– The last song Biggie recorded was Victory from Puffy’s No Way Out, which at the time was titled Hell Up In Harlem. It was recorded on March 8th, 1997, one day before he was killed.
– Victory was a subliminal diss at Nas.
– Victory was originally titled “The Commission”
- Biggie's last verse was a [reference] track for Puffy, thus this must be imagined rapped by Puffy.. Biggie indeed wrote this verse for Puff, but he didn’t quite understand it. He said he was confused about the whole “Island Cayman” part and was asking Biggie what is that about and what does it mean. Possibly, that’s why it ended up being Biggie’s verse (and because he died and they wanted to use as much material as possible).
The video is also a reference to the Arnold Schwarzenegger film, The Running Man.
