NYC Comes Out For Notorious BIG Tribute Celebration On Anniversary Of His Death
On March 9, 1997, the music world was rocked by the untimely and unfortunate death of The Notorious BIG.
Each year celebrities, fans, family and friends pay tribute to the life, music and legacy of the hip-hop icon in their own way.
