May 21 well henceforth be known as “Notorious B.I.G. Day” in Brooklyn.
Today would have been Notorious B.I.G. ‘s 44th birthday. Hip hop has been honoring his birthday every year since he was gunned down — this year in particular, with Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Family Reunion concert. But now it’s official. His birthday is a holiday.
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams declared May 21st “Christopher ‘The Notorious B.I.G.’ Wallace Day” earlier this week at a presentation with Biggie’s daughter T’yanna Wallace and Lil Cease.
“I know my dad really loved Brooklyn,” T’yanna said. “He loved
where he was from. Brooklyn, BedStuy, ‘ Do or Die ,’ that’s what he always said.”
