Biggie

16 years ago in the wee hours of March 9, 1997, shots rang out on the streets of L.A. and we lost one of the greatest MC’s in hip-hop history.

Christopher Wallace a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G. a.k.a. Biggie, was 24 when his powerful voice was silenced. Along with Queensbridge native, Nas, Biggie re-established New York’s place in the hip-hop hierarchy despite the popularity of West Coast artists such as Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. One of hip-hop’s greatest lyricists, Biggie had just dropped Life After Death and appeared ready for the next phase of his life – that never came.

Years later, his legacy remains as powerful today as the day he left us. In 2009, Fox Searchlight released a film biopic based on B.I.G.’s life, Notorious. Rest in peace, Don Dada, your music will live in the hearts of your fans FOREVER!!!! #biggie #brooklynsfinest #frankwhite
