The Notorious BIG was shot to the ground minutes after their conversation

Host Vlad said Biggie was killed about 30 minutes after their conversation.

“It was crazy,” Tiny continued. “And I know just for Kandi, she was like, ‘I should have said something.’ It was crazy, like, surreal. I just felt like, I was glad I even got a chance to say and talk to him. You know, we got to talk and you know, he got to tell me how he felt. He apologized and then it was all good. ”

The rapper had been leaving the party when an unidentified man pulled up in a car and shot at him with a bullet, fatally injuring him, all Rolling Stone. His murder remains unsolved, at the time of writing.
