Atlanta TV anchors talk traffic using Notorious B.I.G. lyrics

News in Atlanta gets a little hotter.

On the 20-year death anniversary of the late Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace last Thursday, March 9, WSB-TV Channel 2 News in Atlanta paid tribute to the late rapper. The crew substituted their usual traffic news lingo by reporting traffic using Biggie’s lyrics.

Not sure who came up with it but it sure was clever and a great way to pay homage to the late rapper who passed away at 24.
