N.O.R.E.’s Untold Biggie Secret

nore 8

This is crazy. On the death anniversary of Notorious B.I.G. on March 9th, his close friend N.O.R.E spoke to Radio.com and narrated an untold story about him.


In the Notorious biopic, 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. But that’s not it. He says that during the call, Biggie played Capone-N-Noreaga’s song ‘T.O.N.Y. (Top of New York)’ which was not released at that time, which left him surprised. 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 dropped a bomb.

“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.”

It’s unfortunate that he never made it to New York to finish the remix as he was shot by an unknown man on March 9, 1997 at around 12:45 am in Los Angeles. Rest in peace.
