RIP Biggie

Fifteen years ago today notoriously known, loved, revered and hated, Notorious B.I.G. was gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. It's incredible when you think of how many well-known artists Biggie has influenced and continues to do so for artists on the rise. The New York hip hop scene has him to thank both for his contribution in life and the after-effects of his death.

For those who still continue to question who was behind Biggie's death (most accusations point at two causes, Death Row namely Suge Knight, or the US Government, because they were so concerned with the effect that hip hop music had on the population. Sigh.), Complex Magazine interviewed a retired LAPD detective Greg Kading who had some professional theories of his own. For everyone else, just enjoy the music.
Get ready to die, tell God I say hi...
