Slim (112) Talks About Sampling Biggie on His New Single “Baby, Baby”

Slim explains what it was like to reconnect with The Notorious B.I.G. on his new single “Baby Baby.”

Slim: When they brought the song to me, as soon as I heard Biggie’s voice, “Baby, baby,” of course it was put in very cleverly. I was feeling real good, and I didn’t wanna be too serious but just to use his voice and to have a connection with him, first and foremost, B.I.G. will always be in my life forever…

When 112 moved to New York, he and Faith really embraced us and we learned a lot from him. He’s a big brother who will always be in my life so it was very important. If it wasn’t for anybody else, if anybody else said, “Oh we hate this song,” for me, it was a message because at the end of the day, it’s something that nobody could take away from me and I’m just blessed to have been able to know him.
