MAY 21ST, 1972-MARCH 9TH, 1997
Today we remember the greatest emcee(arguably) of all, the Legendary Notorious BIG. It has been 13 years since Biggie was murdered. His death still hasn’t been solved, although many rumors have been speculated over the years (that’s what usually happens when an unsolved death occurs). I remember that Sunday morning, I was watching MTV and a news flash scrolled across the screen “The Notorious Big has been shot & killed in L.A.”, I was fkin shocked.
But I wont go on about Biggie’s death, today we celebrate his life, his music and his impact on the Hip Hop culture. As a dj, I love going into a Biggie set, the dance floor gets packed & everyone is reciting his lyrics. that’s what his music did to people. Regardless if some of his music was too explicit or too gangster for some people, it was the way Biggie rhymed and how he put it together & flowed over the music. Sometimes its not what you say, but how you say it, and Biggie definitely mastered that, and with only 2 official albums he is regarded as the best of all time. And today Sean “Diddy” Combs is throwing his first-ever Brooklyn bash as a tribute to his late friend, rapper Notorious B.I.G. The invite-only bash will honor the 13th anniversary of the death of Biggie and will be held at Bed-Stuy club The Lab. Diddy is also pushing for March 9th to become “Biggie Day,” a national hip-hop holiday.
So pull out ya Biggie Collection, or download my tributes and pay homage to the late great Biggie Smalls.
Rest in peace Big, you will never be forgotten.
