You can't think about New York City without thinking about the Notorious B.I.G., Biggie Smalls. The two are simply synonymous. They go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. You can't mention one without the other, they are forever defined by each other.
Many people get tattoos of their heroes, and it's no wonder there are so many Biggie Smalls tattoos out there. He's widely considered one of the greatest rappers of all time, and he only released one album while he was alive. His career may have been cut short, but many authorities on music will mention him as one of the best rappers of all time.
Credited with revitalizing the East Coast's rap scene, Biggie Smalls will forever be linked to New York City. He is the undisputed King of New York, and I don't think anyone will be taking the crown from him.
