The Notorious B.I.G. is one of the most legendary rappers ever to grace the microphone. However, he may not have reached that status if he never worked with Brooklyn DJ 50 Grand, who helped create the late rapper’s first-ever demo tape. Unfortunately, friends of Biggie are mourning once again as DJ 50 Grand passed away over the weekend. He was 55 years old.
Biggie’s cousin Lil Cease revealed the news on his Instagram page with a post remembering the man that played a pivotal role in Hip Hop history. According to reports, the cause of 50 Grand’s death hasn’t been made public.
