Today’s throwback thursday is dedicated to the legendary Notorious B.I.G. This past Sunday marked the 11th year anniversary of Big’s tragic death. On March 9, 1997, he was killed by an unknown assailant in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles, CaliforniaChristopher George Latore Wallace (May 21, 1972March 9, 1997), also known as Biggie Smalls, Big Poppaand his primary stage name, The Notorious B.I.G. was born in Brooklyn, NY. In March 1992, Biggie was invited to produce a recording with other unsigned artists. The demo tape was heard by Sean “Puffy” Combs and he was signed to Uptown immediately. Soon after signing his recording contract, Combs was fired from Uptown and started a new label. Biggie followed and in mid-1992, signed to Combs’ new imprint label, Bad Boy Records.

Ready to Die was released on September 4th, 1994 and eventually became certified four times Platinum. In addition to “Juicy”, the record produced two hit singles; the Platinum-selling “Big Poppa“, which reached #1 on the U.S. rap chart, and “One More Chance” featuring Faith Evans, a loosely related remix of an album track and its best selling single.

So here’s my favorite video “One More Chance”. Everybody and they mama was in this video! Mary J. Blige, Faith, Aaliyah, Da Brat, Total, Heavy D., Craig Mack, Patra, Changing Faces, and many more! Oh yeah and of course Diddy had to be in the video…lol
