Classic Video: Notorious B.I.G. x Jay-Z perform ‘Get Money’

The fine folks at Fuse have unearthed vintage footage of the late, great Notorious B.I.G., all Coogi’d up and with champagne bottle in hand, performing the classic single “Get Money” at Hip-Hop pioneer “Uncle Ralph” McDaniels‘ 1996 birthday party. Who played his hypeman, you ask? Why, none other than his good friend and fellow MC Jay-Z.

For those of us old enough to remember, this is one of those videos that takes us back. I was in high school, Bad Boy was runnin’ this rap shit, Roc-A-Fella was a strong team prepping to put their first album, Reasonable Doubt, into the mix with Outkast‘s ATLiens, UGK‘s Ridin’ Dirty, NasIt Was Written and the other albums that would eventually be deemed classics that were released that year — it was all good 16 years ago. I miss those days.

Anyway, check out two of Brooklyn’s finest having a good ol’, champagne-fueled time below.
