Today would’ve been Christopher Wallace, AKA Notorious B.I.G.’s 41st birthday. Shot down in his prime on March 9, 1997, he was already considered one of the greatest rappers of all time. Just two albums in, he was declared the King Of New York by his piers. We’ll never know just how far Biggie would’ve taken his talents. He was a unique and clever wordsmith who made an immediate and permanent impact on Hip Hop music. Happy Birthday Biggie. You were, and still are, an inspiration to many-including me.
