Classic Material: BIGGIE & Jay-Z Performing "Get Money" (1996)

This is basically why we have a section called Classic Material. BIGGIE performing "Get Money" with Jay-Z as his hype man back in '96. This all happened at Ralph McDaniels birthday party. Peep his run down below.

“I wanted to get B.I.G. to host [it], but really I wanted him to perform. Jay-Z came with the whole Roc-A-Fella crew and they got on stage. I told the DJ, ‘If Biggie gets on stage, play a Biggie song and we’ll get him to perform.’ DJ Ace threw on ‘Get Money’ and the whole crowd went crazy. B.I.G. looks at me like, ‘I guess I’m supposed to perform now, right?’ Jay-Z plays hypeman to B.I.G. on ‘Get Money.’ That just rang through the hood forever.”
