MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- The Empire State Building was lit in red and white with a crown saying '50' in honor of what would have been Biggie Smalls' 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.
