Yesterday, March 9th, marked the anniversary of the late great Notorious B.I.G.'s death. Twitter was full of fans and industry heads alike paying their homage; quoting verses, dropping the #ripbig hashtag, and sharing their favorite Biggie related memories.

Last night, former Editor-in-Chief of The Source Jonathan Schecter (@SheckyGreen) tweeted the story of the Source offices coming across Big Poppa's Unsigned Hype demo to watching his rise to stardom. The man had a story to tell, and if you followed him, you were in for a treat. If you missed it though, we thought it was so ill we re-capped the story right here for you. Read below for a wrap-up of his detailed tweets that give behind-the-scenes info on hearing "Juicy" for the first time, introducing him to Diddy, and Big's hesitation on signing to Bad Boy.
