RIP and long live Hip Hop!

It’s been 18 years, RIP Biggie.

18 years ago today, the music industry lost a very important soul, The Notorious B.I.G.

The Notorious B.I.G, also known as Biggie was raised in Brooklyn, NYC. He became very well known when he brought out his debut album Ready To Die back in 94′.

B.I.G was in LA presenting an award to Toni Braxton at the Soul Train Music Awards back in March 1997. After the Awards, Biggie got into his SUV with his entourage and at a traffic light a few block away from where the Awards were being held at, a man pulled up next to them, rolled down his window and shot at Biggie 4 times. He was rushed to hospital, but only a few minutes after arriving at the hospital, he was announced dead.

I’d like to share my fave Biggie tune with you al and R.I.P big man!!!
