(AllHipHop News) Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams paid homage to revered rapper Biggie Smalls just recently, by officially making May 21st “Christopher ‘The Notorious BIG’ Wallace Day.”
Today officially honors the Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn native, who was gunned down in an unsolved drive-by shooting in March of 1997.
Borough President Eric Adams said Biggie is very deserving of the accolades.
“Brooklyn salutes one of our own, who has never been forgotten as long as his music plays,” Adams remarked. “On his birthday, his energy will remain and continue to inspire people throughout not only the borough of Brooklyn but Biggie put Brooklyn on the map.”
Biggie’s daughter T’yanna Wallace and Lil Cease were present at the ceremony, where loved ones shared memories of the rapper’s dominance of the airwaves in New York and worldwide.
The distinctive day comes on the heels of the opening show of Diddy’s “Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour” at the Barclays Center.
The tour started last night (May 20) and featured some acts from most of Bad Boy’s fabled roster.
In addition to Diddy, French Montana, Faith Evans, Lil Kim, Nas and Jay Z hit the stage for the first show of “The Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour.”
