NEW YORK, NY – May 21 in Brooklyn, New York has been proclaimed as “Christopher ‘The Notorious B.I.G.‘ Wallace Day” in honor of the late-rap great.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams declared Biggie Smalls birthday a holiday and presented his daughter T’yanna Wallace and Lil Cease with a proclamation, DNAinfo reports.

“On his birthday, Brooklyn salutes one of our own, who has never been forgotten as long as his music plays,” says Adams. “His energy will remain and continue to inspire people throughout not only the borough of Brooklyn, but Biggie put Brooklyn on the map.”

His daughter recalled how much her father loved Brooklyn and says that he’d be proud.

“I know my dad really loved Brooklyn,” T’yanna says. “He loved where he was from. Brooklyn, Bed-Stuy, ‘Do or Die,’ that’s what he always said.”
