Notorious B.I.G.

Notorious B.I.G.

Hailing from Brooklyn, NYC, Christopher Wallace (Notorious B.I.G or Biggie Smalls) was, and still is, considered one of the greatest rappers of all time. Following the release of his debut album in 1994, Ready To Die, Biggie became a central figure in Hop Hop culture, once again, re-emphasising the prominence of East-coast, New York rap. The album hosted multiple platinum records, including "Juicy", "Big Poppa" and "One More Chance". Following the infamous East-West coast Hip Hop feud, Biggie was gunned down in a drive-by shooting in LA in 1997, aged just 24. His posthumous second studio album, Life After Death (1997) was released just 16 days after his death. The album went on to hit No.1 on the US album charts and in 2000, became one of only a handful of Hip Hop albums to be certified Diamond. Biggie, to date, has sold over 17 million albums in the US alone. His loose, easy flows, dramatic storytelling and overall presence continues to have a profound impact on Hip Hop music and culture. His legacy lives on.
