Diddy to Throw Biggie Party in Brooklyn

Published March 5, 2010

Sean “Diddy” Combs is planning on commemorating his fallen friend, The Notorious B.I.G., in a way worthy of his namesake.

For the first time in years, Diddy, a Harlem native, will cross the bridge on March 9 – the 13th anniversary of Biggie’s tragic death – to host a party in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, the place where B.I.G. grew up.

According to the New York Post, the party will take place in Bed-Stuy’s The Lab nightclub.

Announcing that the dress code for the event will be “Biggie-inspired,” Combs told MTV News, “We’re trying to make March 9th a national hip-hop holiday. It already is on the low…. It’s a big day. It’s a day to celebrate his life. It’s a day to celebrate the life of the man. We done did the movie, the records. It’s something that, I guess as a label we’re obsessed with: making sure people don’t forget about this man in a positive way. March 9 is Biggie Day… Bump Biggie all day, feel good and positive.”

On March 9th, 1997, The Notorious B.I.G. – née Christopher Wallace – was tragically gunned down in Los Angeles after leaving a Soul Train Awards after party.
