Today marks the 20th anniversary of the passing of none other than the G.O.A.T of Hip-Hop, Notorious B.I.G. Not only did he leave behind an incredible legacy but he set the bar high for the new generation of MC’s. Not only was B.I.G. versatile and abusive on records but most would say he was Crooklyn’s finest with a mix of being a lyrical bully. On the journey to greatness the power house of Junior Mafia & Bad Boy Records created a dream and surpassed any obstacles in the way of their success. B.I.G. saw life through one perspective: the sky was the limit and with his “up in your face” rap attitude it was hard not to be intimidated by him.
