On Sunday (April 26) seasoned producer Statik Selektah debuted a never before heard verse from The Notorious BIG.
“Some new Biggie for you? (Bored on a Sunday). Even the biggest Notorious fans prob don’t know this verse.” he wrote on his Instagram, before thanking creative director Joe Lyons for the “reminder.”
Lyons revealed via IG that he will be doing a special session of his most rare Biggie Smalls demos and freestyles on May 14th. If you are a huge fan and collector of Biggie’s music you likely have heard most of these tracks,” he disclaimed, “But tune in for a trip down memory lane to the early ’90s when #nychiphop ruled.”
A lot of you may (or may not) know that I have a background in the music industry which dates back to college when I was Dj-ing. 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.

If you are a huge fan and collector of Biggie’s music you likely have heard most of these tracks, but tune in for a trip down memory lane to the early 90s when #nychiphop ruled – – Mark your calendars and tag your friends
