When Biggie smalls died i remember not really fully being able to understand the depth of what just happened. I mean, i was young REAL YOUNG. I do however remember feeling sad, real sad. I'm not gonna lie i think i was more sad to see the reaction and sadness of others due to the loss of a rap phenomenon, somebody people had genuinely loved through his music. A guy who exuded positive energy even through the gritty, hardcore, raps about snatching chains and busting guns, and rap beef between him and Tupac. People could see through all of that and still see that Biggie was a GOOD man. I remember seeing the crowds of people crying as his casket passed them by and proceeded down Fulton street, where his career began with freestyles and rap battles in front of corner stores. I can also remember seeing people dancing as his music blared from speakers in apartment windows, parked cars, etc. I was young, but as i got older and music evolved and changed over the years i realized that we lost someone we can never replace, and never get back due to senselessness.
I hope the life and death of Christopher "Notorious B.I.G" Wallace is a lesson for generations to come.
With that being said I'll leave you with The video and Dedication To Biggie "We'll Always Love Big Poppa By The Lox:
