Music mogul Damon “Dame” Dash may have just dropped the biggest hip-hop shocker of all time. The former Roc-A-Fella Records co-owner revealed late rap icon Notorious B.I.G. planned on joining his record label.
In a recent interview, Dame Dash said Biggie Smalls wanted to eventually leave Bad Boy Records to join longtime pal Jay Z at the Roc.
“Biggie’s plan was to give Puff and them like three more albums because that’s what his deal is, then come sign with us, and we was gon’ do The Commission. We were looking for like a Charlie Baltimore, it ended up being her, that wasn’t our choice that was his. But, you know, that was what was gonna happen, or at least that’s what was talked about very seriously. I think that’s why he did a double album. Then he was gonna do a triple album, and he was gonna be out his contract, and then he was gonna come f*ck with us. I tried to sign The Firm but then Steve Stoute snaked us for that.” (Hip Hop Motivation)
Last week, rap veteran Nas shared some epic throwback Notorious B.I.G. pics.
Recently, Bad Boy Records boss Diddy remembered his late protégé on social media with some help from rappers Fabolous and Post Malone.
Last month, reports surfaced about a new Biggie Smalls documentary going into production by Submarine Entertainment and ByStorm Film.
The companies made the announcement on Monday at the Berlin Film Festival. The project will be directed by the Malloys (Emmett Malloy and Brendan Malloy) and made in collaboration with Notorious B.I.G.’s estate and his mother Voletta Wallace. Submarine and ByStorm Films will service as co-producers. Producers are the Malloys, David Koh, Dan Braun, Wayne Barrow, and Keith Miller. Executive producers are Wallace, Stanley Buchthal, Josh Taekman, Mark Pitts, and Josh Braun. (Variety)
