The video for the Notorious B.I.G.'s smash hit "Hypnotize" is as iconic as they come.
According to Puff Daddy, he and Big tried ecstasy for the first time when they shot it.
“Ah man, the video was fun,” Diddy reflected during Big's 50th birthday celebration. “That was like the first time we both tried ecstasy. I mean, it was an experience, you know what I’m saying? Ayo, Biggie’s 50. Check this out, we have nothing to hide. That was a long time ago… it was the first time. It was just a little nibble, it was all right. It was a little nibble. But we was in extra high, high spirits. Yeah, this breaking news and sh*t. F*ck it. On his 50th birthday, I wanna let y’all know that.”
Sadly, Biggie never got to see the final version of the video, which had a budget of around a million, as he was shot to death right before it dropped.
