During a Twitter Spaces conversation to celebrate what would have been Biggie’s 50th birthday, Diddy gave some juicy details behind Biggie’s “Hypnotize” video.
“Ah man, the video was fun,” Diddy reflected. “That was like the first time we both tried ecstasy. I mean, it was an experience, you know what I’m saying?" Diddy reflected.
“Ayo, Biggie’s 50. Check this out, we have nothing to hide. That was a long time ago… it was the first time. It was just a little nibble, it was all right. It was a little nibble. But we was in extra high, high spirits. Yeah, this breaking news and shit. Fuck it. On his 50th birthday, I wanna let y’all know that.”
Biggie's final album, Life After Death, included "Hypnotize" in March 1997. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 and was nominated for a 1998 Grammys.
