In today’s side eye news –self proclaimed Hollywood medium, Tyler Henry, claims to make contact with rap queen Lil’ Kim’s late soulmate –Biggie.
For those living on Mars, Christopher ‘Notorious Big/Biggie’ Wallace was a Brooklyn born rapper who has consistently been ranked as one of the greatest and most influential rappers of all time. He also founded the group Junior M.A.F.I.A. in which Lil’ Kim became the breakout international rap star. During the time, Biggie and Kim were also carrying on a torrid love affair while Biggie was married to soul singer, Faith Evans. Kim always claimed Biggie as her own man, despite his nuptials to another woman.
Prior to his death, Biggie was heavily involved in the growing East Coast–West Coast hip hop feud with rapper Tupac Shakur and Death Row records.
On March 9, 1997, Wallace was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. His shooter is still unknown.
Personally, I don’t know how to feel about mediums because I’ve never spoken to one, but I do think this guy was privy to the same information that WE ALL were about Kim & Big’s “situationship.” I mean I didn’t feel like he stated any facts that we didn’t already know but whatever. Let the guy work.
Check out the clip, what do you think? Are mediums real or real phony?

Anyone who commits crimes on church grounds does not deserve a place to breathe in the free world. That’s just my personal opinion.
Lock these kind of people up away from the general population and toss the keys.
