March 9th marked the anniversary of the death of Biggie Smalls (Christopher Wallace) also known as The Notorious B.I.G. Biggie was gunned down 20 years ago in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles.
A driver in a Chevrolet Impala SS pulled up alongside the vehicle Biggie was in and rolled down his window. The driver then drew a 9 mm blue-steel pistol. Biggie was hit four times with bullets. The legendary rap star was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he died soon that night at the age of 24-years-old.
No one has been charged with the murder of Biggie Smalls for whoever killed him remains a mystery still this day.
Many artists celebrated the legacy of B.I.G. by posting on social media for his influence on hip-hop.
