Here is a personal remembrance with Biggie!

One of my most cherished moments in my position as a music buyer was going to a lunch meeting with 2 new “Bad Boy” artists. I met with Craig Mack who had a HUGE song on the radio with “Flava in Ya Ear.” It was 1994 and Bad Boy also brought their other new artist to the lunch. The artist was “Biggie Smalls” who would also be known as “The Notorious B.I.G” and “BIGGIE”…..and  later as “RAP SUPER STAR and LEGEND”

Although Biggie’s first album was released one week prior to Craig Mack, it was Craig who had the first big single release and he was incredibly happy to tell “EVERYONE” about it.

I watched as Craig and Big devoured many appetizers, entrees, and drinks. We discussed how they got signed to their record deals and their excitement about being signed by Sean “Puffy” Combs on his new record label “Bad Boy Records” (founded in 1993). I remember that a huge topic of the lunch was their feelings about the OJ Simpson trial that was happening at the time. I remember Biggie saying,

“It does not matter if he gets off on this trial because he will be judged again when he meets his maker someday, he will pay if he killed those people.”

That conversation has always stuck in my mind because back then you just did not mention this topic much because there were so many mixed feelings about it. But Craig and BIG brought it up so I chimed in that I felt the same way as they did. At some point OJ would come before the only real witness and his eternal judge.

Big and Craig both had great manners and they were witty. Craig made it a point to tell all our servers that he had a hit song on the radio, and he asked them to turn MTV on their TV screens in the Tony Roma’s where we were eating in Carson, California.

It did not take long before Craig’s video showed up during our lunch. We screamed when it came on and several servers gathered around our table to watch it.

Craig was much more outspoken and flamboyant than Biggie. I made a point of telling the servers that Biggie had a GREAT album, and they were going to hear a lot from him in the future. To me Biggie’s song “Juicy” was already a hit and a song that I would spin as a DJ.

I could not help but notice Biggie while Craig’s video was playing. Big was supportive but he seemed a little quiet while the video was on. Big was never disrespectful in any way to Craig while we were together. But I did have the sense that BIG was quiet but confident in himself. He was a complete gentleman to me. I later pulled BIG aside to tell him that I was totally in love with his album, and I thought his song “Juicy” was going to eventually be HUGE at radio. I told him that his time was coming, and his album was  going to be BIG just like his name. I will never forget the smile and hug he gave.

NOW….HERE IS HOW YOU CAN WIN a SUPER DELUXE EDITION of the brand new 25th ANNIVERSARY of the NOTORIOUS B.I.G. “LIFE AFTER DEATH” on 8 LP’s.
