Christopher George Latore Wallace (May 21, 1972 – March 9, 1997), best known as The Notorious B.I.G., was an American rapper and hip hop artist.

Biggie Smalls, also known as Notorious B.I.G., was a hip-hop star. He was friends with Sean.

Christopher Wallace also known as Notorious B.I.G., became a drug dealer at a young age. He started experimenting with music as a teenager and, not long after, befriended Sean “Puffy” Combs. His 1994 debut album,Ready to Die, was a smash hit, and his long-running feud with fellow rapper, Tupac Shakur, helped to shape his career. Biggie was killed in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997.

I think that it was messed up how Biggie Smalls was killed, I remember I was listening to he music on my birthday. then 3 days later I heard he was dead. I couldn’t believe it, my friends and I was talking about it.

Biggie Smalls was killed after Tupac, They was the Best Rapper of all Times. Why did they have to go, Some of my friends said that Tupac faked his death and came back to kill to Biggie. Because Tupac had a closed Casket, so that mean no one saw Tupac body and it was easy for him to kill biggie. I don’t know about that.

Other said, that Tupac crew killed Biggie. I said, that the whole thing is messed up. No one set up Tupac, he just went crazy for a min. After he got shot at, and blamed it on Biggie Smalls.

in Brooklyn, New York, in the neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant. Biggie, or Notorious B.I.G, as he’d later become known, experienced a rough childhood—at an early age, he was surrounded by drug addicts and dealers. As a result, by his early teens, Biggie had joined the life that was all around him.

Which is why I think people took to Notorious Biggie Smalls, almost everyone grow in the hood. With drug user & drug seller,  and hanging out with homies on the corner rapping & Selling drugs trying to pass the time.

Notorious said,”Hustlers were my heroes,” he once said. “Everything happened on the strip I grew up in. It didn’t matter where you went, it was all in your face.”

At the age of 17, Biggie was arrested for selling crack, and spent nine months in a North Carolina prison before making bail. As he navigated his young, uncertain life, Biggie started making music. He hooked on with a crew called the “Old Gold Brothers,” and began experimenting on his own.

I think, this is when Biggie Smalls really looked at himself and let everything came out in his rhymes. Then he blow up!

Around his neighborhood, Biggie Smalls, as he called himself then, began building a reputation as a musician. After a tape of his landed in the hands of Mister Cee, a well-known DJ, Smalls was featured in the hip-hop publication, The Source.

The article was enough to catch the attention of Sean “Puffy” Combs, a young producer at Uptown Entertainment, a New York-based label specializing in hip-hop and rhythm and blues. When Combs split off from Uptown to start his own label, Bad Boy Entertainment, he brought Smalls with him.

After Puffy saw Biggie, he knew he had a STAR.

Immediately, Notorious B.I.G., as he now called himself, got to work, appearing on a 1993 remix of Mary J. Blige‘s single, Real Love, and followed it up with a second Blige remix, What’s the 411? His debut as a solo artist came with the single, Party and Bullshit, on the soundtrack to the film, Who’s the Man? (1993)

In 1994, Notorious B.I.G. released his debut album, Ready to Die, which told the story of his life, from drug dealer to rapper. Backed with hits like Juicy and Big Poppa, the record went platinum and the young hip-hop artist became a full-fledged star.

I heard about Ready to Die album, but I didn’t get a chance to hear it, a lot of people said it was raw.

That same year, The Source named Notorious B.I.G. Best New Artist, Best Live Performer, and Lyricist of the Year.

That because Biggie Smalls was a Boss!

As his star power increased, Biggie did his best to share his prestige. He backed the work of several rappers that he’d originally performed with while starting out in Brooklyn, and took to the studio in support of other artists on Sean “Puffy” Combs’s label. He also teamed up with such stars as Michael Jackson and R. Kelly. By the close of 1995, Biggie was one of music’s best-selling and most sought after performers.

However, success and wealth hardly brought peace to Biggie’s life.

In the immediate aftermath of Ready to Die‘s popularity, the rapper found himself in constant fear. In 1994, he told The New York Times that he was disliked for having more money, which came with his fame. The large rapper—at 6 feet and three inches, and tipping the scales at nearly 400 pounds—said that he jumped whenever the door to his apartment building opened, fearing that someone might want to hurt him.

I feel that Biggie & Tupac were a like for as both of them was thinking someone was after them. I guess if you live a hard fast life, then become famous. You start to get anxiety.

Biggie’s fear led to anxiety, which led to spurts of aggression. In May 1995, he allegedly beat up a man after they got into a dispute over a canceled performance. Later, he took a baseball bat to a group of autograph seekers. His most famous battles, however, occurred with others in the hip-hop industry, most notably with Tupac Shakur, Marion “Suge” Knight and Death Row Records. The rivalry turned into an East Coast-West Coast feud (with Combs and Biggie representing the East), and the tension escalated in 1994, when Shakur and a member of the Wu-Tang Clan were shot and robbed. The two men survived and Shakur came out blazing, accusing Biggie and Combs of orchestrating the attack. Both vehemently denied the accusation.

People don’t understand that anxiety, can cause people to do things that they wouldn’t do. Tupac had anxiety after he got shot at, which made him think he friend biggie was out to get him. Biggie had anxiety, because of all the problems he had and the Tupac iusse. Then the fused begin.

Shakur added fuel to the flames with a pointed slam on the East Coast rap world in the single, “Hit ‘Em Up,” in which he claimed to have slept with Biggie’s wife, Faith Evans. In September 1996, East Coast-West Coast battle heated up even further, when Shakur was murdered in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. Rumors of Biggie’s involvement immediately began to make the rounds, and when the rapper was one of the few hip-hop artists not to make an appearance at an anti-violence summit that was held in Harlem a few weeks later, the finger-pointing intensified.

A lot of people have said, that Tupac knew he was going to die, because of his album. Of a man whom have faked his death, and others have said that Tupac sold his soul to the devil. Me, I think it was all over a miss understanding that could have been avoided.

Shakur’s death amplified Biggie’s fears about his own life, and his concern was tragically validated on March 9, 1997. Biggie, who had just come out of the Soul Train Music Awards, was sitting in an SUV when another vehicle pulled up to his car, opened fire and killed him. Biggie was only 24 years old at the time.

Now, we have two Famous most liked rappers, that is now dead over a miss. That could have been solved long before this had happen.

For many fans, the murder was viewed as retaliation for Shakur’s murder. Biggie’s death shook the music world, prompting fears that the hip-hop world might erupt into a full-fledged war, ending numerous other lives. That didn’t happen, fortunately, but Biggie’s friends, family and fans never received any answers regarding his death. Despite years of speculation regarding the identity of the gunman, Biggie’s case was never solved. Biggie’s family has been outspoken about its disappointment with the handling of the case, going as far as accusing the Los Angeles Police Department of employing rogue officers who were involved in the murder.

In 2002, filmmaker Nick Broomfield released the documentaryBiggie and Tupac, which featured a round of interviews with people associated with both men. More recently, in May 2012, former L.A. police detective Greg Kading, who had worked on Biggie’s case, told VH1 that he had incriminating evidence against Wardell “Poochie” Fouse, a gang member belonging to the Mob Piru Bloods. In 2002, filmmaker Nick Broomfield released the documentaryBiggie and Tupac, which featured a round of interviews with people associated with both men.
