RIP B.I.G. 10th Anniversary
I really can't beleive it's been 10 years. Damn. I remember where I was when I heard just like pops remembers where he was when he heard about Kennedy. Not that I'm saying they're relevance is comparable, just that it made a huge impact. As an anniversary gift, can Diddy please stop making horrible bullshit with the acapella's? Give those shits to Premo or Havoc or Easy or Buc!!! C'mon already. The new shit is featuring Ja Rule and Ralph Tresvant and swimming in crappy Bad Boy keyboard shit beats. At the least get Lil Jon or The Neptunes or Timbo to hook it up!
1st, here's a Rare Freestyle he did over an Easy Moe Bee demo, pre-Ready To Die and possibly my favorite shit ever. I got this, the best version I've been able to come up on, from a Flex CD from a few years back. Mister Cee also played it on Hot 97 on March 9th 1998, which was the first time I'd heard it.

2nd is another favorite, from Tracey Lee's debut. Jigga bit this sooo hard.

10 years dead and still the best...
