Lil Cease Says The Car Biggie Was Killed In Belongs In A Museum

Earlier today we brought you an interview with Gary Zimet, the gentleman who’s selling the cars in which Biggie Smalls and Tupac were killed. Now it’s time for another point of view, and who better to speak on the matter than James Lloyd, aka Lil Cease, a member of Bedford-Stuyvesant’s own Junior M.A.F.I.A. (Masters At Finding Intelligent Attitudes). We already know that Zimet’s company Moments in Time has no qualms about selling off these morbid artifacts, but Biggie’s right hand man sees things a little differently.

The Brooklyn rapper who gained mainstream attention for his flawless verse on “Player’s Anthem” and released The Wonderful World of Cease A Leo on Atlantic in 1999, was riding in the 1997 GMC Suburban when it was riddled with bullets after a VIBE magazine party on March 9, 1997. So it’s not surprising that Cease has some strong opinions on the upcoming sale.

Here’s what the Lil Cease had to say:

Yeah, I heard about that [sale of the car]. I thought that was kinda corny. Like, who would wanna…? I wouldn’t wanna sit that car again. I wouldn’t want it. If it was something that would be in a museum or something, for somebody to see that’s something totally different but to expose that for somebody to sell and buy like… What are you gonna do? You gonna sit and ride in that car knowing somebody died in the seat? I didn’t really get that, you know?

I’m definitely not a fan of that idea, but I understand the day we live in. Today, we live in shock value and social media. I think everybody just wants to do things for attention and to go viral and for blogs but who would want to sit in that car? I know none of my friends or none of my peoples would want to sit in that car, or buy that car. Know what I mean? I thought that was just kind of wack. It’s just something that I feel would just taint things. It don’t make the 20th [anniversary] no good to hear that. Like, this is what people try to do 20 years later? Sell the car he got shot in? But you know, it is what it is. It’s the business. It’s the world we live in. Gotta just take the grain with the salt, that’s how I look at it. You know, to each his own. You know, whoever owned it… It was a rental that we had from out there. So whoever trying to auction that off, putting that out now trying to make money.

In an effort to remember the good times on this day, we’re gonna leave you with this Lil Kim classic featuring Lil Cease and The Notorious B.I.G. himself.
