In XXL's recent sit-down with Lil Cease, the rapper reveals plans of a joint LP between hip-hop heavyweights The Notorious B.I.G. and the late Heavy D. "There was an immediate bond," Lil Cease said. 

“After Big took off, it was hard for them to set up the schedules,” Lil Cease said. “But, Big always had the idea in his head like, ‘Yo, you know what? Me and Hev doing something together.’ The relationship was there being around the whole Uptown situation. It was a unit, everybody was a family up there; Mary [J.] Blige, Jodeci, Christopher Williams — it was that bond. Him and Big was gonna try to put something together. That’s why they were doing all those records together [and trying to get] a vibe off each other.”

Though Biggie blew up on such a grandiose level, he and Hev managed to record three songs together, most notably "Let's Get it On" with verses Grand Puba and 2Pac
