From the dusty attic of Hip Hop comes this rare slice of Biggie history, thanks to British youth program Passenger. A TV series back in the nineties, Passenger was broadcast on Channel 4 and was a window into street culture for those watching safely at home.
This particular episode from 1995 is an introduction to Christopher Wallace the “rags to riches rapper” (their words), with the big man talking about his crack rock slinging youth, racial strife and other personal insights. Featuring appearances from Lil’ Kim, Puff Daddy, Junior M.A.F.I.A, a completely baked Faith Evans and his moms, Voletta Wallace, who hilariously steals the show.
