On March 9, 1997, the world lost one of the best rappers of all time when Notorious B.I.G. was fatally shot in Los Angeles. 17 years later, Diddy, Faith Evans and more are remembering their lost friend.
You may know him as Notorious B.I.G., Biggie Smalls, Big or maybe even Christopher Wallace. Regardless of what you call him when listening to his songs, you know you’re listening to some of the best rap music in the game. Celebs took to Twitter and Instagram on March 9 to pay respects and remember Biggie — the one and only.
