Rick Ross, Fabolous & Busta Rhymes Join Diddy in BK B.I.G. Tribute

Rick Ross, Fabolous, Red Café and Busta Rhymes all hit the stage yesterday (March 9) to honor the memory of The Notorious B.IG. on the 13th anniversary of his death. The party, hosted by Diddy, took place at the LAB Bar in the neighborhood that Biggie called home, Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.

According to MTV News, Puff addressed the crowd donning a black t-shirt that read “Invisible Bully”—referencing B.I.G.’s line on the “Flava in Ya Ear” remix. The Bad Boy founder performed “Victory” alongside Busta, while enthusiastic fans screamed along to Big’s verse. When Fabolous took the stage he lead the audience as they chanted “Broooooooklyn, Broooooooklyn,” before jumping in to his song “I’mma Do It”

“That man had a special love for Brooklyn,” Diddy said about his beloved friend. “No matter where we was at, London, Japan, Africa, he would always represent Brooklyn to the fullest.” And so the night continued with BK DJ Mister Cee spinning all the Biggie catalog classics: “One More Chance,” “Playa Hata,” “Warning” and Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s “Get Money.”

Jadakiss showed up late, after Diddy and other performers had gone of stage, to show love as well. —Brooklyne Gipson
