The Notorious B.I.G. Last Concert At Sting in Jamaica (12/26/1996) Unreleased Footage with a Copy of the Signed Contact with ant rights as per agreementt!

On 12/26/1996 Biggie Smalls performed at the Sting Concert in Jamaica in a wheelchair, which would unfortunately be his last ever concert before being murdered.

Offered here is the unreleased, never-before-seen, almost perfect quality concert footage shot at the time. With different angles and awesome shots of Biggie.

Sting, first held in 1984, was the last International stage that Biggie performed on. In 1996, the annual Boxing Day bash played host to a sold-out crowd of 24,000, along with the top names in Reggae & Dancehall Music. Biggie, who had broken his leg in a car accident a couple of months earlier, performed in a wheelchair as his leg was still in a cast.

The original footage has been unreleased and is being offered here for the first time. One of the most important concerts to ever be performed in Hip-Hop on the 50th Anniversary.

The lot also comes with a copy of the agreement Biggie Signed with Sting.

The full running time of the tape is 16 minutes and 53 seconds.

The master tape is included and holds all the camera angles from the performance. The original format is BETACAM SP. The performance was a 5-camera shoot that was edited simultaneously to create this single master copy.

Consignor has requested for after the auction, to be able to use these clips as follows for personal projects: INTRO TO JUICY SONG

Approx :20 seconds, 4:35-4:55 Begins with “Y’all ready for this joint..” Ends with “You know how we do, It’s all good baby baby”

Approx :25, 15:10-15:35 Begins with “Throw your mothaf__king hands in the air..” Ends with “Yeah, where you at yo, yeah”

“Biggie believed he was Jamaican, so he wanted to come here and perform. The first thing he asked for when he came was 'the good ganja weed',” Laing (the creator and promoter of Sting) said with a chuckle. “He arrived in Jamaica on the day of the show, stayed overnight at the Pegasus hotel and flew out the following day”.
