via Daily Prompt: Notorious

Strange that, I know the word, but I immediately went to rap, or its more common over-arching term, hip-hop. Mainly because I remember the name Notorious B.I.G.  (aka Biggie Smalls, born Christopher Wallace) from the days of Rage (our national music video show every weekend) and when our two sons were engaged with the genre. The late eighties and nineties were a fascinating time in musical development, and hip-hop was in full flow.

Notorious had several hits, and charted well in the US and overseas, he is said to be one the most influential artists in the genre.

Nototrious was the epitomy of a description of notorious in human form. He was famous, well-known, and he was also famous for living on the bad side, drugs and gangs, which eventually caught up with him in 1997, when at the age of 24 he was fatally shot. If you read his life story he lived up to his stage name, he really was notorious.
