The Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie Smalls, born on May 21, 1972 as Christopher George Latore Wallace, is undoubtedly famed as one of the greatest hip hop artists of all time. Regardless of which coast or even country you come from, respect is given where respect is due.
After his unfortunate early passing on March 9, 1997, the double-disc set Life After Death was released 16 days later, rising to No. 1 on the U.S. album charts. Eventually becoming certified Diamond in sales (over 10 Million sold), Biggie's first post mortem project and second release ever became one of the few hip hop albums to receive this achievement. Ten years later, as we began in 2007, “it was all a dream” for the Bobby Fresh team.
