The Notorious B.I.G., real name Christopher Wallace and also known as Biggie Smalls, was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997. To this day, he remains one of the most influential rappers of all time, as well as one of the most respected. Diddy posted an Instagram video on Thursday in honor of his deceased friend and collaborator. “Shout out to all the loved ones out there across the world,” he began. “True B.I.G. fans. This year is more of a sobering year. It’s 20 years. And for us we lived 20 years of our lives without somebody who has been a big part of our lives, who’s basically been responsible for the legend of our careers.”

Diddy continued, “He’s fed a lot of families, made a lot of people dance, made a lot of people feel good. On this day, we’re gonna reflect on him because we miss him. 20 years later, time heals all wounds. I want to thank all the fans, everybody praying. We love you all.” The rapper also went on to send condolences to Biggie’s mom, kids, and widow Faith Evans. Additionally, Diddy invited fans to rap their favorite Notorious B.I.G. verse using the hashtag #WeMissYouBIG. NOTE: The video is no longer available.
