The Notorious B.I.G. is Brooklyn, y’all. The late, great MC lived and breathed BK, and in honor of the 2013 VMAs being held in his hometown borough, we have to pay homage to Biggie Smalls and his roots. So, how do we do that? With clothes, duh. We scoured the internetz to find you the most decked-out Biggie duds so you can show off your Brooklyn pride in style. First up, we have a graphic stars and stripes sweater ($65) complete with a double dose of Biggie (in a Coogi sweater, no less!). This is a surefire way to let the world know you rep for the King of New York—in the coolest way possible.
If you’re looking for something a little less graphic-heavy, we’re obsessed with this simple, illustrated tee of Biggie Smalls sporting his infamous crown ($46). The black and white design will match literally anything in your wardrobe, and we can’t think of a time and place where we wouldn’t be wearing a Notorious B.I.G. tee. For accessories, we’re LOVING this “Junya MAFIA” beanie ($32) that is a simultaneous homage to Biggie’s Junior M.A.F.I.A. and Junya Watanabe of Commes des Garcons. #MUSIC #FASHION Obvi your iPhone needs to be decked out in B.I.G. style too, so we chose this Biggie Stardust case ($35) for that extra special nod to David Bowie. Sometimes we just need to face the fact that we LOVE Biggie, and this acrylic ring ($18) should definitely do the trick. (Bonus: There’s also a East Coast vs. West Coast earring set to match!) But tell us, will you be sporting any Biggie merch this Sunday? Let us know in the comments below!
