Notorious B.I.G. fans braved the pouring rain to attend a street naming ceremony in his honor on Monday, June 10, in Brooklyn, New York.

Pictured L-R are B.I.G.'s son Christopher "CJ" Wallace Jr, 22, daughter, T'yanna, 25, Biggie's mother, Voletta Wallace, Mark Pitts (President of Urban Music at RCA Records), and Wayne Barrow (Vice Chairman the Christopher Wallace foundation).

Junior M.A.F.I.A. protégés Lil Cease, left, and Lil Kim, right, posed with Voletta Wallace. The rapper's name adorns a street sign at the corner of St. James Place and Fulton Street. The street was renamed in Biggie's honor after his fans campaigned to change the name.

"We did it, Brooklyn," Lil Kim told the crowd.

Lil Kim poses with B.I.G.'s son CJ. B.I.G., aka Biggie Smalls, was born and raised in Brooklyn. The rapper, whose real name is Christopher George Latore Wallace, was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles, California on March 9, 1997. He was 24.

His biggest hits include "Juicy", "Hypnotize" and "Big Poppa".

    Kim must not ever look in mirrors...her makeup is always off by two shades..

  • Michelle Peele

    No Puff? Guess he was too busy to make it to this celebration for his best friend...

  • Dr. P

    I love seeing Lil Kim's various faces, they are so very interesting. No two pics are ever the same. In these pics, she stopped blending before reaching her neck and how did she widen her face? How?

  • bemetoo

    Lil Kim looks terrible... off topic is lil mama (lip gloss) a gay lesbo? She posted something on social media about body shaming and she hashtag #pride in rainbow ? colors

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Lil Kim was beautiful before all that surgery. Lil Cease didn’t age.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I always got the gay vibe from her but I thought she dated guys.

  • Vegas1989

    I'm so sorry that she messed up her whole body. I can understand her first boob job....Her nose was cute when she came out. A skinny cute chick. I was in the Army with my hair dyed strawberry blonde...I had to go see my 1Sgt because some one ratted on me.....I got to rock it...LOL...but my nail polish was a No-Go....LOL

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Ive ALWAYS thought she was a Lesbo ESPECIALLY when she did that video If I was a Boy?

  • bemetoo

    Well they said she was a Hermaphrodite sooooo I guess That explains the masculine aura

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Guarantee he gone have his own dedication/celebration day to make it as if he's made it happen. He Somewhere tilting a ciroc bottle to his mush mouf and his face buried in that Lil Asian girls cooch UNHAPPY!

  • Connie

    Deep regrets! I bet she doesn't look at pictures of her former self. Otherwise she must be in a constant state of depression

  • Navybeans95

    Tragic...because she's actually a cute lady before the surgeries and under all that war paint

  • Clobaby_

    Wow his son is soooooooo handsome!! And is daughter favors biggie so much! So pretty .

  • Connie

    Can you imagine how beautiful she would be now if she had allowed herself to mature from this?

  • Clobaby_

    Who said he was a hero?

  • Tee Tee

    It just pains me to see a photo of her

  • Alextra Ballard

    Looking aroun ? ? Whur is Diddy

  • stav

    Seems very belated ..if they wanted to do this, but ...I guess!

  • Kayke

    Before the surgeries, for sure.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Kim is one Hot Ass Mess....Her surgery was botched so was the bleaching..She did alla this because men folks told her she was pretty enough. I wonder what they tell her now.??

  • Alextra Ballard

    Big was a hero???

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lordt!!!

  • Clobaby_

    Shit i'm tryna figure out sis!

  • Alextra Ballard

    She doesn’t look like the old Kim at all.

  • Clobaby_

    I need to have a serious talk with Lil Kim makeup artist

  • Coffee1st

    Hmmph. ??
    Probably somewhere trying to drink, smoke, screw or consume that guilt away....
    I mean... since you decided to crash the party with weightier matters and such.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Poor Ms.Wallace...she really needs some closure on who murdered her son

  • Coffee1st

    She knows.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile not even the most seasoned makeup artist can help lil Kim’s face...she is dunT

  • taurus_32

    I had blue highlights and no one in my unit noticed it was blue until I relaxed my hair while on deployment. My hair was green as hell, had to find some dye quick ?

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Kim NO!

  • Curtis

    Don't come up in here and blame men for women low self esteem. Women like comparing themselves with others and that's why all modern thots look like Kim K. They want big asses and skinny legs. Men have none to do with botched plastic surgery and fix a flat procedures.

  • Zeta Aggie

    Soo wrong but Kim looks like a recovering burn victim who has to wear thick stage makeup to cover her scars.

  • Clobaby_
  • KneeSee

    What's wrong with Kim? Who is she trying to look like? Everytime I see a pic of her, she has a different face. Jesus be some self love.

  • Seldomseen

    I have not heard the word hermaphrodite in years

  • DeepThinker

    It’s sad because I recall her saying her own father told her she was not cute. She never received validation as a child and was drawn to others who treated her the same way. Plus Hollywood is a brutal place. Looks like she may never heal her issues with self love.

