During his five years in the music industry, starting in 1992 to 1997, he has made such an impact with his laidback flow and braggadocious lyrics over a one-of-a-kind beat. Biggies' lyrics and records are continuously sampled by other artists to this day, giving us all the reason to call him "The GOAT." 

Biggie is the type of rapper that allows you to express all of your vulnerable feelings, even in a hyper-masculine space. Biggie gave us cookout music, drug-dealing music, struggle music, even romance. Hits like "Juicy," "Hypnotize," "Mo Money, Mo Problems," and "10 Crack-Commandments" are just a few hits that show his versatility that still manages to be "Biggie." 

V-103 remembers Biggie as one of the greatest MC's of all time and will be playing your favorites from the rapper throughout the day. 

Today we celebrate the life and legacy of the great Notorious B.I.G!!!! All day long on V-103, we will be playing all of your favorite songs from the legend! Happy Birthday Biggie!!! --
