Mar. 10: Tribute to Biggie Smalls
Yesterday marked 17 years since the death of rapper The Notorious B.I.G., a.k.a. Biggie Smalls. Tonight you can head to The Howard Theatre, where 25 vocalists and rappers will pay homage to the legendary artist with a collaborative tribute concert featuring some of his greatest hits. Cody Valentine of local alternative hip-hop band All the Best Kids organized the event in memory of his favorite rapper, whose music, he says, transcends its subject matter: "From a hip-hop perspective, at least to me, it shows that no matter where you start, you can make it to the top and become successful at what you do."
