Puffy Talks About Video Tribute To Biggie

May 9 [10:00 EST] -- In the weeks since the death of the Notorious B.I.G., his friend and partner Sean "Puffy" Combs has been mourning his loss, but also turning his grief into something more concrete: a two-sided tribute single to Biggie. [Puffy Video, 1.2MB QuickTime]

Puffy executive produced the Lox's "We'll Always Love You Big Poppa," the video for which was shot April 23 in New York.

This past week, MTV News caught up with Puffy as he taped the video for the single's other tune, "I'll Be Missing You."

Puffy turned to the Police classic "Every Breath You Take" for the musical foundation of "I'll Be Missing You," which Combs sees as a natural fit.

The double-sided single hits radio next Tuesday and will be in stores May 23 with proceeds going to Biggie's family.

The Lox, by the way, are also featured on Puffy's next single, "It's All About The Benjamins," which comes out in June.
