Legendary rapper Notorious B.I.G aka Biggie Smalls, the greatest rapper of all time, was gunned down in drive-by shooting in Los Angeles on this day in 1997, a case that remains unsolved to this day despite numerous conspiracies about his assailant’s true identity. He was 24.
Born Christopher Wallace, he would become the most famous act on Sean Diddy Combs’ Bad Boy label and would briefly be married to R&B star Faith Evans.
Ready to Die and Life After Death, the rap icon’s only two albums, cemented his status as one of the most prolific lyricists in hip hop.
