In Memoriam: The Notorious B.I.G
By 19, a local DJ named 50 Grand made a mixtape for Big that ended up in the Source magazine's Unsigned Hype column. Puff Daddy heard it and eventually signed Big to a deal. By 1993, he had a song in the movie Who's The Man? called "Party and Bulls—t." From there as they say "the rest is history".Biggie was shot to death March 9, 1997, only 6 months after Tupac Shakur was murdered. The two rappers had been friends, and there's a lot of speculation that their killings were connected. No arrest has ever been made and most suspects connected to the crime have died under questionable circumstances.
