Since the release of The Notorious B.I.G.’s “I Got a Story to Tell” in ’97, hip-hop fans have been trying to figure out which Knicks player Biggie robbed for thousands of dollars when a night of infidelity turned into an unplanned heist.
Back in ’14, former Knick John Starks went on ESPN’s Highly Questionable with Dan Le Batard and Bomani Jones and squashed the rumor that Big’s “she get d*ck from a player on the New York Knicks” lyric was about him. Since then, Le Batard and Jones have been on the case to figure out who the player was.
On yesterday’s show, the hosts were joined by rapper and Knicks fan Fat Joe who spilled the beans on who was on the wrong side of Biggie’s pistol.
“I could tell you but I don’t want to be disrespectful,” said Joe. “It was about Anthony Mason. Rest In Peace.”
Mason passed away in February ’15 at the age of 48. The one-time all-star appeared in Diamond D’s “Best Kept Secret” video in ’92.
