  • The Notorious B.I.G. outside his mother's house in Brooklyn

Friends and fans paid tribute to the slain Brooklyn rapper (whose real name was Christopher Wallace) on Thursday, which marked the 20th anniversary of his death in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. While his murderer still roams free, she hasn't given up fighting for justice for her son.

For more on his incredible life and the music he brought us, check out this unbelievable piece for Complexhere.

In efforts to celebrate and honor the late rapper, his dear friend Diddy kicked off a social media campaign inviting fans to post their favorite Biggie versus using the hashtag, #WeMissYouBIG. The Brooklynettes are also doing two special routines in honor of Biggie, and there will be a video montage commemorating Biggie's life.

And so, the entire evening will be dedicated to all things B.I.G.

"Any mother who has lost a child knows exactly the devastation I feel, it's the worst pain in the world and one that I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy. A lot of people come and go and then you never hear from them again". As a family, we've collectedly grieved and it doesn't ever get any better for us. I realized that's how big this moment was for him and this was really his dream. Zoom ahead to 2014 and it's easy to assume that when Ariana Grande sampled "I'm Coming Out" for her "Break Your Heart Right Back", the young pop star was in fact paying homage to the Notorious B.I.G. track she nearly certainly heard as a little kid. For us, we lived 20 years of our lives without somebody that has been a big part of our lives. "On this day we're gonna reflect for him".

Diddy, also known a Puff Daddy, in 1997 released a chart-topping tribute song after Biggie's death, "I'll Be Missing You", which features his widow Faith Evans and samples from "Every Breath You Take" by The Police. The critically acclaimed biopic Notoriouscelebrated his life and attracted widespread acclaim and box office success.
