Jay-Z talks about Biggie Smalls conversation about wanting the two of them to move to Atlanta together during the year 1996.
“I’m like ‘we’re the hottest guys in New York City, like in the world, in the mecca. Why we going to Atlanta,'” Jay recalled thinking at the time. He added that Biggie’s foresight to see Atlanta as a place to be showed how much of a “visionary” he was.
“I wrote like four songs that night,” he added. “None of them was as good as ‘Who Shot Ya’ but it was still like four songs. It was just, again it was that friendly competition like just trying to push each other to be the best.”
In honor of Biggie’s 50th birthday, Lil Kim also hosted the 2nd Annual B.I.G. Dinner Gala in New York York, which was attended by the late rapper’s song, C.J. Wallace, Fat Joe, The LOX, Dave East, and more.
