Owed to a King

My first encounter with Junior Mafia was in the Summer of 93. ┬áIt was at Daddy-O & Kedar’s studio in Bed-Sty, Junior Mafia was working on their demo. Lil Kim, The Snakes and Lil Cease were there recording and we all met for the 1st time, Biggie however wasn’t there. It was real peace and the word must have gotten back to BIG cause when we finally did meet in the Spring of 94 in Atlanta it was though we were old friends. Puffy had him and Cease in a blue van on a promotional college radio tour with Craig Mack and I bumped into them at Morehouse College. We sat in the van while I rolled a blunt, terribly I might ad. Later that year when BIG’s single Juicy was hot and his LP Ready to Die was released I caught up with him at his 1st headline show in Atlanta at the Warehouse. Soon as he saw me he grabbed my shoulders and I thought somebody was starting a fight. That was BIG’s way of joking. When I noticed it was him I laughed and he put his arms around me to greet me. We talked a good while before he went on. He was a little nervous about performing that night. He asked me if I thought the crowd was going to feel him. My response was this, “This place is packed and everybody’s here to see you.” Needless the say he repped for Brooklyn that night.

Biggie was a fun person to be around. He loved telling jokes, laughing and talking to people. The video’s I selected below remind me of the times we kicked it.
