CHRISTOPHER WALLACE aka NOTORIOUS B.I.G
On March 9, 1997, rapper Christopher Wallace was killed during a drive by shooting at an intersection in Los Angeles. Many people in the industry and in law enforcement believe that this murder was due to the legendary East Coast - West Coast rivalry, noting that Tupac Shakur was also killed by a drive-by approximately 6 months prior.
Christopher Wallace was the father of one son with Faith Evans. He was born in Brooklyn and tangled with the law before making it in music.
