Christopher Wallace, known as Notorious BIG or Biggie, released his debut album, ‘Ready To Die’ in 1994 and became a force to reckon with in the eastern coast of Brooklyn, sparking a rivalry between him and Tupac, who was considered the king of the west coast.

Biggie was the master of wordplay and deft lyricism; many rappers, since his death, have been influenced by his style and delivery.

16 days after he was killed in 1997, his double-disk album ‘Life After Death’ went platinum.
