In honor of B.I.G. Day yesterday (March 9), Joey Bada$$ paid tribute to The Notorious B.I.G. and the borough that forever keeps it thorough on a brand new song, "Brooklyn's Own."

"Ain't nothing worst than a Flatbush man with a gun in his hand ready to die for rubber band filled with a couple grand."
