Evans, 43, explained how the rapper's death continues to affect the family, including her now adult son with B.I.G., 20-year-old Christopher Jordan Wallace.

The family and friends late rapper Notorious B.I.G. will pay tribute to the rapper this Sunday (March 12), in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York. Even at age seven, I recognized that his lyrical flow and raw grit was something special.

Last month, reports surfaced about a new Biggie Smalls documentary going into production by Submarine Entertainment and ByStorm Film.

His loss is still deeply felt in the hip-hop community; whenever someone mentions the decline of NY hip-hop today or the '90s golden age of rap, Biggie is one of the first names to come up.

As his popularity rose, Biggie's clever lyrical style and masterfully smooth yet complex flow began to put Bed-Stuy on the map, giving the masses a window into the street patois of King's County. This, however, might come as no surprise, since clips of his music and other Brooklyn hip hop is often heard at Nets games. According to the National Basketball Association website, "Biggie Night" will feature the rapper's friends and family with pre-gam and halftime tributes. Another backstage shot features Biggie and Redman hanging out with Tupac at the Palladium. Jay Z was also affected by Biggie's death, causing him to shoot to stardom with 1997's "City Is Mine". The two were at the center of the East Coast/West Coast beef.

The Browns are still trying to trade for Jimmy Garoppolo
We have all been wondering what it would really take for the New England Patriots to trade back up quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Belichick and the Patriots will continue to work the suitors for Garoppolo under the guise that they're happy to keep him.

He died in hospital on September 13.

"Any mother who has lost a child knows exactly the devastation I feel, it's the worst pain in the world and one that I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy". But while it was all good in the studio, the ongoing coastal antagonism was boiling over in the streets. AKA Christopher Wallace was shot and killed.

Those are the words of rapper Canibus, uttered on "Second Round Knockout", his famous 1998 diss record aimed at LL Cool J. They're a nod to the late, great Notorious B.I.G., who was killed in Los Angeles the year before.
