Mary J. Blige Recalls Working With The Notorious B.I.G. On “One More Chance”

blame it on Meka September 16, 2014

As we all know by now, this past Saturday (September 13th) marked the 20th anniversary of Biggie’s seminal debut album Ready To Die. However, the once-overlooked seventh track on the album got a major facelift several months later, thanks to a DeBarge sample, some smooth new lyrics from the Notorious B.I.G., and a melodic hook thanks to Faith Evans and Mary J. Blige. Speaking to REVOLT as a part of their tribute show, “Ready To Die 20: Still the Illest,” Mary opens up working with both Puff and the fallen emcee, as well as speaking on the overall morose theme of B.I.G’s first album.

Take a trip down memory lane, with what seems like one of the best house parties that ever went down (next to the epicness that was Kid ‘N Play’s) below.
