Notorious B.I.G aka Biggie Smalls (Unbelievable)
I remember the first time I heard Biggie was on the Dolly My Baby track by Supercat. I remember borrowing the tape from my teammate Bruce when we were in college. I remember being moved by Biggie's verse. I kept playing the tape (yes...I said tape) over and over. We were getting ready to play a game and I told Bruce that I'd give him the tape back after the game.
He asked for it later that week at practice. I told him that I'd give it to him later when we got back to the dorm.
I had no intention on giving him back the tape. I had become a fan. By the time Biggie's first cd, Ready to Die, was set to debut...I had rocked Bruce's tape so much until it popped. When Ready to Die came out, I bought the cd and never replaced Bruce's tape.
To say that I was a HUGE Biggie fan is an understatement. Biggie was my dude. I think he was a great MC who was on the cusp of being a MEGASTAR before his life was tragically taken from us...13 yrs ago today.
We miss you, Biggie!
