The Notorious B.I.G. and Jay Z were all set to team up at Roc-A-Fella Records, according to Dame Dash. In a new interview with Hip Hop Motivation, Dame claimed that Biggie was planning to leave Bad Boy Records.

“Biggie’s plan was give Puff and them like three more albums then come sign with us, and we was gon’ do The Commission,” Dame says around the 6:30 mark of the video below. “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. He was gonna do a triple album, and he was gonna be out his contract, and then he was gonna come fuck with us.”

The Notorious B.I.G.’s untimely death prevented us from ever seeing if this was true, but his legacy lives on through his music. One of Biggie’s peers, the Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon, recently spoke to XXL about what the late MC meant to the rap game.

“What B.I.G. meant to hip-hop is that he was one of the dudes that came from nothing and turned into something,” says The Chef. “His talent exceeded everything. He knew how to rhyme. He knew how to freestyle. He knew how to make songs. He was clever. Had a lot of metaphorical shit. More importantly, he was representing New York to the fullest.”

XXL also got to talk with Ghostface Killah and Cam’ron about Biggie, so make sure to check out those conversations if you have not already. You can hear Dame’s memories of The Notorious B.I.G. below.
