The city's Metropolitan Transit Authority will sell a special edition MetroCard featuring Biggie — born Christopher Wallace — for his would-be 50th birthday on Saturday, May 21.

The MetroCard will be sold at the Lafayette Ave., Clinton/Washington Ave., and Atlantic Ave./Barclays Center subway stations near Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood where he grew up.

The iconic Empire State Building will also be lit up in red the same night, with a crown spinning in its mast. Additionally, Brooklyn, NY's Barclays Center will feature a video montage of the late rapper that will be displayed above the venue’s entrance.
