(AllHipHop News) One of the most eerie facts is that the Notorious B.I.G.’s only two albums released while he was alive focused on death. However, during an interview with the L.A. Leakers on Biggie’s birthday (May 21st), Ma$e revealed how he used his music to help others deal with a frightening plane ride.
According to Ma$e, Biggie used his Ready To Die album to help people deal with the very real possibility that they could die during a shaky private jet flight:
One time everybody was on the plane and the plane start shaking. It was everyone’s first time on a private jet. We all from the ghetto, we don’t know about no private jets. So we on a private jet and the joint just started shaking. Everybody getting scary, cause the the plane is shaking like it’s about to crash. Then Biggie puts his head down with his hoodie on and pulls out his CD….Ready To Die. [Laughs] Everybody started laughing and it just made the whole trip better.
Ma$e also discussed how the creation of his Bad Boys Record debut, 1997’s Harlem World was like being a “rookie on a championship team”.
