London hip hop radio personality Tim Westwood recently gifted the world with this rare footage from 1995 of Biggie demonstrating why he's the greatest to ever pick up a mic, while Diddy (back then known as Puff Daddy) helps hype the performance.

Biggie performs legendary hits from "Ready to Die", including "Who Shot Ya" and "Gimme The Loot."

While watching the vid, reflect on the fact that March 9 marks the 16th anniversary of Biggie's death.
