Biggie Remembered

Events, Interviews, My Dudes

The greatest rapper of all time, Biggie Smalls aka The Notorious B.I.G., died 15 years ago on March 9th, 1997. To celebrate his life and remember his contributions to hip-hop, various sites have been paying tribute to B.I.G. today. Thanks to UpNorthTrips, who I helped put a Biggie Tribute together with in 2010, we can check out 15 of the most important links on the 15th anniversary of his murder, including a chilling interview done with a former LAPD detective by Complex Magazine’s Rob Kenner (who I work very closely with on the reg) uncovering who exactly is responsible for killing Biggie.
