Video: One More Chance (Live @ The Apollo) (Rare Footage) – The Notorious B.I.G.

Seems like yet another rare throwback performance of Biggie has surfaced. This performance is at the Apollo Theater with Puffy (yeah I went past tense with this one) playing hype man in his silk Versace shirt. As sad as this video makes me it still gets me hype to have known the man’s music BEFORE he passed away. Nuff respect due to WSHH.

Heart throb never/black & ugly as ever/however/I stay Coogi down to the socks/rings & watch filled with rocks

Aaliyah Dana Haughton
January 16, 1979 – August 25, 2001

I remember the day Aaliyah passed like it was yesterday. I bumped into my dude Briinx in Times Square after I got some food. “You heard Aaliyah died in a plane crash?”. I didn’t believe him since hood gossip couldve made that a reality. Sure enough when I got to home the news I prayed was false was reality. Today I wanted to pay homage by showing how a beautiful woman could stomp with the big dogs too. Still missing you Aaliyah.

Rest In Peace

Addendum:
Tonight there will be a candle light vigil for Aaliyah in Central Park, NYC for all who wish to attend.
