It’s been 20 years since beloved Brooklyn MC and Hip-Hop legend The Notorious B.I.G. was taken from his millions of fans and the Hip-Hop culture but many people do what they can to make sure his memory lives on.

From graffiti to clothing apparel (the Jenner sisters pieces do not count at all) Biggie been immortalized in a number of ways and just this week the New York City Council decided to name a Brooklyn basketball court after the King of New York.

With the assistance of Biggie’s daughter, T’yanna, Lil Cease, and DJ Mister Cee, New York Councilman Robert Cornegy officially renamed Crispus Attucks Playground on Fulton Street to the Christopher “Biggie” Wallace Courts.

Speaking at the ceremony, Biggie’s baby girl, T’yanna said she felt “so grateful for this. I’m proud of him. We’re all proud of him.”

DJ Mister Cee went on to add “If you were to tell Biggie that he was getting basketball courts named after him he would have laughed.”

But ain’t no one in Brooklyn laughing about this, we loving it.
