PUMPED AND PROUD

Diddy’s very public reaction taken in the streets of Miami was posted on his Instagram. Speaking to the camera, he made it known that it was a “special moment” before delivering what he dubbed as a “special announcement.”

Dressed in a white hoodie, sunglasses and a cap, the rap mogul relished the song he chose to play in the background. It was the slain rapper’s track, “Juicy” from his 1994 debut album, “Ready to Die.” Then he finally screams, “BIGGIE YOU DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,” the same words he used to caption his clip.

Diddy was evidently pepped with the news as he goes on to shout the words, “Notorious B.I.G. is going to be inducted to the Rock and Roll mother [expletive] Hall of Fame!!"

Diddy held the camera as he continued speaking with heightened excitement. Before the clip ended, he looks up to the sky then utters, “Miss you king. New York stand up. Brooklyn, yeah!”

THEIR HISTORY

Biggie and Diddy go way back in the 90’s when the latter still went by the name, Puff Daddy. Biggie was a recording artist under Diddy’s label, Bad Boy Records which released his debut album. However, in less than five years since signing with Diddy, Biggie was fatally killed in a drive-by shooting.

Shortly after Biggie’s death, Diddy released a video for the song, “I’ll Be Missing You” and dedicated it to the late rapper. It also featured Biggie’s widow, Faith Evans and 112.

THE CLASS OF 2020

The announcement of Biggie’s induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was made on Wednesday, January 15. He is joined by fellow inductees, Whitney Houston, Depeche Mode, the Doobie Brothers, Nine Inch Nails, and T. Rex.

Whitney’s mentor, Clive Davis, was likewise thrilled with the announcement of his protege’s inclusion in the Class of 2020.“I’m delighted with the news, ecstatic," he told Billboard. "It's very important to Whitney's legacy and fully deserved."
