#MUSICALMARCH Biggie Smalls

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!

  1. I know, right? I wonder if they would still be alive if they rapped together. Some say they aren’t really dead, that they’re hiding out. I wish that would be the case! Ha ha Lisa’s gangster stories coming soon! 😂🖒 LOL

  2. Wow, that’s some heavy stuff, Lisa! What an example how things turn bad if money and power takes over! Very tragic. And what you told here about gangs sounds like an action movie. Now I am curious about your post!!

  3. They shot and killed him too. I think it happened in Las Vegas. Biggie and Tupac were friends at first. They became enemies when their careers took off. Supposedly Tupac slept with Biggie’s wife. The rappers had also some sort of rivalry because Tupac was in California and Biggie in New York. So it was like east coast vs. west coast. I think a lot of it was also related to gang violence. There’s several gangs still but not like before. At that time it was two gangs people talked a lot about, especially in rap…crips vs. bloods. Crips wore blue and bloods wore red. Gangs were sort of a big deal when I was growing up. I had friends who were in them. I did some things I’m not proud of when I was young and hung out with them. I wasn’t into killing or terrible things like that to hurt people though. You just gave me an idea for a post. Lol. Thanks Erika!

  4. Of course, I love the title 😁 The music, to be honest, is not my kind of music. So I am not into it at all. But that makes it even more interesting to get introduced it from time to time 😊

  5. Good picks, Tracy. He just left us too soon. There’s very few rappers if any who come close to his talent these days. Nah let me back up, I don’t think there’s any these days.

  6. So many great ones to choose from, considering there were only two albums released under his own name. I like the hits, of course, but some of the other songs really appealed to me too. “Everyday Struggle,” “Warning,” are two. Thanks for sharing!
