Legendary Rapper Born Christopher Wallace, the rapper formerly known as Biggie Smalls became the most famous act on Puff Daddy’s fledgling label, Bad Boy Records, laying the cornerstone of what would become an entertainment empire. Though this Brooklyn rap icon only released two albums (the classics Ready to Die and Life After Death) before his violent death on March 9, 1997, his undeniable genius as a lyricist and MC solidified his standing as one of the greatest rappers of all time. B.I.G. was married to R&B star Faith Evans and produced Junior M.A.F.I.A. a group of his friends from Brooklyn, which also included breakout star Lil' Kim.
