Video: Biggie’s Final Party

From all firsthand accounts, the 1997 party was legendary. Everyone danced the night away and popped bottles. Big’s “Hypnotize” spun incessantly. No one had any idea that tragedy awaited them. Footage of the party has recently surfaced on the Net, and true to the stories from 12 years ago, heavy revelry abounds.

More than seven minutes from an amateur recording of the party show highlights such as Puff Daddy dancing to “All About the Benjamins” surrounded by a circle of women, along with various crowd shots of stars such as Missy Elliott, Irv Gotti, DJ Klark Kent, DJ Clue, Chris Tucker and Ginuwine. The party spinner, identified as DJ Ace, shouts out people such as Da Brat, Aaliyah and Jermaine Dupri. A note at the bottom of the screen said Biggie himself refused to be videotaped.

While the party was in L.A., the time on the tape seems to be in Eastern Time. Big left the party at 12:30 a.m. and was pronounced dead at 1:15 a.m., but the video has everyone partying at 1:30 a.m. The party was actually shut down before that because it was too crowded.

“Rest In Peace to Tupac” – Ed Lover @ 5:58min

Whoever put this together analyzed the tape like he was the FBI, even caught a glimpse of Chris Tucker walking around.
