A few years ago TheUrbandaily.com conducted a candid interview with Kandi Burruss of RHOA where she recalled meeting the late Notorious B.I.G. before he was killed. In her interview she said that Biggie apologized for comments he made about her group Xscape in his underground hit “Dreams (I’m Just Playin.”).
