DJ Clark Kent Remembers the Last Conversation He Had with The Notorious B.I.G.
The year 1997 was one of the most eventful years in hip-hop history. Consider what swirled around The Notorious B.I.G. who died that year on March 9th, but then posthumously put out one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time, Life After Death.
Puma and Coogi recently launched a two-part collection that honored Biggie. For the occasion, Puma threw a 1997-themed party with the legendary DJ Clark Kent.
The folks at Nice Kicks were at the party and caught up with Clark Kent to reminisce about the music, culture, and clothes of 1997. The highlight of the interview came when Clark Kent revealed the last conversation he had with Biggie, which came minutes before he was gunned down in Los Angeles.
“Ten minutes before he got killed, we were together talking about going to Europe. Ten minutes! We go outside, his car goes one way, my car goes the other way. You hear gun shots and when you’re from New York and you hear that, you drive off. But his car is at the light and I don’t know it’s his car. The last conversation I had with him was about going to Europe and I told him I couldn’t because I just got this new job running Mo Town Records. Biggie said, ‘Fuck that!’ So I turned around to my boss who was actually there and let him know I needed to go on tour with BIG. Then ten minutes later, my homie is no more.”
The entire interview is pretty strong. Head to Nice Kicks and read the entire thing.
