The late rapper from Brooklyn, NYC who many refer to as one of the finest M.C.s ever to hold a mic, is now the face of these limited edition cans from St. Louis-based, Anheuser-Busch and their flagship beer, Budweiser. This unbelievable tribute to Biggie Smalls features him in his trademark Kangol hat overlooking the Brooklyn skyline.

Brewbound reported that, “The Notorious B.I.G. Budweiser Tall Boy can is the most iconic can collaboration we’ve done to date,” said Daniel Blake, Group VP Marketing, Budweiser & Value at Anheuser-Busch. “We’re grateful for the collaboration with the Christopher Wallace Estate and Biggie’s mother Voletta Wallace to bring this special can to life so that we can celebrate the legacy of the greatest rapper of all time.”

Where can I buy Biggie Budweiser?

These cans are collectible merchandise and you could have purchased them in the rapper's hometown of New York City this summer. The King of Beers made sure to release the beverage, along with associated merch, dedicated to the "King of New York" in the city that helped give rise to his fame.

The beer stein below isn't Biggie Merch, but it would be cool to quaff a Biggie Bud out of a Bud Beer Stein.

About Budweiser

Budweiser, an American-style lager, was introduced in 1876 when company founder Adolphus Busch set out to create the United States’ first truly national beer brand – brewed to be universally popular and transcend regional tastes. Each batch of Budweiser stays true to the same family recipe used by five generations of Busch family brewmasters. Budweiser is a medium-bodied, flavorful, crisp and pure beer with blended layers of premium American and European hop aromas, brewed for the perfect balance of flavor and refreshment. Budweiser is made using time-honored methods including “kraeusening” for natural carbonation and Beechwood aging, which results in unparalleled balance and character.
