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!!!
One of my favorite songs in spanish is Persiana Americana by Soda Stereo.
Soda Stereo were an argentinian rock band and are considered one of the most important and influential bands of all time; Latin American legends!
Formed in 1982 in Buenos Aires by Gustavo Cerati, Zeta and Charly Alberti. They were the first latin rock band to achieve success in South, North and Central America.
In May 2010, Cerati was rushed to hospital to which a few days later we all found out he had a cerebrovascular accident. Since the 15th May 2010 until this morning people from all over the world had hope that Gustavo would make it through, unfortunately, at around 9am local time, the singer passed away as a result of respiratory failure.
