Freshco Shares Memories of Working with The Notorious B.I.G. (Video)

For those who don’t know: Freshco (aka Shawn Conrad) is FIRE on a mic! I’ll post my all-time fav joint from him after the jump. But for now, take my word if you have no other reason to care. Then click play and consider that Biggie mostly worked with microphone masters back in the day. And he wanted to put something down with Freshco. That ought to tell you something!

But let me tell you something… Freshco has a previously unreleased track featuring himself and the Notorious B.I.G.! However, the lionshare of Freshco’s talk is about memories of B.I.G., not that track.

Come back with me to 1993 when Biggie and I met and did some music together. Before the Tupac beef. Before the King of New York.

The Legendary ‘Daddy-O’ Shares A Few Memories & Rare Stories About The Notorious Biggie Smalls (Video)

There is a reason I love to hear from the OG’s in the game and this interview with Daddy-O is a prime example of why.  LiveHipHopDaily invited legendary Daddy-O (emcee, producer, Stetsasonic) to the studio and he shares some rarely heard stories about Biggie Smalls.  I can’t remember watching a 3 minute interview packed with this many jewels and gems about the late great Biggie.  First Daddy-O explains how they lived blocks away from each other and how Lance “Un” Rivera (producer) would tell him about Biggie & Jr. Mafia but Daddy-O explains they were just kids in the neighborhood at the time.  He goes into the origin of Jr Mafia and how Big walked into a studio with no pen and paper but crafted timeless rhymes.  He explains Biggie’s thought process when he played his verse for Player’s Anthem & Real Love remix both recorded at Daddy-O studio.  Enjoy this gem of an interview and Pt.2 is after the jump!
