Legends Never Die : Biggie Smalls Is The Illest

No matter how much time passes by, our love, admiration, and respect for the late Christopher Wallace never subsides. For an artist of this magnitude to be taken away from us after such a short-lived career seems unfair. But it is the memories and timeless classics that we cling onto that always seem to put things into perspective. Biggie was indeed one of the greatest artists of all time, and without his contribution, who knows where hip hop music would be.

It never ceases to amaze how much attention is shown to Biggie in the month of March, which is the month his life was taken many years ago. Not that it’s anything wrong with showing love and acknowledgement, but even with his memory being kept alive, I feel that credit should be given to D Roc for keeping that torch lit. Before B.I.G. was taken from us, he and his best friend D Roc were planning to launch a clothing line which was to be called Brooklyn Mint. Needless to say Biggie would not live to see this vision come alive but on the other hand, D Roc made sure that this very same vision would become a reality. Known now as Invisible Bully, this clothing line was brought to life by D Roc and it is said that Diddy played an intricate part in this as well. Furthermore, much respect should be given to him as he never once sought to exploit BIG’s name for fame or financial gain. It’s all for the ‘Love’ of The Notorious B.I.G.
