“Cause the greatest rapper of all time, died on March 9th!”
The line was a standout in a battle song full of standout lines, but the sentiment still holds true to millions of rap fans across the world. As the anniversary of the death of Brooklyn’s Big Poppa draws near, thoughts and tributes turn toward The Notorious B.I.G.’s legacy in hip hop music and culture. REVIVAL, a monthly party helmed by DJ heavyweight Rich Medina, is no exception, and as the solemn occasion this year falls in alignment with the monthly event, the presence of the late, great Biggie Smalls will most certainly be felt throughout the night.
Joining Rich Medina will be DJ PQ and J.Period, currently holding down musical director duties for the Brooklyn Nets, each formidable spinners in their own rights, with extensive catalogs filled with B.I.G. goodies. One would expect fitting tributes to hip hop’s larger than life Brooklynite, especially considering the venue, FREECANDY, is mere minutes from Christopher Wallace’s old stomping grounds.
So, come out and party and bullshit with some of New York’s finest DJs and finest partygoers in one of Brooklyn’s finest venues as REVIVAL celebrates the life and music of the greatest rapper of all time.
