Six months after 2Pac's death, The Notorious B.I.G. went to Californa and did a radio interview which rubbed a lot of folks the wrong way.
Pac's Outlawz bro Napoleon was one of the folks who felt a way about Big's words and how he said them and Napoleon believes all of that contributed Big's death in Los Angeles a few days later.
“I think that was a very miscalculated step on his part, you know what I mean?” Napoleon said on The Art Of Dialogue. “I think he underestimated the people’s love for ‘ac. And I think it was a little arrogant, to be honest. Of course, I, we don’t wish death on nobody. And I’m not saying that this is what he gets. These not the words I’m saying but, I know I heard the radio.”
“I remember listening to the radio station and the phone calls that was coming in, the threats” he continued. “Like people was threatening him. I think they asked him, ‘How you feel about Pac?’ and it was almost from an arrogant standpoint of view where he was like, ‘You know I got my own problems, I’m not worried about dude’ or something like that, and the people took it as a form of disrespect. So I think for him, it was a little arrogant and it was disrespectful. No doubt it was disrespectful. You gotta understand the simple code of the street."
Napoleon went on to say if Biggie had shown more love to Pac he might still be alive.
