The Time Big Kap Tried To Sabotage Biggie’s Concert

By | 11 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=190047"> Even though we have been able to vicariously live through our fallen legend's classic works to salvage a piece of them, death still deprives us of those unique instances where the artist's persona was a key indicator in showing they were born to be great; born to be leaders. And in some cases, born to be comedians. A quick Hippity-Hop flashback to 1995 would automatically tell you that Bad Boy was on top, with The Notorious B.I.G. leading the charge. While he was known to have great stage performances, the same couldn't always be said for his DJ. Big Kap isn't of Biggie fame as much of he's renown for standing next to Funkmaster Flex. There's a reason for that. Imagine the euphoria that would have transpired from bumping a "Me and My Bitch (Computer Love Remix Live)" on a hot summer's night. We never experienced it because "DJ" Kap had the butterfingers on the turntables during San Fran KMEL's Summer Jam. Look at Biggie's playful yet still stern, thugged-out demeanor. He was a riot. Like <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/05/the-gift-of-gab-five-legendary-tupac-interviews">Pac in his interviews</a>, Biggie was as cool as fan in front of the camera.

Shame on the entire internet for acting like <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/03/still-notorious">March 9th</a> was the coming of a new moon and then getting convenient amnesia the preceding day.
