TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- Where wasDiddy?
- I can’t be the only one who feels a way that more of Biggie’s peers and industry friends didn’t show support.
- It’s not like this is the first Biggie memorial or tribute event over the years.
- I wonder if even Biggie knew hip-hop would take it this far.
- He's a Brooklyn boy who has done his borough proud.
Dozens of fans braved the rain to show support for the late Notorious B.I.G.in New York City on Monday, a day before what would have been his 47th birthday.
Biggie’s mom,Voletta Wallace spoke to the crowd n the Bed-Stuy section of Brooklyn, at a street renaming ceremony. St. James Place at the corner of Fulton Street is now calledChristopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace Way in honor of the rapper who grew up down the block and helped put the hood on the rap map.
Biggie’s son,Christopher Wallace Junior, and daughterT’Yanna, were both on hand to honor their pops, as was his formerJunior Mafiagroup member and Bad Boy labelmate,Lil’ Kim.
