Brooklyn rapper Notorious B.I.G., born Christopher Wallace, died on March 9, 1997, so this year marks 20 years since his death. At the time, Biggie was sitting in his car at a traffic light on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, California when an unidentified car pulled up and opened fire. Biggie was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but he couldn’t be saved. Many suspect his death was linked to the East Coast-West Coast rivalry which centered around his feud with Tupac, who was also shot just six months earlier. Even today, years after both deaths, their music is still listened to and influencing the many more generations of rappers.
