Layzie continued, “So the song was being made. It only took about five hours, too. We did our part. I was asleep in the limo. They woke me up. I did my shit just out of my sleep. Everybody thought they’d freestyle and all this type shit. Well, let me see you freestyle more than 16, 20 bars at a time.

“Anyway, Big was like, ‘I’m going to take this home, man’ and he stole my weed! He put my weed in his pocket. I’m like, ‘That’s a whole ounce, Big.’ He said, ‘Y’all got some good ass weed, yo.’ I’m like, ‘Man, give my muthafuckin’ weed back, Big.’ He’s like, ‘This yours?’ So, he gave me my weed back. We broke it in half, actually, and then this n-gga went home, took this song and died before he got to hear his verse.”

Biggie was shot and killed in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997 as he was promoting his forthcoming album, the aforementioned Life After Death. The murder remains unsolved.
