Rapper Christopher George Latore Wallace, known as Notorious B.I.G. or Biggie, is going to be one of the names inducted into the 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The 35th annual class will cement Biggie Smalls’ impact, despite a short-but-amazing career, with an induction into immortality.
To be eligible for the Hall of Fame an individual artist or band must have released their first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. Last September marked the very moment when B.I.G.’s first album, Ready To Die, became eligible.
Biggie Smalls is arguably one of the greatest MCs of all-time. The Brooklyn, New York-born Christopher Wallace displayed an incredible knack for versatile rapping, mixed with a laid-back yet street-infused style that also traced his success into a mafioso persona, AFH reports.
