Happy Birthday Big! Christopher Wallace was killed in a drive-by shooting in LA on March 9th, 1997. He was only 24 years old. If Biggie were still alive, he would be celebrating his 40th birthday.

Biggie’s murder is an unsolved mystery. Most theories regarding motives reference the similarities in the drive-by shooting death of Tupac Shakur.

Biggie married singer Faith Evans after meeting at a Bad Boy photo shoot. Faith spoke candidly about an altercation she had with Biggie protégé and mistress, Lil Kim, in her book “Keeping The Faith”.

Kim performed at Northern Lights in Clifton Park this past Saturday. In an exclusive interview with Hot 99.1, she spoke on how a Biggie hologram (like the Tupac one that debuted at Coachella) would make her feel emotionally:
