R.I.P Notorious B.I.G

Today marks the thirteenth anniversary of rap legend Christopher Wallace a.k.a "Notorious B.I.G's" death.

The 24-year-old rap star lost his life March 9, 1997, by a drive-by gunman who opened fire on him as he departed a Vibe Magazine party in Los Angeles.

The spray of bullets killed Biggie instantly, leaving paramedics helpless in the fight to save his life. The unknown gunman(s) has yet to be found and the homicide remains "unsolved."

Many believe Biggie's death was in retaliation for the murder of Tupac Shakur, who died just six months before Biggie's shooting. This mystery has riddled the music industry and the lives of the people and fans who loved both Biggie and Tupac most. While many search for closure to the unsolved homicides, one thing remains clear...their spirit is still alive.

As we celebrate the life of B.I.G we remember the positive impact he's made in the music industry and lives he touched. Last year, P. Diddy released the movie "Notorious B.I.G" which tells the life of the young star and his struggle from the hood to Hollywood.

P. Diddy's v-blog he talks about how Biggie's death affected him and his music, and how producing the film gave him his spirit back and closure in knowing that everything happens for a reason beyond our understanding and control. Check it out below.
