#RIPBIG: Twitter Remembers The Notorious B.I.G. On Anniversary Of Death

March 9, 2020

In one of the many great lines from Canibus’ “Second Round K.O.,” the lyrics, “the greatest rapper of all time died on March 9th” in honor of the late Biggie Smalls AKA The Notorious B.I.G. still stirs the soul. On Twitter, fans are gathering in remembering the great Brooklyn rapper on the anniversary of his death.

Biggie Smalls was just 24 years old and at the peak of his fame when drive-by shooters in Los Angeles, Calif. fired down on his vehicle with one of the bullets fatally wounding him.
