March 9, 2017, marked the 20th anniversary of the death of the Notorious B.I.G., Christopher Wallace.
While tributes were pouring out from all corners of the earth, one of the best shoutouts to the late, great Biggie Smalls came from
Hell Washington D.C.
Brooklyn Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries took time on the house floor to pay tribute to the iconic rapper by spitting a couple lines from Biggie’s classic banger “Juicy.”

“Biggie Smalls, Frank White, the king of New York. He died 20 years ago today in a tragedy that occurred in Los Angeles. But his words live on forever. I got the privilege of representing the district where Biggie Smalls was raised. We know he went from negative to positive and emerged as one of the world most important hip hop stars. His rags-to-riches life story is the classic embodiment of the American dream. Biggie Smalls is gone but he will never be forgotten. Rest in piece Notorious B.I.G.. Where Brooklyn at?”
Maybe congress isn’t that bad after a…. hahahahahahaha. Just kidding.
