Remembering The Life & Times Of The Great Notorious B.I.G., Celebs Show Their Love

It’s been 18 years since the tragic death of Christopher Wallace, known to the world as The Notorious B.I.G. His larger than life persona and raw verses have stood the test of time, keeping the influential rapper’s memory alive and well.

Big’s unlimited flows, witty rhyme schemes, and always evolving fashion sense helped create the blueprint of the modern-day MC. His influence can be found in the DNA of anyone who calls themselves a rapper today; signed or unsigned.

Although March 9th serves as a somber reminder of the massive talent no longer with us, and what could have been. Today also serves as a universal celebration, honoring the man who taught us how to spread love — the Brooklyn way. Fans, friends and celebs let their love for Big Poppa by paying  tribute and homage to the God MC via social media. We take a look at all the love shown today for B.I.G. and remember the man who was simply unbelievable.
