Really? Anger, disbelief percolate when Dem pays tribute to deceased rapper on House floor

A senior Democratic congressman paid tribute on the House floor Thursday to a dead rapper.

While his fellow party members are busy stonewalling the implementation of President Donald Trump’s agenda, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries used his time to eulogize rap artist Biggie Smalls, also known as The Notorious B.I.G., Big Poppa and Frank White.

Thursday marked the 20th anniversary that the rapper, born Christopher Wallace, was shot and killed in Los Angeles by another black male while Wallace was in his SUV at a traffic light.

“Biggie Smalls, Frank White, the king of New York. He died 20 years ago today in a tragedy that occurred in Los Angeles. But his words live on forever,” the New York Democrat said alongside a blown up photo of the rapper.”

“I got the privilege of representing the district where Biggie Smalls was raised. We know he went from negative to positive and emerged as one of the world most important hip hop stars. His rags-to-riches life story is the classic embodiment of the American dream,” Jeffries continued. “Biggie Smalls is gone but he will never be forgotten. Rest in piece Notorious B.I.G.. Where Brooklyn at?”

Jeffries tweeted:

Even fans of the late rapper were far from enthusiastic for this homage taking up the House’s business. Some saw it as nothing more than an exercise in cheap pandering for votes.

Wallace’s murderer was never caught and the case remains unsolved to this day. The Los Angeles Times reported that the key suspect was likely a member of the Crips and that the motive was financial.
