When was Biggie born? The Notorious B.I.G. was born on May 31
Arguably the greatest rapper of all time, Christopher Wallace was born in Brooklyn in 1972. His mother immigrated from Jamaica and raised him in a strict household. Biggie started out as a street dude before rap, sticking up people and selling drugs. He was signed to Bad Boy under Puff and his debut Ready to Die was one of the most important rap records ever made.
A beef with fellow rapper and former friend 2Pac led to a coastal rivalry. Both rappers ended up dead within a year of each other. The Notorious B.I.G.was shot in Los Angeles after a Vibe party at the Peterson Auto Museum on March 9, 1997. He was married to Faith Evens and they had a son named after him. He had other children as well. His second album Life After Death came out less than a year after his death.
