Brooklyn Borough President, Eric Adams, has declared today 'Biggie Day' in honor of late rapper Notorious B.I.G's birthday.
Adams presented the proclamation to Christopher Wallace's daughter with a ceremony at Borough Hall yesterday.
Ty'anna Wallace, Notorious B.I.G's daughter, explained: "Now, May 21st is officially Biggie Day which is amazing. It's been almost 20 years since he passed away, so for Brooklyn to acknowledge him and acknowledge that he is from Brooklyn, that he loves Brooklyn, and now it's Biggie Day for May 21st is just amazing. He's just a great storyteller. He was really creative."
Biggie was born in 1972, raised in Bedford-Stuyvesant and shot to death in Los Angeles in 1997 at the age of 24.
Today would have been his 44th birthday.
