Uberlicious Jams: Faith & Biggie’s The King & I

I may have mentioned here that I also write music reviews and artist spotlights for Pop Magazine. Here’s my latest review: Faith Evans & The Notorious B.I.G. – The King & I!

Screen Shot 2017-05-21 at 3.48.52 PMDays before the untimely demise of Biggie Smalls, being gunned down in Cali, he sat down with Rap City host, Joe Clair, to give what would become his final televised interview to promote his second album, Life After Death. That was twenty years ago, yet the wounds of his unsolved murder are still hard to grapple with for those who knew and loved him most. Namely his widow, Faith Evans, his mother, Voletta Wallace, and of course his crew, including Puff Daddy and Junior M.A.F.I.A. Not to mention the impact his death had on the entire hip-hop community, especially with it occurring six months after Tupac Shakur’s murder. The Notorious B.I.G. would have turned 45 years old today.
