Throwback Thursdays: Notorious B.I.G. "Warning" BTS [Unreleased Interview]
As long as we’re in Behind the Music mode and talking about Gs of ATs, this unreleased (and unedited) interview with the Notorious B.I.G. from the set of the “Warning” video shoot surfaced on the web yesterday, like an anti-hologram just reminding us that NaS and Tupac had company on rap’s top tier back in them days. Cast your mind back to 1994 to hear the Big One expound on suicidal tendencies, East/West conflict, his name change and more–he even shares some baby pictures. Full of awkward Q&A (Q: What was you thinkin’? A: Jus’ Wil’in. Q: Oh, word?) and unlooked-for gems of musical insight (did you know BIG’s personal favorite jam on Ready To Die was “Everyday Struggle“? Me neither). Puff takes a turn in front of the camera as well, before we get some actual making-of behind the scenes of the classic “Warning” vid in this 11-minute reel, our Throwback Thursday for the week.
