(AllHipHop News) Late rapper Notorious B.I.G.’s friends and family assembled in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York over the weekend to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his timeless record Ready To Die.
The rapper’s mom Voletta Wallace and kids, CJ Wallace and T’yanna Wallace, were joined by his ex-girlfriend Lil Kim, rapper Rick Ross, and widow Faith Evans at the William Vale Hotel Westlight Lounge.
“He blew my mind,” Rick Ross told Billboard. “If Biggie were here right now, I wish I could tell him that. Even on the way here, we were just talking about how he’s the first rapper we heard to use the word ‘stupendous.’ The wordplay is next level. The flows are so grimy, yet so classic. He will live on.”
In addition to the celebration, several murals submitted by fans as part of the Biggie Inspires contest were put on exhibition in the venue and in Brooklyn.
