Notorious B.I.G

Born: May 21, 1972 Brooklyn, New York

At a early age he was surrounded by drug addicts and dealers. Seeing this life Biggie had jump into the lifestyle. Getting locked up at the age 17 for selling crack, gave him 9 month's in a North Carolina prison (this is really when he began writing).

After he got out he knew he had to support his little girl, and it was time to get it that's when he and Sean "Puffy" Combs met. Uniting being apart of Bad Boys Entertainment, that Puffy started when he was released from Uptown.

His album " Ready to Die", jumped off his career in 1994

Juicy- a song in that propelled him the spotlight. Once everyone had heard the rest of the "Ready to Die", it was clear he wasn't going anywhere any time soon.

Year's went by and as they did tension rose with him beefing with Tupac, leading to caios, leading to both of them being killed.

Death: March 9, 1997 Los Angeles, CA
