“Who Shot Ya?” is a controversial gangsta rap song by The Notorious B.I.G., a B-side to his 1995 hit single, “Big Poppa”. The track was later released on the posthumous album Born Again, the remastered edition of Ready to Die, and The Greatest Hits. Originally the song was recorded for the Mary J. Blige album My Life and meant for what eventually became the K. Murray Interlude (as evidenced on the track by use of the same instrumental); however, Biggie's version was considered too violent to be put into an R&B album and Keith Murray was asked to record his version instead. The song samples David Porter's “I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over”.
