Hip-hop fan to pay tribute to Biggie Smalls on upcoming DemonFM radio show

By Alex Leadbitter

A lifelong hip-hop fan is set to make an appearance on DemonFM to pay tribute to deceased rapper Biggie Smalls.

Abdi Ibrahim, 20, is an economics student at DMU was spurred on by the recent 20th anniversary of the rapper’s death.

The hip-hop icon was shot dead in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles, California in 1997, during the infamous East Coast versus West Coast hip-hop rivalry that dominated the music scene in the mid-90s.

The Notorious B.I.G is one of hip-hop’s most beloved performers and Abdi wants to take part in a tribute to the artist on an upcoming radio show.

He said: “I have grown up listening the Biggie; he’s one of the most influential artists of all time across any genre.

“I’m friends with one of the hosts on DemonFM and he’s agreed to allow me to take part in the show as a guest and to give my appreciation on air; I felt the need to express my love for Biggie on a larger scale than just sending out a tweet or an online post.

“Going on the radio allows me to play my favourite songs and talk how much each of them means to me and how they’ve impacted me throughout my life.”

Although it is not clear yet when exactly Ibrahim will make an appearance on DemonFM, all parties are very excited about the idea and are looking forward to paying homage to one of the most adored and well respected performers of all time.
