Notorious B.I.G. Day

Brooklyn Designates ‘Notorious B.I.G. Day’ to Honor Biggie

Saturday is officially “Christopher ‘The Notorious B.I.G.’ Wallace Day” in Brooklyn, commemorating the day on which the late legendary rapper would have turned 44.

Brooklyn President Eric Adams declared the holiday on Thursday, presenting a proclamation to Wallace’s daughter, Ty’anna Wallace, while praising Biggie’s lyrics and storytelling, DNA Info reported.

“On his birthday, Brooklyn salutes one of our own, who has never been forgotten as long as his music plays,” Adams said. “His energy will remain and continue to inspire people throughout not only the borough of Brooklyn, but Biggie put Brooklyn on the map.”

Ty’anna Wallace said she knew her father loved Brooklyn, where he grew up, and she said he would have been proud of the honor.

“My family appreciates this more than you can even know,” she said.

Biggie was killed in Los Angeles in 1997 at the age of 24.
