Biggie Smalls I Got A Story To Tell Mystery Solved


Back in 1997 the late Notorious B.I.G. released a track called 'I Got a Story to Tell' about a man caught creeping with a professional basketball players' girlfriend who pulls off a fake robbery after the ball player walks in on them.

It's always been known that ' I Got a Story to Tell' was based on a true story and now we know who the ballplayer was...

Fat Joe tells sports show Highly Questionable the infamous ballplayer was NY Knicks Anthony Mason.

Biggie was ugly and fat, I doubt any dimes were creeping with biggie. If anything, biggie sic' da hooker/ prostitue on Anthony to rob him anyway. And look where Biggie is at now, murderer and sitting six feet under. Rap is cool artistically but let's stop glorifying filthy thug lifestyles.

I don't think rat chicks from NY care, if a guy's got some $$ they gonna make it do what it do. The girl code up that way is different.

So it was a true story?

He coulda picked anyone but Mason to tell this lie about. Mason never backed down and wouldnt be the one to let it slip if he had anything remotely similar happen to him. He would have been sure to see Big about this the minute he heard the song. Fat Joe lying on two dead guys for relevance. Fail.

Fat Joe initially says confidently it was Anthony Mason, but then quickly points out that rappers lie a lot and most of what they are say is for entertainment.

Secondly, towards the end he admits he heard it secondhand as a “rumor”, not from Biggie himself.

I like to live in a world of common sense and logical. It is highly unlikely that Biggie after sleeping with Anthony Mason’s lady, pretending to rob her and stealing a bunch of Mason’s money, would have had the audacity to admit the crime via a song.-Robert Littal

So…who was it? Well, we’ll let Fat Joe tell it:

It was about Anthony Mason, rest in peace. I mean, it’s been, like, that was the, you know, that was like…It was about Ant Mason. Ant Mason’s my brother. I love Ant Mason. But you got to also know that rap is entertainment. So we stretch the truth. We change things up. We lie. We stretch things.
After Fat Joe gave his answer, Le Batard asked him to confirm that Biggie was, in fact, talking about Anthony Mason:

What I heard—calm down—what I heard was it was about Anthony Mason. That was the rumor. That was a very strong possibility rumor it was about Anthony Mason. Rest in peace because Ant Mason is one of my favorite Knicks ever.

@9:06 am Biggie married faith. He had swag. Sometimes that's more than having someone who's just eye candy
