The Notorious B.I.G.
1992 to 1997
May 21, 1972 in Clinton Hill
March 9, 1997
New York, NY, United States
Known by the world for his tragic murder, it cannot be ignored that The Notorious B.I.G. was also a musical genius. Described by some as a "savior of East Coast hip-hop" he played a role in nurturing musical talents in addition to succeeding in his own musical career. Born in New York in 1972, his physical bulk earned him the nickname "Biggie Smalls" in addition to his performance name. He was into rap from an early age and began to perform at the age of 17, but was also in trouble with the law for selling drugs to support himself. After a stint in prison, he made his first recording, opening the door to a label and near immediate fame.

Big poppa is that big Italian mobster that is always eating a that same restaurant. That has plates of all different sorts of food all around him. that is just for him. He sits there all day just waiting for the fellas to come in and give him information. And who does get shot by the gangster who is going to take over that areas mob. Or it is my grandson who has Italian blood who is so smart for his young kindergarten age and acts all grown up. I call him my big poppa because he is always helping me. And always right and makes very good sense. Ahead of his time.
