Watch New York Congressman Hakeem Jeffries Rap Biggie Lyrics On House Floor
The Democrat marked 20 years since Notorious B.I.G.’s death with a special tribute.
March 9 was a celebration of all things Notorious B.I.G. as the world remembered the late rapper on the 20th anniversary of his death. One unlikely tribute came on the floor of Congress courtesy of Brooklyn Congressman Hakeem Jeffries. As you can see in the clip above, he recited the lyrics to Biggie’s “Juicy” while standing next to a printed portrait of the rapper.
Jeffries added: “Biggie Smalls, Frank White, the king of New York. He died 20 years ago today in a tragedy that occurred in Los Angeles. But his words live on forever. I got the privilege of representing the district where Biggie Smalls was raised.” The Congressman then ended the address by asking: “Where Brooklyn at?” Check out the clip in full above.