  • DeepThinker

    Probably inflammation. Even professional work can cause it.

  • KLove

    i wanted to know this as well

  • DeepThinker

    ????

  • Alextra Ballard

    Oooo ok

  • AllIN19

    ????Ever ever!!!!???

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lmaooo, mannnn looka hea, I ain blaming meniz for shidt. That came from Kim’s own mouth. She’s the one that stated “men never foundT her pretty enuff” not even the ones she dated. So yew need tew address lil Kim about her self esteem issue not me. Ni, dew yew undastand?

  • Rayscoty

    I'm guessing the Korean male to female ( in black) is Lil Kim

  • Alextra Ballard

    I agree

  • 100milesperhour

    That's why I pfffft at women in the industry that deny they had tummy tucks after a baby when it's obvious...talkin' bout no doctor would do that post labor. Oh no? Who's the the doctor that performed Lil Kim's last face surgery, Jocelyn Wildenstein, Priscilla Presley? If you have the $, they'll cut wherever you point.

  • tia

    Wow, what happened to Kimberly Jones? She was such a beautiful lady. I don't know who we have now. Damn..smh

  • Alextra Ballard

    I here ya!

  • hottlanta

    I thought she was a mannequin.

  • bemetoo

    ???? well leave it to me

  • GAPeach

    I want to comment on how Kim looks, but I'm afraid she'll read the comments and get more surgery because I'm being critical.

  • StoneColdLady

    Lil Kim WAS so cute!!!??

  • Topic Influencer

    I dont even think she KNOWS anymore. I promise I dont think she does.

  • Topic Influencer

    My ex and his brothers had a whole theory on just WHICH man in this girl life messed up her self image. They swear ALL out it was the white boy. Scott Storch.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Could be but I think it was before that. Many people are harboring some Deep childhood wound. Once she got started she got addicted and went overboard.

    I just hope she doesn't project any of the "looks" stuff onto her daughter. It would be tragic.
    P.S. His life took an awful turn, yet he should be glad just to be alive.

  • Pamela

    "war paint". ?????

  • GrapeCrush

    She did all this because Biggie seemed to prefer women who looked like Faith or Charlie Baltimore. He picked those women over her; I think that’s where her insecurity about her looks came from. Really sad too because she was so effing GORGEOUS!

  • Kimberly King

    Chile. My name twin was a bad B back in the days. Beautiful, chocolate goddess with natural sex appeal. Everything was so sexy about her ! Biggie's some is handsome. His daughter though ..

  • imright

    BIG son kinda looks like J Cole

  • currvalicious

    Congratulations Brooklyn! Nice honor for the native son. CJ has grown into such a nice looking young man. I'm sure his dad would've been very proud of him & Ty'anna. Lil Kim really butchered herself. Looking like the little Asian lady who does nails in the salon.

  • MrsSpice1

    Smh. U already know how that sayin goes about the ones that claim to love u the most esp in hollywierd ?...puff got time to post lil pervert pics of him and his new toy..faith got time to get married in a las vegas hotel room to a old infamous narcissist of many seeds and many errors! Shame on both of them. And im leavin Kims entire dysfunction alone ??atleast she showed up! Shes been the most loyal out of all Junior M.A.F.I.A. to b.i.g.

  • currvalicious

    Probably had to cut all that damaged hair off from the lace fronts to start fresh.

    Kim. My God, SMDH. Big's baby boy is handsone

  • Michelle Peele

    Truth...she also just hosted a dinner in his honor not to long ago. Again, no Puff

  • Coy little wink

    I just don't get the look that Kim was going for ?

  • MrsSpice1

    Sooooo kims face is more distracting then whats goin on around CJs snatched waist??? ?? ?nahh...?!! Kudos to Big...im a just say this...we need to pay this much respect to the ones that truly solidify positive change amongst the ppl ...not the ones we glorify through superficialities.

  • Michelle Peele

    What u said is so profound. Her new look appears to be covering her scars. By the way, Zeta Alpha Chapter. Zeta Phi Beta. spring 90...NC A&T--Zphi!!!

  • Meme

    CJ used to be the image of his dad, now I think as he's lost weight he looks a bit like jcole (or is that just me?)

  • Meme

    Oooo I said that and then realised you put that already!

  • Vonn

    Lil Kim's face is a cautionary tale. Like, literally.

  • Meme

    I've heard his daughter speak once in an interview and she seems like such a sweet girl! The interviewer commented on how much she sounds like a valley girl!

  • Vonn

    Her face doesn't match anything. ??

  • Jussjess25

    Anybody else think CJ kinda resembles J.cole? Rip biggie smalls .

    I wanna say something about lil kim's face...cabbage patch dollish.. but at this point...why bother...?????

    he does

    he kinda do look like him

  • Applebootay

    it was her Daddy issues

  • the guest

    Biggie Smalls' mother is a class act.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Probably after reading a lot of negative comments about her face,I’m sure she has a some regret.

    Lil Kim’s original face is gon forever.

