Additional Information on Hakeem Jeffries

On March 9, 2017, Jeffries marked the twentieth anniversary of the death of the 24-year-old rap star Biggie Smalls, also known as Notorious B.I.G., by reciting some lyrics from the rapper’s 1994 song “Juicy”: “‘It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up! magazine. Salt-n-Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine. Hangin’ pictures on my wall, every Saturday Rap Attack, Mr. Magic, Marley Marl.” He also characterized Small as having been “the King of New York” and “one of the world’s most important hip hop stars.” Jeffries ended his remaeks by saying, “Where Brooklyn at?”
