BET has big plans to pay tribute to the late Notorious B.I.G. tomorrow (Thursday). The network will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the rapper’s death with a slate of special programming called #Biggie20.
First there’s a BET Social tribute called “Kick in the Lyrics” which will feature Jason Derulo, Dej Loaf, Method Man and more rapping to Biggie’s “Juicy” — a cappella.
There’s also a new special called I Talked To: Biggie. The program will feature Lil Cease, Raekwon, DJ Premier and 112 telling behind-the-scenes stories about the larger-than-life rapper. It will be a digital-only premiere, rolling out on BET.com and the BET Now app starting at noon ET.
And BET Jams will present a marathon of Biggie-themed music video playlists and original content during its TBT (ThrowBack Thursday) hours starting at 7 a.m. ET.

- No matter what your age is, you should know about the greats like Biggie Smalls.
- Get ready for a day of debates about if Biggie is over or underrated, really deserves to be in the Top 5 and where he’d be if he were still here.
- Just because BET has a TV tribute doesn’t mean you can’t honor Biggie in your own way.
