Regarded to this day as one of the greatest rappers of all time, Wallace hit the music scene in September 1994 with the release of his acclaimed debut album, Ready to Die.
The album featured hit singles “Juicy” and “Big Poppa.”
Biggie’s high-profile beef with fellow rapper Tupac Shakur also played a major role in his catapult to superstardom.
Some conspiracy theorists believe that Tupac Shakur – who was fatally wounded in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas six months earlier — was behind Biggie’s death.
Biggie had just stepped out of a Soul Train Music Awards after-party on March 9, 1997, when a Chevrolet Impala pulled up beside his green GMC Suburban SUV at a red traffic light stop.
