Hi everyone! I know I’m a couple of days late with this one but better late than never 😉 March 9 marked the 20th anniversary of Christopher Wallace’s aka Biggie Smalls’ death. Christopher Wallace was shot and killed after the 1997 Soul Train Music Awards on March 9, 1997 in Los Angeles. He was shot four times in a drive-by shooting. Twenty years later, the person who shot Biggie has yet to be found. Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace told the Daily Mail “I have a very good idea who murdered Christopher and I genuinely believe that the LAPD knows exactly who did too.” She adds, “They’ve done their investigation, but they just refuse to move forward. I don’t know why they haven’t arrested who was involved. It seems to me that it’s one giant conspiracy, and someone is definitely being protected somewhere down the line.” For Biggie’s mother, “There’s no closure for me until that murderer is behind bars and sentenced.” Biggie Smalls was only 24 when he was killed.
As a teenager, I grew up listening to Biggie a lot. I had his CDs and heard his music on the radio a lot. Although I still like several of his songs, today’s song is one of my favorites. Guess what else is in the works? According to TMZ, USA Network is working on a TV show about Biggie and Tupac titled “Unsolved.” The TV show is about investigating their deaths. Do you have any favorite Biggie songs? Feel free to leave them in the comments section. This post is part of Ritu’s #MUSICALMARCH challenge. If you can, check out her posts. Have a great rest of the day, everyone! I’ll see you soon!
