The Notorious B.I.G. Covers XXL (February/March)

For the 15th year anniversary of the Notorious B.I.G.’s death, XXL has put together a special issue which will pay tribute to Biggie.

The XXL team spoke to some of those closest to Big for an in-depth look into his life and death. From his kids T’Yanna Wallace and Christopher “CJ” Wallace and their mamas, Jan Jackson and Faith Evans, to his closest friends like members of Junior M.A.F.I.A. and others, many got their chance to share stories and more to pay homage to the beloved MC. Most even disclosed rare, never-before-published photos of Biggie from their personal collections, which are featured in this month’s issue. Since Big was the most swagger-jacked rapper of all time, there’s a list of the 100 best Biggie bites, a look a what The Notorious One might have looked like at 40 plus much more in the magazine.

Check it out on February 7th when it hits newsstands.

    Strange how the phrase “bless you” after a sneeze is so automatic amongst the majority of American society. Like, I’m almost certain I say bless you more than I say thank you, and I’m way more appreciative than I am religious.

    RIP, this nicca had the illest styles and the illest flow. Pac made the best ‘songs’ but this nicca had the best flow. I hit a white hipster party this weekend and everyone knew every word to Juicy. Drake came on and these whiteys only knew the hook. So respect a motherucking real boss.

    @Casket Black Folk Hatred (intra-racism):

    Read: It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back, and The Willie Lynche Letters.

    The gangs that fought in those housing developments named after our Cultural Gods were victims of a racism that has been intstitutionalized. Have tl break apart their entire life destitutions in order to get to the root of it. And the plan the Gov’t laid out for them, before they knew their was a human will for them already bro.

    I sound crazy, but you’d be even crazier to think their wasn’t one/ isn’t one that preys on grossly underprivileged minorities b. “this shit ain’t set up for a young nigga to advance, and on that note, we’re playing right into their hands.”

    And they didn’t name their homes. And the outcome of housing developments like that is to BREED underworld gang culture. That’s only part of their ball of wax.

    You can try and blame them for their shortcomings as only and all on them, but what do you blame for your own view on these people b?

    Help, fight, or add to their plight? That’s the real question.

    while we got he-yeah, say the hustlers prayer!

  16. S.I.C.K Says:

    ultimately to cleanse the hood these gang leaders need to be shot in the fucking bean and niccas need to start going to school.

    ^THIS.

    So damn natural to come out. I wish some people would die after they sneeze though. But I still habitually say “bless you.” smh.

    Finally, black women need to intermix with whites. That will solve a lot of problems

    STFU Snitch
    What you tryna kick knowledge?!?

    You were just talking about murdering a nagherbcuz he hurt your feelings via da internet

    You been a confused snith tips

  21. Yasser Pair-a-gats Says:

    @ Troubleshooter I used to respek all that black culture black pride shit in college but ultimately to cleanse the hood these gang leaders need to be shot in the fucking bean and niccas need to start going to school. Also, black men need to start being there for their seeds. Finally, black women need to intermix with whites. That will solve a lot of problems. No shots and no racism, these are real trae the truths for those seeking knowledge. #knowledge_for_your_fucking_bean

  22. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    Chea,

    I agree. And that’s the underlying point that I’m making. It takes a will that been separated from the hood though. I BEEN said kill the drug dealers on some “Boondock Saints” shit, stop closing the extra-curricular activity programs for school and afterchool, and a lot other thing that MATTER.

    It’s things that needs to be done though. And just saying shit ain’t gone FIX nothing.
