Faith Evans, Lil Cease and Maino Celebrate The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Legacy” in New Video
Last month marked the 20th anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.'s tragic and untimely death, and folks around the hip-hop community still feel the loss—especially those closest to him.
They feel the impact of his death, but that doesn't stop them from celebrating his life, and that's exactly what Faith Evans, Lil Cease and Maino do in Faith's new video for "Legacy," a collaboration with her late husband.
The new visual combines old footage of Biggie and Faith kicking it with new footage of the singer, Cease and Maino mouthing the lyrics to Biggie's verses. In the clips, everything there was to love about Big Poppa once again becomes crystal clear. He's laughing and joking, and his effortless charisma shines through.
For much of the video, Faith, who rocks a Seville Michelle gold choker and a blonde bob, posts up in front of moving images of B.I.G. and takes a stroll through what appears to be Brooklyn streets.
The track is from The King & I, a duet album Faith's put together with her late husband, from whom she split before his death. Still, they were still cool in the days leading up to his demise, as Biggie indicates in a clip at the very beginning of the video.
"I mean, we ain't together no more, but she just had a baby for me. We cool though, we tight," Big says in the clip. You can check out the video for yourself below. You can pre-order Faith and Big's duet album, which drops on May 19, here.
