Recap: The Notorious B.I.G. Tribute Celebration at Brooklyn’s Milk River

On March 9, 1997, we lost one of the greatest voices ever in Hip Hop music and culture, The Notorious B.I.G., also known as Biggie Smalls. On the 19th anniversary of his tragic passing, just a few blocks from the Clinton Hill block where he grew up at Milk River bar and lounge, a few of his former collaborators joined his daughter Tyanna Wallace in recognition of the life of an all-time great emcee.

From Stevie J and Lil’ Cease to Mase and Hot 97’s DJ Enuff, celebrities and prominent New York personality showed up in droves to show their support with a vibrant crowd, which partook in an entertaining Biggie Karaoke contest and enjoyed evocative original Biggie art.

You can watch a video recap of the festivities above, and be sure not to miss out on next year’s festivities, when the landmark 20th anniversary will certainly be acknowledged in a major way.
