“I didn’t even know the n*gga like that, but the feeling I felt, it was like my best friend just died.”

Everything in the world is born and finds a means to live, but ultimately comes to an end, even if only for the time being.

Onyx member Fredro Starr has been bringing his Tales Of The Industry, which has ran through 12 crazy episodes ranging from beef with 50 Cent to Wu Tang to his encounters with the late Big Pun.

Closing out, the rapper reflects on those that have come and gone from his life as he speaks on his brief relationship with Notorious B.I.G. that was cut short as a result of the tragic shooting.

First being introduced to the late rapper during a studio session with Naughty By Nature and Onyx, the rapper openly admitted that first seeing the large silhouette of B.I.G. didn’t make either of the groups think too much of him as he stood next to Puff Daddy, but he easily changed their opinions.

“Back in the days, whoever could say the most f&$ked up Shyte, that’s what was hot.  Whoever could say the most grimiest Shyte.”

Something as gut wrenching as the word ‘Castration’ indicated to Starr that Biggie would be the biggest star in Hip Hop.

During the rise of Ready To Die and the preparation for Life After Death, Starr added that the two were able to quickly vibe off one another in the short time they had until the Vibe awards.
