Ten years ago today, the Triple Beam Dream passed.
I remember driving in New Canaan, Conn., and tuning into Hot 97. Angie Martinez was crying, taking calls, asking "when is it going to end?" (recall that Tupac had also recently passed). Realizing what had happend, I too shed some tears. Ten years on, looking out at the hip-hop landscape, Biggy Smalls is missed more than ever.
