A rare clip has surfaced from 1996 which features one of the only live performances of Notorious B.I.G. with Jay-Z.
The pair teamed up at Video Music Box creator Ralph McDaniels’ birthday party to perform “Get Money.”
Fuse has the video, along with the following story from McDaniels:
“Every year, I had a birthday party,” said Ralph McDaniels. “I wanted to get B.I.G. to host [it], but really I wanted him to perform. Jay-Z came with the whole Roc-A-Fella crew and they got on stage. I told the DJ, ‘If Biggie gets on stage, play a Biggie song and we’ll get him to perform.’ DJ Ace threw on ‘Get Money’ and the whole crowd went crazy. B.I.G. looks at me like, ‘I guess I’m supposed to perform now, right?’ Jay-Z plays hypeman to B.I.G. on ‘Get Money.’ That just rang through the hood forever.”
