Dream Hampton Tweets on Notorious B.I.G.

Dream Hampton (@dreamhampton) was one of my absolute favorite hip-hop writers from the old school Source Mind Squad. She had a particularly tight rapport with Pac and Big (her stories on Pac were a big reason why I wanted to be a hip-hop journo in the first place).

Today, in honor of B.I.G.'s B-day, she is tweeting several favorite memories of B.I.G. You can peep them all at

A few of my favorites:

On Big & Pac's relationship, pre-beef:

On Big's beef's with NYC rappers:
