The Notorious B.I.G. / Right On! Magazine Contest

The Notorious B.I.G. Biggie Smalls I'll be Missing You Right On! Magazine Contest

In 1997, Right On! Magazine posted this contest months after Biggie's death on 3/09/97. The first 10 readers to answer their trivia question won a VHS tape of both ‘I’ll Be Missing You’ and ‘We’ll Always Love Big Poppa.’ The trivia question was: “What is The Notorious B.I.G.’s original MC name?” Mind you, this was back when you had to snail mail stuff and WAIT. Needless to say, I didn't send it in and thus didn't win. I do, however, remember picking up the Tribute tape with those tracks on it - even with the songs being on the radio hourly, I still had to own it. It also came with a large-sized sticker if I remember right? Unrelated, I didn't know Sting's publisher was 'Illegal Songs, Inc.' - that's one of the better names, lol, classic. R.I.P. Biggie.
