Who Knew Peter Thomas Was With Notorious B.I.G. Minutes Before His Death? [VIDEO]

Apr 19th 2012 | Written by ATLien

Entrepreneur Peter Thomas catches mad flack on The Real Housewives of Atlanta for his blunt responses and is mostly viewed as Cynthia Bailey‘s disgruntled husband these days.

Thomas is very well known around town as the owner/operator of Bar One and previous other spots like the now defunct Uptown Supper Club, but did you know Peter was a part of hip-hop history?

Back in 1997, Thomas was a popular concert promoter and he was apparently with Christopher Wallace (aka Notorious B.I.G.) just minutes before he died.

Peter was even interviewed during coverage of Biggies death the day he died, March 9, 1997.

Watch flashback footage of the abc news (Peter appears at 1:45 and is introduced at 2:20)…
