Happy Birthday…

Happy birthday to one of Hip Hop’s OGs, the rap slaya’, one of the greatest rappers to pick up a microphone – the late Biggie Smalls!

Our shoutout of the day is dedicated to Christopher George Latore Wallace aka Biggie on his birthday and for the legacy he’s left behind.

From being raised in New York and  rapping as a teen for his entire neighbourhood, to recording his first tape which caught the attention of Sean Diddy Combs and then releasing his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Ready to Die’, The Notorious BIG truly paved a path for gangsta rap. We salute you, Happy Birthday!
