Fabolous On Receiving The Key To Brooklyn And Being Honored On The Anniversary Of BIG’s Death
On March 9, 2017, Icon Talks honored philanthropist and entertainment mogul Fabolous in Brooklyn, NY. Showing a sense of community and positivity on the anniversary of Biggie’s death. This memorable event, sponsored by Porsche, was held at Brooklyn’s prestigious landmark, Grand Courtroom in Borough Hall. Fabolous gave a vivid view into his life and dived into his business, music, and philanthropic endeavours and success thereof with Icon Talks founder, Johnathan Burns. Fabulous had major support in the building with friends Wale Doug E Fresh, Lenny S, Rotimi, Ryan Leslie, Tahiry and many more! Before the event kicked off That’s Enuff got a chance to ask Fabolous how it felt to be honored on the day we celebrate the life of BIG.
Fabolous: I didn’t know if it was a lucky coincidence or it was planned like that but of course this is a great day just in the honor of biggie. So it’s a great day to be honored on the same day that we also remember Biggie and remember what he brought to the game. Hopefully I’ll be able to continue to represent Brooklyn the same way he did.
Fabolous was presented with an Icon Award by Sharon Carpenter and fellow Icon Talks founder, John Hartsfield. The Brooklyn Borough President, Eric Adams, also honored Fabolous with The Key to Brooklyn and Proclamation for his contributions to the community.
