The Empire State Building had a light show in honor of what would have been Notorious B.I.G.’s 50th birthday.

Lines were extremely long for commemorative MetroCards with a portrait of the rap icon.

The cards went on sale just after midnight at vending machines in Central Brooklyn. The cards are already popping up on eBay with someone asking $5,000.

Biggie was born and raised in Brooklyn.
