The memory of legendary Brooklyn rapper The Notorious B.I.G. is being kept alive nearly two decades after his death.
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams proclaimed May 21 "Christopher 'The Notorious B.I.G.' Wallace Day" in honor of the Bedford-Stuyvesant native.
Adams presented the proclamation to Biggie's daughter with a ceremony at Borough Hall Friday.
"Now, May 21 is officially Biggie Day, which is amazing. It's been almost 20 years since he passed away, so for Brooklyn to acknowledge him and acknowledge that he is from Brooklyn, that he loves Brooklyn, and now it's Biggie Day for May 21 is just amazing," said T'yanna Wallace, the Notorious B.I.G.'s daughter. "He's just a great storyteller. He was really creative."
Biggie was born Christopher Wallace in 1972 and was shot to death in Los Angeles in 1997 at the age of 24.
Saturday would have been his 45th birthday.
