Because of breaking news, this thread was moved from yesterday.
In my time as a DJ, I met many rappers who would go one to be famous. One I met was Biggie Smalls AKA Notorious BIG and who’s real name was Chris Wallace. I met him when I did a gig at a club in New York City back in 1994. This was when his first commercial single Juicy came out and it was starting to burn up the charts. Several months after that in late 1994, his first album Ready to Die came out. This album along with several that came out in 94/95 was the creative peak of Rap Music. Getting back to Biggie, he was down to earth and cool as hell. We ran into each other several times and even when he made it, he never forgot who I was and always said hello.
When I head he was killed on March 9th 1997 I was truly sad. I related with him very well as he came from a family of Jamaican immigrants. The few political conversation we had, I was under the impression he hated welfare, abortions and racism. He is now a legendary figure in the Hip Hop community and I feel honored to have met him.
Here are my favorite tracks from Biggie.
My favorite Biggie song.
RIP Christopher Wallace.
