Today BET’s 106 & PARK will take a look back on the life and times of Notorious B.I.G. by reflecting on his music, his career and his unforgettable influence on the rap game.
To bring viewers back to that “Notorious” era that we all loved, rapper Lil Kim stopped by the 106 & PARK studios for a special tribute to her, “Big Poppa”.
Viewers can tune in today (Friday, March 9th) at 6pm to catch Lil Kim talk about her memories of the fallen rapper. The femcee shares intimate memories of Christopher Wallace as well as participates as judge to a special edition of “Freestyle Friday” featuring Biggie’s most notable instrumentals.
Below are a few behind the scenes photos and quotes from today’s episode:
On her relationship with Biggie: “BIG was very protective over me. I wasn’t allowed to do anything. I was performing with Too Short and BIG got there before me and went to Too Short and said ‘What’s going on with you and Kim I’m not gonna let her do this song with you’”
On Biggie’s personality: “BIG was funny, he would stand in the door with just boxers on, no shirt doing the butterfly.”
On Notorious the film: “Notorious the movie was just a spoof. It’s hilarious. Certain parts are laughable because the people who were around know certain things in the film did not happen. At the end of the day even though I don’t mess with Cease (Lil Cease) and them, if I were to do a movie I’d let them tell their story.”
On her new music: “My new single is called ‘If You Love Me’. It’s a true story, it shows a different side of me…it’s my time to be free and do what I want to do.”
On what’s coming next: “Before we do a new album I wanted to just put out a few singles to feed my fans. I have a new song with a HUGE rap artist and his name starts with a J.”
