Congressman Hakeem Jeffries Raps Biggie Lyrics on House Floor

Commemorate the 20th anniversary of Biggie Small's death at a Bed Stuy art show

OK, well that's a recent phenomenon. Arum jumped right in: "I know you thought birthdays were the worst days, but I think Thursday might be the worst day". The rapper's death remains one of the most high-profile killings in music history.

The congressman began by reciting lyrics from his 1994 hit "Juicy", before declaring how the words of the star, born Christopher Wallace and also known as Biggie Smalls, would "live on forever". The evening, which the Nets have dubbed "Biggie Night", will celebrate and commemorate Biggie's legacy and the 20th anniversary of his passing.

With an interior design inspired by the streets of NY, the pop-up store also aims to provide social media-worthy opportunities, such as the chance to recreate and capture the iconic "The Notorious B.I.G." throne and music my hip hop crew Livin' Proof.

"Every year, whether I'm in the club or just on the radio, I make sure to pay tribute to him by playing his music", DJ Lonnie B said.

The Notorious B.I.G.is being remembered by collaborator Sean "Diddy" Combs and his wife, Faith Evans, 20 years after the rapper's killing.

If the Nets' "Biggie Night" is half as entertaining as that video, the Brooklyn fans are in for a real treat.
