BIG TRIBUTE COVER

March 9th is the day when we lost the late great “Francis M.H.” 12 years ago…and lucky me, my born day follows right after on March 10th. So today is always the bitter before the sweet for me….Someone asked me recently if there was anyone out there that I wish I could interview that I never had a chance to…and there’s no question: I wish I had a chance to talk to Big again, but  “inside the rapper’s studio” style…never was there a more charismatic multi-layered fellow.

Drama and Cookin’ Soul put together this new project in honor of Biggie Day featuring folks like Styles P, Jean Grae, Emilio Rojas, Nipsey Hussle and more remaking Big classics…Thank you to both Drama and CS for reaching out….
