R.I.P The Notorious B.I.G 1972-1997
14 years ago today, a great rapper by the name Notorious B.I.G was shot in california.His murder case is still unsolved to this day. Notorious B.I.G's solo album, "Ready to Die," was released in September 1994. He was nominated for a Best Solo Rap Performance at the Grammys twice, once in 1996 for "Big Poppa" and again 1998 for "Hypnotize. His final solo album "Life After Death" was released shortly after his death on March 26 and went on to sell more than 10 million copies.
The rapper is perhaps best known for his feud with rapper Tupac Shakur and the East Coast/West Coast rap rivalry that escalated after the death of Shakur in 1996. Much like Notorious B.I.G, Shakur was gunned down in a vehicle in Las Vegas.
