(AllHipHop News) The Barclays Center hosted “Biggie Night” earlier in the evening (March 13), where they gave the rapper a very special honor to Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace.
A New Jersey Nets jersey with the number 72 was hoisted to the rafters, and retired in honor of the late Notorious B.I.G.
The rapper, who was gunned down on March 9, 1997 in Los Angeles, was celebrated all throughout the matchup between the Brooklyn Nets and the New York Knicks.
Sean “Diddy” Combs and members of Biggie’s family were on hand to witness his special jersey with his birth year retired.
Additionally, a permanent banner featuring his lyric “spread love its the Brooklyn way” from his hit single “Juicy” will also be permanently displayed in the arena.
