I’ve been collecting music my whole life and this pandemic has me itching to do my next #collaboration project. – – I’m excited to announce that on May 14th, here on #Instagramlive I will be doing a session of my most rare #biggiesmalls aka #notoriousbig demos and freestyles. I have one of the most complete collections of his #recordings that exists and I will be playing early versions that many people have never heard before.
