Mike D also talks about The Notorious B.I.G.'s passing.

Beastie Boys' Mike D recently spoke on the passing of The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac during an interview with Vanity Fair

"Yeah, he was 'Thug Life' and everything, but he was more of an artistic kid," Mike D says. "But basically he was so determined to be authentic, it ultimately killed him, which is a sad and tragic thing."  

Tupac was shot and killed in 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

During the interview, Mike D also spoke about The Notorious B.I.G.'s passing. 

"It was super surreal," he said. "It was like, 'What? Biggie got shot?' It just seemed like it couldn't be true."

The Notorious B.I.G. was shot and killed in Los Angeles, California in 1997.
