Did You Know: Big had to change his name from Biggie Smalls to The Notorious B.I.G. because another unpopular(who happened to be white) artist had that name already, The Name Biggie Smalls originally came from a 1975 Sidney Poitier, Bill Cosby film Let’s Do It Again, and was their 2nd film together. His name Frank White came from the movie “King of New York” starring Christopher Walken, Larry Fishburne, Wesley Snipes, and David Caruso, BIG was considered not just the “King Of NY” But the “King Of Hip Hop”.
