Watch New York congressman Hakeem Jeffries rap Biggie lyrics

People have been paying tributes in different ways to mark 20 years since Notorious B.I.G.’s death but this may be the most poignant.

Courtesy of Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, who is a representative of Biggie’s home district of Brooklyn, he recites the classic lyrics from Juicy whilst stood next to a printed portrait of the rapper on the floor of congress.

Jeffries added: “Biggie Smalls, Frank White, the king of New York. He died 20 years ago today in a tragedy that occurred in Los Angeles. But his words live on forever.”

He ended his address by asking: “Where Brooklyn at?”
