Jay Z Recalls Speaking to Notorious B.I.G. on Night of His Death
“He was in great spirits,” Jay said on Power 106’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood. “He was like, ‘Yo, playboy! Why you not out here, playboy? I was doing something in New York and yeah, yeah, I was supposed to land before. Actually Irv Gotti was at the party and called me and put him on the phone.”
Biggie was eventually slain that night in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997.
Despite his passing, Jay says he keeps his Brooklyn brother with him to this day. “I take him everywhere I go,” he said. “I’ve taken him on every step, every accomplishment. He’ll be there in some sort of way, whether that be live in concert or on record, or some acknowledgement.”
