I remember when I walked into the barbershop I frequented on Fulton and Grand in bedstuy (shoutout to my man Guess who was the sickest barber to ever hold a pair of clippers), with this song on cassette. Soon as everyone heard it, I had to fight cats off to get my shit back. The OG version of Biggie’s “Me and My Bitch” that didn’t make Ready To Die because of sample clearance issues.

Only thought it was right to revisit DJ Mister Cee’s dope Notorious B.I.G 10th anniversary mixtape today. Some vintage shit on here as only Cee can present. RIP Big.

Exclusives come from the most unlikely of sources sometimes. Back in 2000 wifey, nonchalantly mentioned over the phone she could get this Aaron Hall/Biggie record, I was like word???? Just when I thought I had heard every record associated with Big on the planet, she drops this gem on me. Also funny that they used Big’s gov’t name on the vinyl. No idea what this record was intended for, but anything Big spit two verses on needs no explanation.

Big shoutout to the Blackspot who just unearthed this gem that we played on our Nocturnal Transmissions radio show back in 1997 on 105.9 FM. The show consisted of myself (DJ Rhude), Blackspot, Datwon Thomas, and DJ Freedom Child. I had come into possession of B.I.G.’s song “Victory” in it’s demo form, unmixed before Puffy and Busta Rhymes got on the track. Unfortunately I had lost my original copy on cassette so this has went unheard until now. I believe we broke this maybe a month or so after Big’s passing. Biggie Smalls, RIP!
