(AllHipHop News) Easy Mo Bee may not have gotten the same level of acknowledgement on a mainstream level as other 1990’s producers, but Hip Hop heads recognize what the Brooklyn representative has done for the culture, particularly his work with The Notorious B.I.G.

Mo Bee also provided production for 2Pac’s Me Against The World. The legend sat down with Revolt to discuss his contribution to Pac’s third album which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this week. According to Easy, 2Pac reached out to him for tracks.
“He said, ‘I Like the stuff you did on Big’s album. I love that ‘Party and Bulls**t.’ When he said that I was bugging,” stated Mo Bee. “Because he’s from the West Coast. They got a whole different vibe.”
Mo Bee thought the tracks he produced with the Pac would all be for Me Against the World, but Pac split the songs between his solo LP, the Thug Life: Volume 1 group album, and The Show soundtrack.
Apparently, Biggie wanted those Mo Bee tracks for himself. The Bad Boy rhyme spitter approached Easy and spoke to him about missing out on the cuts that eventually became 2Pac’s “If I Die 2Nite” and “Temptations.”
“He stood next to me and said, ‘Mo, you’re wrong. You know you were supposed give me them Pac joints,'” said Easy before laughing. “[Biggie said,] ‘You know nothing gets passed me.'”
