55 Bigger Than Life Quotes From Biggie Smalls

Biggie Smalls who is more famous for his celebrity name Notorious B.I.G. only lived to 24-years-old. Despite that, his name lived up to its name; Biggie, after all, had rap songs and records that made it big not just in the mainstream rap scene in the United States but also across the world. More than 24 years after his tragic death in 1997,  over 14 million people across the world continue to stream Biggie and his songs on platforms such as Spotify. Many of his songs that continue to make the hits include Hypnotize, Big Poppa, Juicy, Mo Money Mo Problems, and Old Thing Back. 

Biggie was at the center of the east coast rap and hip-hop scene as he lived and thrived in the Big Apple. At the same time, west coast rap and hip-hop was also making the charts. To put it simply, the east coast-west coast feud brewed and Biggie was one of the stalwarts from the east coast. More documented and publicized was his growing discord with Tupac Shakur who was the top man in the west coast. Following the death of Tupac Shakur in 1997 was the death of Biggie himself who was killed in a drive-by shooting when he visited Los Angeles in 1997. Two weeks after Biggie’s death, one of his two last albums named Life After Death was released. It was so popular at that time that it topped the Billboard ratings and eventually claimed Diamond record status.
