March 9th and September 13th Become National Days of Unity in Hip Hop
March 9th and September 13th were days of great tragedy in hip hop, as the days that Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac, respectively, passed away. In the years since, they've continuiously served as unofficial days of remembrance where we honor the lives and music of the two legends. Why not take it a step further, and make these two dates official days of unity in hip hop, where rappers host free fan appreciation concerts throughout the country and promote messages of anti-violence?
