#RIPBIG: Remembering the Notorious BIG 20 Years After Death

"And we're going to put out something special with all the fans and friends and family involved in celebrating Notorious B.I.G.'s life".

The USA Network is working on a drama about Smalls and Tupac Shakur called, "Unsolved: The Murders of Biggie and Tupac", according to the Hollywood Reporter and his fashion label, "Hypnotize", is hosting a pop-up shop in London, according to the NME.

20 years has gone past in a blink of an eye and while we're celebrating his life, it still royally sucks that the man born Christopher Wallace can not be here to reap the benefits of his dope (yet short) career. Wallace, one of history's most famous rap superstars, was killed by a still-unknown drive-by assailant in Los Angeles.

Biggie, also know as The Notorious B.I.G. whose real name was Christopher Wallace, is considered one of the most influential rappers of all time, despite dying at 24 in a drive-by shooting. Zoom ahead to 2014 and it's easy to assume that when Ariana Grande sampled "I'm Coming Out" for her "Break Your Heart Right Back", the young pop star was in fact paying homage to the Notorious B.I.G. track she nearly certainly heard as a little kid.

And so, the entire evening will be dedicated to all things B.I.G.

Urine tests revealed that the child's system was littered with methamphetamine, benzodiazepine, and amphetamine. Frenette said that a quick fix was the only way to calm down Farruggia long enough for her to call for help.

"After Big died, we were searching to see who was gonna carry the torch", Mase told GQ in 2014.

Faith Evans has sourced material from Wallace's vault to record a new duets album, titled "The King & I". "This project is my creative reflection of the love we had & the bond we will always have".

Diddy wrote that the artist - also known as Biggie Smalls or, after the title of one of his songs, Big Poppa - was "the greatest rapper of all time". "That's why I started my clothing line dedicated to him", T'yanna said in an interview last June.

This Sunday, when the Nets play the crosstown rival New York Knicks, they will be honoring Biggie in even grander fashion as they dedicate an entire night to his memory.
