If the infamous [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Notorious B.I.G[/lastfm] had lived to see 2011, he would have celebrated his 38th birthday this year– still young enough to put out a couple more hip-hop albums, retiring rich and taking naps on beds stuffed with hundred dollar bills.
Fourteen years ago, Notorious B.I.G. (or Biggie Smalls as he was fondly called) was fatally murdered by a mysterious assailant. While Biggie’s name lives on, his tragic death is still an unsolved LAPD cold case.
Slightly ironic considering Biggie’s famous lament that with “mo money” comes “mo problems.”
