Lin-Manuel Miranda, Missy Elliott and Faith Evans were just a few artists honoring the 20th anniversary of the death of The Notorious B.I.G. last week. Diddy, who was Biggie’s right-hand man back in the day, launched a social media campaign, inviting fans to rap their favorite Biggie verses and share them with the hastag #WeMissYouBIG. He plans to edit the submissions into a special video.
