Watch a Rare 1995 Documentary About Biggie and Then Listen to Jimmy Page's Mash-Up of "Ramble" With "Hypnotize"

Back in 1995, a British television show called Passengers did a documentary on The Notorious B.I.G. and now that episode has resurfaced on the web. The show followed the rapper and his Junior M.A.F.I.A. crew through the streets of Brooklyn and included an interview with Biggie's beloved mother Voletta Wallace, who said she believed his "Juicy" lyric "Christmas missed us" was untrue in her eyes. Lil Kim and Diddy make cameo appearances, as well. The doc also focuses on the tensions generated by the East Coast-West Coast beef, including a paranoia-inducing trip to California for a performance at L.A. Summer Jam and the reveal that he had his wife Faith Evans keep a gun in her purse. 

Speaking of Biggie ephemera that could only pop up on the Internet, Jimmy Page of the legendary rock group Led Zeppelin has released a remix of "Hypnotize." The track is a mash-up of Big's hit with Led Zep's "Ramble On." Biggie's vocals have sounded perfect over unexpected instrumentals throughout the years, and this mash-up is no exception. Listen on Page's website.
