Fifteen years ago today, the world lost a man who many will argue is the greatest rapper of all time. Of course, I’m referring to the late great Notorious B.I.G., whose impact on hip-hop and culture at large is immeasurable. And while I could prattle on about his importance and just how much he could have accomplished had he lived longer, I’m going to stay focused to the task at hand.
Some rare footage of Biggie rapping and being interviewed on Sway and Tech’s The Wake Up Show has surfaced and you can watch the entire thing below. In addition to talking about his career and the then-recent murder of Tupac, B.I.G. performs “Long Kiss Goodnight” and “You’re Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You).” [HHNM]
