Back in 1995, Passengers, a youth-orientated show on Channel 4 in the UK, traveled to Brooklyn to profile Biggie. Riding the double-platinum success of his debut album, Ready to Die, Christopher Wallace returned to the spot where he used to sling crack rock, went jewelry shopping, stayed strapped in the studio, and performed at the 1995 L.A. Summer Jam, when things between the East and West Coasts were heating up. Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace, “Little” Kim and a blunt-puffing Faith Evans all make appearances.
Bun B finally makes his way to Juan Epstein and man this was a treat. There is so much history here from classic Pimp C stories to Biggie & Jay-Z. Relax and Listen!

In conjunction with the release of the DC x Wu-Tang 20 Year Anniversary Collection, which celebrates the anniversary of the groundbreaking album “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers),” DC is proud to present, “STREETS & BOARDS & BEES & SWORDS,” a short film which follows the parallel stories of one album’s effect on the music and skate industries and the simultaneous launch of a brand onto the skate scene that forever changed footwear. The film is told through interviews with the icons that paved the way, and chronicles the common thread amongst underdogs and visionaries… Musicians, skateboarders and forward thinkers alike must believe in themselves and break the rules in order to change the world.
