Today marks the 20th anniversary of the late Biggie Smalls’ death and dozens of celebrities are taking to social media to remember the life of the Notorious B.I.G.
It was on March 9, 1997, when the 24-year-old was leaving a Vibe party in Hollywood when a man in a dark-colored Chevrolet Impala SS pulled alongside the New York native’s GMC Suburban SUV and opened fire. Christopher Wallace, the rapper’s legal name, was shot four times.
Biggie was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.
In efforts to celebrate and honor the late rapper, his dear friend Diddy kicked off a social media campaign inviting fans to post their favorite Biggie verses using the hashtag, #WeMissYouBIG.
“Today is March 9th. Twenty years ago today we lost the greatest rapper of all time, The Notorious B.I.G.,” Diddy says in an Instagram video. “We’re celebrating his life through his music and through his legacy today.”
Common shared a photo of a young Wallace on Instagram with the caption: “One of the BEST to ever touch the mic! 20 years later, may God continue to bless the soul of the only Christopher we acknowledge. Mr. Wallace aka Biggie Smalls aka Biggie aka Big Poppa aka Frank White aka Notorious BIG!”
Faith Evans shared the same photo of her ex-husband, writing: “B. I. G. P. O. P. P. A.”
The singer also pushed for fans to pre-order The King & I album, which drops May 19. According to Faith’s team, “The album’s 25 tracks feature newly recorded vocals by Faith Evans melded with vocals by Biggie Smalls, some well-known but also a selection of rare and unheard rhymes from the B.I.G. vault.”
The project will also include an “impressive list of guest appearances by rap royalty including Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Lil’ Cease, Lil’ Kim, Sheek Louch, Styles P, and Snoop Dogg.”

Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
