In honor of the late rapper Notorious B.I.G., who would have turned 50 on Saturday, the Empire State Building will turn its lighting red and white, with a crown spinning atop its mast. Variety reports that the Brooklyn Barclays Center will show videos of Biggie Smalls, born Christopher Wallace, and will sell MetroCards featuring the icon at three nearby subway stations -Lafayette Avenue, Clinton – Washington Avenue, and Atlantic Avenue – Barclays Center subway stations.

Even Amazon Music is joining the celebrations. Its catalog music brand [RE]DISCOVER will host a takeover of Clinton – Washington Avenue, featuring art inspired by the iconic image of him wearing a crown. Visitors will be able to scan a QR code that gives them access to an exclusive Instagram filter that celebrates Biggie’s legacy. Amazon is also working alongside the non-profit Beautify Earth to reveal new murals of Biggie created by New York City artists across every borough.

Just when it felt like the celebration stops there, Biggie’s diamond-certified, Grammy-nominated second album, “Life After Death,” will be released as a vinyl-only release on June 10 from Bad Boy / Atlantic / Rhino Records. In addition to the eight CDs, the deluxe edition includes a booklet containing photographs of the album cover photo shoot. In addition, the booklet also contains quotes from those who worked on the original album.
