this day in history 1997

No Biggie

Time to pour a forty on the curb and then be immediately reprimanded by a passing community support officer for throwing beer all over the town centre. Today marks the passing of one of Hip Hop’s true greats: Christopher Wallace, better known as Notorious B.I.G. - a gentleman who lived up to both parts of his moniker. And as the ultimate tribute to his memory, Biggie’s kids are set to star in an animated series called House of Wallace, featuring the man himself as a ghost giving advice. It’s what he would have wanted.
