On the death anniversary of Notorious B.I.G. on this past Saturday, N.O.R.E spoke to Radio.com and narrated an untold story about him.
In the Notorious movie , there’s a scene where Biggie makes several calls to his loved ones. Noreaga reveals that one of those calls was made to him, although that didn’t appear in the movie. During the call, he says Biggie played Capone-N-Noreaga’s song ‘T.O.N.Y. (Top of New York)’ which was not released at that time, Biggie later told him that he was sitting next to the song’s producer Nasheem Myrick and that’s how he gained access to the recording.
“The only part that made me cry was when he was making those phone calls. I was one of those phone calls. I wasn’t honored that Big called me playing ‘T.O.N.Y.,’ I was like ‘How the f*** you get that?’ I’m thinking it’s bootlegged. Big Took like five minutes before he answered.”
B.I.G. then say……
“He was like, ‘I’m getting on the remix, ‘As soon as I get back to New York, I’m bodying that. Don’t tell no one I don’t want nobody to know.’ I’m thinking I’m gonna have the biggest record out.”
