Where Brooklyn At? Biggie Smalls Even Reaches Congress

Thursday marked two decades since the death of The Notorious B.I.G., so, naturally, Atlanta's "Action News" paid tribute by sneaking the rapper's lyrics into its telecast.

Combs asked social media users to salute the rapper also known as Biggie Smalls by rapping their favorite Biggie verse and posting video on social media.

The Brooklyn Congressman's district includes Biggie's old Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood and he saluted the rapper on the floor of the House of Representatives. "His rags-to-riches life story is the classic embodiment of the American dream", Jeffries continued.

PSG's Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani silenced the Camp Nou with a powerful right-foot drive just after the hour mark. The Brazilian added of his side's win: "It's the best game that I've played in my life".

In a life tragically cut short, Biggie gave the world a number of great tunes including Notorious B.I.G., Juicy, Big Poppa, Notorious Thugs and Hynotize. "Mirroring a similar broadcast by Mark Arum when he paid tribute a year ago to the late A Tribe Called Quest MC Phife Dawg by dropping lyrical references into his traffic reports, Arum and news anchor Fred Blankenship decided this time to throw in casual references to Smalls" lyrics during their morning broadcast yesterday.

Christopher George Latore Wallace, better known by his stage names, became a rap icon when his first album debuted in 1994.

He was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles in 1997.
