Biggie Day

Fourteen years ago today, the Hip Hop culture has lost one of its brightest stars ever – Biggie Smalls. Fans around the web are celebrating his legacy by sending out #biggieday over Twitter. Hailing from the Bedford-Stuyvesant section in Brooklyn, Christopher Wallace’s rise to fame was quick and his career was cut short just as quickly. Sean “Diddy” Combs signed Biggie to Uptown Records and brought him to bad Boy Records when he started the label in 1992. The subsequent success has been well documented. Biggie was shot and killed in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997, and his second solo album, Life after Death, was released on March 26. His murder remains unsolved. 35mmBeats would like commemorate his art by posting cut “Warning”, which appeared on his 1994′s debut Ready to Die. One of the most sublime examples of his impressive lyrical abilities. Rest in Peace.
