ThrowbackThursday: The Notorious B.I.G.

For Today’s Hip-Hop Edition of Throwback Thursday

We’ll take a look at one of Hip-Hop’s most influential figures

The Notorious B.I.G.

May 21, 1972 – March 9, 1997

Widely considered as one of the best artists hip-hop has ever seen, and notably the East Coasts most prominent artists.  Christopher Wallace, came to the forefront when mainstream Hip-hop was being dominated by the West Coast.

He was a master of deep and complex rhymes, paired with an effusive rhythmic style. He gave you his life, his struggles,  and his story  with such raw and effortless skill, that it’s not hard to believe why many, still to this day, call him the greatest rapper to ever touch the mic.

Ask any well known rapper who their top 5 favorite rappers are, and The Notorious B.I.G. is on that list.

Through his struggles, his vision, his life and his legacy, we remember the artist he was, and the imprint he left on the game, that will certainly last for generations to come.  This #LOUDDCertified artist will  definitely remain a Hip-hop legend.
