Fans Remember The Notorious BIG On The 20th Anniversary Of His Death

The Notorious B.I.G. may be gone, but his musical legacy will last forever.

Spotify also posted some interesting trivia about Biggie's music as it relates to their service.

In his Instagram post, Diddy revealed plans to edit together fan submissions to produce "something special" in honor of his friend's passing.

Speculation immediately rose that his death was linked to a feud between East Coast and West Coast rappers that had been simmering for years, although some music historians say the coastal rift was exaggerated for commercial reasons. That has basically been responsible...for the legend of our careers. He was a generational talent, and worth remembering any day we get the chance.

Also upcoming is an album of duets by Smalls and his wife Faith Evans called "The King & I", due May 19.


This Sunday, when the Nets play the crosstown rival New York Knicks, they will be honoring Biggie in even grander fashion as they dedicate an entire night to his memory.

"Any mother who has lost a child knows exactly the devastation I feel, it's the worst pain in the world and one that I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy".

Beginning Friday, an exclusive pop-up shop will open in London where a never-before-seen Hypnotize fashion line from the famed rapper's estate will be released.

The producer's monthly Bowl Train clubnight at Brooklyn Bowl (taking place tonight, March 9) is devoted to "one of the illest".

And, of course, no artist embodied the mean streets of Brooklyn in the 90's more than Christopher George Latore Wallace, better known as The Notorious B.I.G.
