This past Saturday, May 21, would have been Biggie‘s 44th birthday, had he not been taken from us that fateful March evening in 1997. As his Bad Boy family honored his memory with a reunion concert at the Barclays Center, his hometown of Brooklyn did their part as well, declaring May 21 officially “The Notorious B.I.G. Day.”

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams presented Big‘s daughter, T’yanna Wallace, and Lil Cease with a proclamation for the new day over the weekend. Adams says:

“On his birthday, Brooklyn salutes one of our own, who has never been forgotten as long as his music plays. His energy will remain and continue to inspire people throughout not only the borough of Brooklyn, but Biggie put Brooklyn on the map.”

“I know my dad really loved Brooklyn,” T’yanna added. “He loved where he was from. ‘Brooklyn, Bed-Stuy do or die,’ that’s what he always said.”
