In a recent episode of UPROXX’s new series, People’s Party hosted by Talib Kweli, the Black Star MC chopped it up with Bun B about hip hop, politics and many stories they’ve experienced throughout their lifetimes. At one point of the interview, Bun shared a memory about when he and the late Pimp C first met Biggie.
“He was like, ‘I f*** with y’all,’” Bun said. “We said, ‘We f*** with you, too.’ I said, ‘We finna go outside and smoke if you wanna smoke.’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, cool I’ll come. I’ll smoke.'” The three rappers got in the car, with Pimp C in the driver’s seat, Bun on the passenger’s seat and BIG in the back. Considering there was room in the front, Bun offered BIG the front seat. “He was like, ‘Nah, I’m gonna chill in the back.’”
Bun also states that BIG didn’t want to close the door when the rapper’s were trying to hotbox the car. “He’s like, ‘Nah, I need the air. I gotta keep the door open.’” Bun said, “It wasn’t until later that I realized that he didn’t want to sit in the front seat because he didn’t want anybody sitting behind him. He didn’t want the door closed in case he needed to bounce because he didn’t know us like that. I had even more respect for him as a man outside of the music. Like, okay, I see that man moves in a real way out there.”
