A few hours ago, Biggie’s former mentor and Bad Boy Records boss Diddy shared some heartfelt moments. Puff Daddy revealed a couple throwback Biggie moments.

“Big was the perfect artist! This candid moment when BIG was having writers block. This only happened to him once. He was talking about retiring.

Then he went in and made ‘Hypnotize!’ True story #BadBoyForLife WE WILL NEVER STOP!!!! #WeMissYouBIG!”
