Yesterday (Mar. 9), rap fans everywhere put their differences aside and came together to pay tribute to a undisputed legend, Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G., on the 19th anniversary of his untimely death. The game's elite paid their respects all over social media, including one of Biggie's mentors and closest collaborators, Puff Daddy, who shared some rare footage of the late Brooklyn rapper to his Instagram. 

The first of the below clips is perhaps the most incredible -- studio footage of Biggie recording "Hypnotize," the single released just before his death, which would reach No. 1 in the country shortly after. 

The next video is of Big speaking on Puffy's belief in his star power, and the last of the below clips is of the Bad Boy emcee spitting lines from "Who Shot Ya?" during a live interview. 

Puff also didn't miss the opportunity to spend some solo time in front of the camera, as he announced the holiday and paid tribute to his fallen brother while Big's "Playa Hater," off the posthumous Life After Death album, plays in the background. 

What songs did y'all play to celebrate B.I.G. day?
