A Celebration of Life and Legacy

 

Today is March 9. Two things that are historical and dear to me happened.

(1) My alma mater, Southern University A&M College was founded. Please, educate yourself or read my take on it here. (Don’t make me post the Youtube videos!)

(2) On this day (night), Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace was killed in Los Angeles. I’m lazy today, so read an old post here. When you talk about someone who has classic material like Biggie, there’s no need for an update. It is what it is. I’ve been on Twitter since 7 a.m., quoting lyrics. My favorite:

I bring pain, blood stains on what remains of his jacket. He had a gun he shoulda packed it, cocked it…#ripbig

My minds my 9. My pen’s my Mac-10. My target? All u emcees who started rappin #ripbig

Don’t be mad–UPS is hiring. #ripbig

Don’t forget to watch MTV Jams. Biggie’s on all day!

“Spread love, it’s the Brooklyn way.”
