Sean Combs reflects on passing of Biggie Smalls
Biggie was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles in 1997, with his murder still a murder today.
In a video posted to Twitter, Diddy says: “This year is more of a sobering year. For us, we lived 20 years of our lives without somebody that has been a big part of our lives. That has basically been responsible for the legend of our careers. He’s fed a lot of families, made a lot of people dance, made a lot of people feel good.”
He adds: “Today we’re gonna reflect, because we miss him. 20 years later, time heals all wounds, but this wound ain’t healed yet.”
Diddy has also called on fans to rap their favourite Biggie lyrics. In an Instagram post, Diddy wrote: “20 years ago today we lost the greatest rapper of all time, The Notorious B.I.G. We’re celebrating his life through his music and through his legacy today. I want everyone to get involved and rap your favorite Biggie verse”.
Diddy previously said that he will retire from music after the release of his forthcoming album ‘No Way Out 2’. That is expected in April.
