The Notorious B.I.G. passed at the age of 24 and today he would be celebrating his birthday. The rapper would have been 48-years-old.
Recently, Fatman Scoop and Snoop Dogg had an interesting conversation. Snoop discussed why he decided to change the content of his music.
“One day, me and my cousin Daz were going to the studio and I had a song in my head called ‘DAVE,’ D-A-V-E, Death After Visualizing Eternity. So, I wanted to write a song about someone that died and came back. At the time, I was gang-banging and all kind of sh*t, so my pen made me write ‘Murder Was the Case,’ which was the story of a gang-banger that got shot and on his death bed made a deal to get his life back, but he crossed God and he ended up losing at the end.” – said the hip hop legend.
“What’s crazy Scoop, is that around that time, me, Tupac, Biggie, [Ice] Cube—all of the rappers that was rappin’ around that time, we was writing what we was living,” said Snoop. “Some of us was writing life and some of us was writin’ death, but that’s what we was living.” – Snoop continued.
