Diddy and Notorious B.I.G.

The artist also urges fans to post videos of themselves rapping B.I.G.’s verses

Diddy – real name Sean John Combs – has been paying tributes to the Notorious B.I.G. today on his Twitter account.

Earlier today (9 March), the artist tweeted a video of himself asking fans to rap their favourite verses from the late icon with the hashtag #WeMissYouBIG.

Diddy will be turning this into a project: “I’m gonna chop it up, edit it up and everything. We’re gonna put out something special. For all the fans and friends and family involved. We’re celebrating Notorious B.I.G.’s life.”

He’s also posted a self-recorded video sharing his heartfelt thoughts on the 20th anniversary of B.I.G.’s death.

“This year is more of a sobering year,” he says. “For us, we lived 20 years of our lives without somebody that has been a big part of our lives – that has basically been responsible for the legend of our careers. He’s fed a lot of families, made a lot of people dance, made a lot of people feel good.”

He then goes on to say, “On this day, we’re gonna reflect on him because we miss him. 20 years later. Time heals all wounds. This one ain’t healed yet.”

Check out the two clips below and get rapping. #WeMissYouBIG.
