songs bear no similarities. The chorus, sung by Jagged Edge, which has the line "Grab your titties for B.I.G.", references "Player's Anthem", which he says "Bitches, rub your titties if you love Big Poppa".

The Notorious B.I.G. claimed that he was recording "Nasty Boy" when Tupac Shakur was shot in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996. Instead of traveling to Las Vegas for the Mike Tyson and Bruce Seldon fight, he recorded his verse in the morning and saw the fight at home.

A slightly different version of the single also appeared on Nelly's Sweatsuit album.

"Nasty Girl" was used as the opening theme for Germany's Next Topmodel, Cycle 1.

Music video

"Nasty Girl" has a music video, featuring the song's featured artists mentioned above. It was produced by Jazze Pha, set in a party to honor the Notorious B.I.G. It includes clips of Smalls in the beginning and end of the video (the first showing Biggie and Tupac Shakur as friends before the rivalry). Just before Nelly's verse, Naomi Campbell makes a memorable entrance into the video, slapping a man in the process, when the man asks "Aren't you one of those Top Model girls?" The man is thought to represent Damon Dash (Dame Dash) because he's wearing a cap with the State Property logo on it. Dash was part owner of the State Property brand, and was frequently seen wearing caps with the logo. This episode may have been in retaliation for the movie Death of a Dynasty, which was produced and directed by Dash, and in which Diddy was portrayed in a farcical manner.

Usher, Evan Ross, Christina Milian, Pharrell, Teairra Mari, 8Ball & MJG, Corey Clark, Fat Joe and Jazze Pha made cameos.
