Here comes a special offering from Michael Coomer, aka Lace Curtains, who sends out an unlikely, but quite amazing dedication to The Notorious B.I.G. The Harlem native laments the tragic passing of the rap icon by titling his latest song after the very LA intersection where Biggie was shot, “Wilshire and Fairfax.” The song comes off his upcoming full-length project, A Signed Piece of Paper. Regarding the song and his new album, he says:

“The title of the album comes from an old saying—‘Don’t come to Hollywood without a signed piece of paper’—from when talent scouts would go to beauty contests in places like Des Moines and tell a girl she should come to Hollywood to be a movie star. Back then, the actors were contract players for studios so the actor would come out and if they couldn’t get signed by the studio, their options were usually pretty limited and often rough. This song is about Biggie Smalls. Wilshire and Fairfax was the corner where he was shot.”

A Signed Piece of Paper arrives October 28 via Coomers’ own Female Fantasy, with a collab tape release coming on Burger Records.
