The Top Five Notorious B.I.G. Trademarks

Today marks 15 years since the Notorious B.I.G. was shot and killed in Los Angeles, and even now there are constant reminders of his passing. I guess after that long, you get used to seeing reminders of him pretty often—the music, the bootleg t-shirts, the use of his image and most memorable lines by every streetwear brand. There were also certain items that always brought Young Christopher, and while this list would vary person to person (especially for those who knew him) but here are the five items that I think he made his own.

1. Versace shades
Even though there are lots of pictures of Big with no shades on, these sunglasses are still the first thing I think of when I think of Big. Crazy dark locs was some West Coast gangster shit, but he smoothed it out by selecting Versace. That was Big in a nutshell, no?

Wow. From its headline I naively thought this "music" article would cover lyrical trademarks. Really, Biggie Smalls favored Coogie sweaters? You know, I suppose that his linguistic trademarks are secondary to that.
