Notorious B.I.G.'s Pepsi and St. Ides Commercials (OLD SCHOOL)

I stumbled across this Biggie video randomly the other day. You can never go wrong with some old and rare Biggie verses, so hear you go. I don't even know what year this Pepsi commercial is from but I assume it was probably around 1994-1995 right when B.I.G. was blowing up but not quite at his peak. The crazies thing about it is that he absolutely crushed it on a radio ad talking about a freakin' soda!!! Are you kidding me? This is a perfect example of why this dude was arguable the greatest of all time. He always brought the heat and never half-assed one rhyme. "Call me evil, or unbelievable."

Even though it seems strange to hear one of the best rappers ever doing a radio spot, it was actually fairly common to hear the best rappers of the 90's like Wu Tang Clan, Ice Cube and Snoop jumping on a beat to do TV and radio commercials for products like St. Ides malt liquor.

B.I.G. absolutely crushed it on this one rapping over The Dogg Pound's "New York, New York" beat. SICK!

Here are a few of the other St. Ides ads I was able to find.  It's ridiculous how many sick rappers they were able to land for these spots.  Ah, the good old days!!!
