The daughter of slain rapper NOTORIOUS B.I.G. paid tribute to her late father on Sunday (16Aug09) as she celebrated her 16th birthday with a star-studded party in New York City.
The hip-hop star, real name Christopher Wallace, was killed aged 24 in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles in 1997 - when his daughter T'yanna Wallace was only three.
The teen donned a custom-made pink dress and matching sneakers for the bash at Manhattan lounge Taj, which featured a special performance from Day n' Nite hitmaker Kid Cudi.
However, T'yanna admitted it was the button over her heart emblazoned with her late father's face that kept her spirits up.
She tells the New York Daily News, "I needed to have him here with me. I feel like I'm all grown up now."
