Over ten years since his death, Biggie Smalls, also known as The Notorious B.I.G., is considered one of the most influential rappers of all time, a credit continually given by numerous hip-hop artists.

Raised in Brooklyn during the crack-cocaine boom of the late 1970s and early 1980s, Smalls (born Christopher Wallace) worked as a drug dealer before ultimately deciding to become a rapper. With Sean Puffy Combs and Bad Boy Entertainment, Biggie rocketed to fame as one of hip hop's most popular artists. But with the success came controversy: the friendship-turned-feud between Biggie and Tupac fueled the rivalry between East Coast and West Coast hip hop, a gangsta-rap battle that many believe led to the murder of both rappers. While still unsolved, the murder of Biggie in 1997 sparked numerous investigations, litigation, and the dismantling of a Los Angeles Police Department task force in what is considered the largest scandal in LAPD history. Ten years later, Biggie is celebrated as the King of East Coast hip hop. In this biography author Holly Lang recounts the life, music, and legacy of Biggie and investigates the events surrounding his murder.

    this is the second book that I read about biggie. I read this to try and get more information about his life and what it was like, it was basically the same as "Unbelievable" besides it had more about the crime and the problems they had about finding his killer. this book also has more rhymes that he wrote than the other book. it has some freestyles that he wrote while he was in prison that the other book didn't have. This book was good as well because I got more information on the crime and wha this is the second book that I read about biggie.

    A book giving us a compact story of the life of Christopher Wallace.I felt i knew everything about this man based on my following of his music but the book brought some valuable points on the B.I.G man.I dont think his music needs any introduction in the 4 years he graced our airwaves he left a infinite history.Great read would be good for any musical archive

    I liked how it pottered B.I.G.'s life (Christopher Wallace) and showed his revelry with Tupac but I didn't like the beginning.
