N.O.R.E. Reveals Notorious B.I.G. Secret
"I watched the movie [Notorious] a couple of times," N.O.R.E. told Radio.com. "The only part that made me cry was when he was making those phone calls. I was one of those phone calls."
In the scene, Biggie placed calls to several of his loved ones. While the call to N.O.R.E. was omitted on screen, he remembers it well. When Big called, he played "T.O.N.Y. (Top of New York)," which was an unreleased song of Capone-N-Noreaga's at the time.
"I wasn't honored that Big called me playing 'T.O.N.Y.,' I was like 'How the f*** you get that?' I'm thinking it's bootlegged. Big Took like five minutes before he answered."
After delighting in N.O.R.E.'s anxiety about his unreleased song, Biggie explained that he was sitting next to the song's producer Nasheem Myrick. He then dropped the bomb on him.
