Jadakiss looks back at his relationship with The Notorious B.I.G.
Jadakiss was the recent guest on The Starting Five podcast, where The LOX’s emcee looked back at his relationship with The Notorious B.I.G., and how he never wanted to give each other appreciation for their art.
“We had this thing where we couldn’t talk about each other’s craft or we couldn’t say how dope we were to each other,” he said. “Like, ‘Let’s talk about anything else except that.’ He was super down to earth. I mean, unbelievably down to earth.”
“You could come into his session, he always wanted to make you a drink, he thought he was a bartender. ‘Playboy, you drinking?’ He wanted to make your drink for you, not like tell somebody, ‘Cease, make him a drink.’” “He’d get the ice, get the stirrers, all that. He’d wanna make you a Malibu, so he was just extra golden,” he added.
Jadakiss recalls the moment when the late Notorious B.I.G. surprised him at his 20th birthday celebration in 1995. Jadakiss asked Biggie if he would perform at the party. According to Jadakiss, Biggie’s response was “Yeah, where’s it at?'” Him and Lil’ Cease come in. They stayed for the whole night with me, popping mad bottles. He made the party escalate times a hundred.”
