Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy is really, really, really pushing for Notorious B.I.G. to have his legacy cemented. Puff Daddy went online this week to encourage fans to vote his protégé into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

On Tuesday, the 50-year-old music icon lit up social media with salutes to Biggie and his inevitable induction.

The late rap icon and music mogul Whitney Houston are among 16 acts nominated for the 2020 class.

Years after their deaths, Whitney Houston and The Notorious B.I.G. could be enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year. Houston, described by many as the greatest singer of her generation, and legendary rapper B.I.G., whose real name was Christopher Wallace, are among nine first-time nominees and 16 overall under consideration for induction for the 35th annual Hall of Fame ceremony in Cleveland in May, the Rock Hall announced Tuesday.

Last May, Notorious protégé Lil’ Kim shared pics of herself alongside everyone from B.I.G.’s daughter T’yanna Dream Wallace to Fabolous.

The same week, Kim reflected on launching a first-annual B.I.G. event.
