Notorious B.I.G.

During the recording sessions for Life After Death in 1996, Biggie and his cousin Lil’ Cease were involved in a car accident while Cease was behind the wheel. The incident shattered Biggie’s left leg and confined him to a wheelchair. After two months of therapy, he still couldn’t walk with a rod through his leg and was later forced to use a cane to get around. His song “Long Kiss Goodnight” mentions the accident with the lyrics “Ya still tickle me, I used to be as strong as Ripple be/’Til Lil’ Cease crippled me.”
