Diddy and late friend Biggie Small

In the Instagram video, Sean talks about how his wound has not healed even over 20 years and how Biggie was with people.
“He’s fed a lot of families, made a lot of people dance, made a lot of people feel good. On this day we’re going to reflect on him because we miss him, and 20 years later, time heals all wounds, but this one ain’t healed yet.”
Even after 20 years, Sean misses his friend and it seems that he has remembered his friend all this time, over good days and over bad days. Then he notes that Biggie has always been a big part of his life and has helped him in his career.
“This year is more of a sobering year. It’s 20 years. For us, we lived 20 years of our lives without somebody that has been a big part of our lives that has basically been responsible for the legend of our careers.”
