When you hear the name Biggie Smalls, you think iconic, legendary and simply brilliant. But for millions of die-hard fans, the late rapper was more than an amazing artist, but rather a piece of the fabric that makes the hip-hop genre great.

Notorious B.I.G.’s  music is a reference point for what rap music was and should be. So when we stumbled upon this mashup of Barney the Dinosaur performing the rapper’s classic “Big Poppa,” it felt a tad blasphemous. But then … we connected the dots.

Barney was created in the early ’90s, thus drawing a large audience of 80’s babies who, undoubtedly, listened to or at least knew who the rapper was. Needless to say, both dominated the decade.

This also means most 90’s kids knew the Barney song, “I love you, you love me, we’re a happy family, with a great big hug and a kiss from me to you, won’t you say you love me too?” — But also knew “Big Poppa” or even “One More Chance.”

Even though the viral mashup of Barney getting down to Biggie is simply Internet shenanigans, it will never get old. Meanwhile, fans are preparing for the hopeful release of a new scripted comedy loosely based on some of Biggie’s classic lyrics.

Over the summer, it was announced that TBS was developing a scripted comedy titled Think B.I.G., a series that would chronicle the misadventures of an inner-city teen desperately trying to create a better future for his daughter and infant son.

Biggie died on March 9, 1997, in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. The rapper was sitting in a GMC Suburban SUV on the corner of Wilshire Blvd & South Fairfax when a dark-colored Chevy Impala SS pulled up and shots were fired. The rapper was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead.

Eva Marcille and boyfriend Michael Sterling have announced the gender of their unborn child. The couple is having, drum roll please, a baby boy!!!

Speaking to People magazine, Marcille explained how she broached the subject to her 3-year-old daughter, Marley, whom she shares with ex-boyfrined, Kevin McCall.

“I said, ‘Marley, would you like to have a little brother or sister?’ And she said, ‘Yes, Mom, but you know what? Maybe a baby brother. Make it a brother,’ ” the 33-yea-old said.

She continued, “I thought that was adorable, but at the time, I had no idea what I was having, so my fear [about] this extremely expressive and outgoing young girl [was] if this baby came out to be a little girl, that might not be a great situation for Marley.”

Marcille added, “However, I found out soon after that I was having a boy, and I felt like she willed it in her favor. I’m beyond elated to be having a boy.”

Eva has a big year ahead. The beauty, who is now 5-months-along, is not only expecting a new addition to the family, but will continue to showcase her life on Bravo’s, The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Congrats to the couple.
