On the 18th anniversary of Biggie Small’s death, Hip-Hop’s golden child Kendrick Lamar paid homage to the fallen rapper by freestyling over one of his beats.

While stopping by Big Boy’s new L.A. radio show 92.3 FM, K.Dot did what he does best while rhyming over Notorious B.I.G.’s “The What”

Last week, Kendrick broke Twitter when he announced the release date for his highly anticipated sophomore album, which will hit iTunes March, 23.