    That’s the look.. couldn’t figure it out. I had one with Cornsilk hair

  • Brown & Proud

    Its sooo sad that Kim hated herself so much she turned herself into... That. She was so beautiful and cute back in the day. She would have been gorgeous now had she left herself alone. She didnt need a single surgery. I feel like if she would have stayed true to herself, she would still be the baddest bish in hip hop physically and lyrically. Unfortunately, people cant take her seriously coming out the house looking all mutilated in the face and body ? https://media0.giphy.com/media/SPwq6rg2vcig8/giphy.gif

  • AListDiva29

    Kim could look great, if she got a new makeup artist. It's sad she is so confident as Lil Kim, but obviously very insecure as Kimberly Jones!

  • tintin

    Kim clearly made only white doctors work on her. She should go to DR and make them fix this atrocity

  • MsVAllDay

    Kim actually doesn't look as bad as she normally does. Did she have some type of work done to try to fix her face???? Still not great, but progress.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I agree...goes to show that you can be a beautiful women but if you dont have self worth and men talk down on you it will get in your head...she didn't need an ounce of surgery...she was the first woman in rap that I admired and wanted to emulate...when she walked out of that airplane in the Player's Anthem video it was perfection...

  • SpillyNillie

    She was a naturally cute girl. An amazing makeup artist could've contoured the hell outta her face to achieve whatever look she was going for. The surgery was so unnecessary. Even worse, the fact that she wears her makeup 5 shades lighter than her natural color.

  • Raquel

    Now, if only black folk could campaign in this manner for more pressing issues, we'd be aight.

    Good sh*t though still.

  • the guest

    Definite progress. Hopefully she will continue to ease up on the surgeries and bleaching, and allow her natural color to shine through. Kim was a naturally pretty girl, never needed surgery.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Love Kim, FOREVER! G.O.A.T.!

    Her makeup is a few shades lighter than her neck and arms, weight gain, and continued use of fillers, got Kim not looking her best! Without makeup, she would look much better!

    It’s sad how much programming goes into making women believe their looks is their worth, or I’m not quite enough or good enough!

    We are often measured (by ourselves or others) by what we look like, and a man, what he does or the amount of money he has!

  • the guest

    This street naming ceremony is long overdue. Fulton & St. James Place should have been named for Biggie Smalls when he passed away right after his funeral processional brought out the entire borough of Brooklyn, NY. Biggie’s music put Bed-Stuy on the global musical, cultural, trendsetter map and this honor is long overdue and beyond deserved. His mother, son, and daughter should be honored with keys to the city.

  • Karen Brady

    But stay out of the mini bar while there.

  • the guest

    The mini bar. Lord have mercy.

  • Black Dynomiiiite!!!
  • the guest

    1980s and 1990s hip hop colorism broke Kim’s heart. It was sick how hip hop literally revered light skin when the rap culture was emerging back in the day.

    It didn’t help that Biggie was her boyfriend and wanted her to have an abortion but he opted to marry and procreate with fair skinned Faith Evans. That hurt Kim deeply and she’s been erasing her skin color and distorting her face ever since.

  • AListDiva29

    That's not what I heard, but ok!

  • Trey

    how does this help the black community?

  • the guest

    Facts:

    1) 80’s and 90’s colorism was a force in hip hop.

    2) Kim loved and had an abortion per Biggie.

    3) Biggie wouid not commit to Kim because she was not the right color and image for next level fame. (Same reason Jay Z would not commit to Foxy)

    4) Biggie did marry and procreate with Faith because she fit the expected color image of those times.

    5) Light skinned women did come up off of the colorism of early hip hop.

    Ok.

  • Carrington

    One would think that Lil Kim is Biggie’s widow and they were still together and he WASNT dating Charli Baltimore when he died the way she carries on.

  • Parent

    Big's son is so cute. Looking like a light skin version of Big Poppa!

  • Parent

    That chick right there in that gif is sexy as hell, you hear me! Sexy as hell!

    Damn I was like who this dude remind me of!

  • Parent

    Been bugging me who he remind me of.

  • Parent

    Sexy as hell, you hear me!

  • SayWhatNow?

    This is why people should leave Reginea Carter the hell alone. That girl is fine just the way GOD made her and so was Kim!

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    My thoughts exactly...

  • sjames

    it's ok bc i see THiS kim in her daughter and her daughter is sooooo precious and beautiful

  • Brown & Proud

    Yes!! She could have become a legend, icon. Now its hard to take her seriously. I'm sure she regrets what shes done to herself.

  • Nicole Myles

    I thought BIG already had a street named in his honor. Seems like NIP got his within a month

  • The_Blaque_Widow

    I always found it odd and borderline disrespectful that she plasters herself all over anything to do with Big when he has a whole ass widow...like sit your ass down somewhere. Then on the flip side she was his artist that he groomed and I believe some of her antics come from a place of respect and not wanting his legacy to fade because if there was no Big there would be no Kim. This woman continues to eat because of him even though she’s managed to fuck it up her whole relevance is due to him. And where’s Faith?

  • bemetoo

    But she was just bragging about her long natural healthy hair
