In addition to the music industry and his loyal fanbase remembering his life and legacy, DJ Tim Westwood treated us to not only one never-before-heard freestyle, but two. Yup, you read that correctly.
The UK-based DJ dug deep into his archives for these. And not only that, he also had the authentic audio footage mastered for the special occasion.
The first freestyle dates back to March 1995 and features Biggie, Puff Daddy and Craig Mack all blessing the mic. The second was recorded while the emcee was in London promoting his album, Life After Death.
Take a listen to the rare and previously unheard freestyles in the clip below courtesy of DJ Tim Westwood.
