Junior M.A.F.I.A. Live from Christopher Wallace Way

Remember that line from Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s “Get Money”? B.I.G.’s spitting game at Lil Kim, talking about how “You wanna sip Mo on my living room floor/ Play Nintendo with Cease and Nino.” Of course you do. As we celebrate the life and legacy of the late great Christopher Wallace—who passed away too soon, 20 years ago today—MASS APPEAL links up with JM members Lil Cease and Nino right on the front stoop of 226 St. James Place, the block where a hip hop legend was born. Cease and Nino run back some of the memories they experienced right there on that stoop, envisioned what Biggie would be doing if he was here today, and let us know how “Things Done Changed.” B.I.G.’s lifelong playa partners have amassed thousands of signatures in their effort to rename this block “Christopher Wallace Way,” but so far the powers that be have blocked their best efforts. But as B.I. might say, “It’s all good baby baby.” Peep the exclusive video above.

Today Cease and DJ Mister Cee will set off for Europe to embark on a Biggie tribute tour. Meanwhile Biggie’s daughter T’Yanna hosts a reception and pop-up shop in honor of her father (details below).
