We’ll Always Love Big Poppa! RIP Biggie (My March 9th 1997 story)

13 years ago, the greatest of rapper of all-time died on March 9th. Yeah I know, I quoted Canibus rhymes but he was right, he WAS & will ALWAYS be the G.O.A.T. I’m a HUGE Biggie fan & tonight (off my Blackberry) I’ve decided to share MY story when I heard of the passing of a legend.

As a young boy of 13 years, every vacation I had would be spent with my family in New York (Q.U.E another E.N.S.). I was on my spring break at the time. In Montreal, we didn’t have all the media outlets the people in the states had (Video Music Box, BET, MTV, Hot 97 & more). I got hooked with all the music I’d listen to from the TV screen & the radio. I always made sure I recorded all the videos on TV to show my peeps in MTL.

That saturday night (March 8th), my cousins & I played pranks on each others! It was a wild evening, LOL! The next morning, I woke up with a frown (cause it was my last day) with the fam. First thing I did when I woke up: tuned in to Hot 97! The voice of New York, Angie Martinez was on & she mentioned something that would shock the world forever: The Notorious Biggie Small has been shot & killed… Ill never forget how EVERYBODY in the house froze up! We were just stunted, shocked & mad! Just thinking about it gives me the chills. Smh! I ain’t going front, I shed a few tears!

I was REAL quiet on my way back home (to Montreal) 13 years later, we don’t get down on this day, we celebrate his life. I know Mister Cee will celebrate his life tomorrow! Same thing for Funk Flex, all the bloggers, EVERBODY! ALL DAY!

With that being said, if you’d like to share your story, you’re more than welcome. If you don’t remember where you were when he passed, leave your favorite BIG memories.

Your legacy will live on FOREVER!

One Luv!

R.I.P Christopher “Notorious BIG” Wallace
