Biography

Christopher Wallace was born on May 21, 1972, in Brooklyn, New York. His parents had Jamaican descent. The father left the family when Chris was just eighteen months and this fact made him never think anything good about the old man. He studied together with Busta Rhymes and Jay-Z. Christopher’s mother worked hard day and night to support her son and protect him from the mean streets, but this was not enough. As Chris made friends with the other guys outside he named himself B.I.G. and took up drug dealing. At that time, rapping was no more than just a hobby for the young man. As the friends kept telling him how good he was at freestyles, Chris gave it a try and made a demo. Spread widely throughout New York clubs, this record eventually caught the eye of Sean Combs (widely known as Puff Daddy), a celebrated producer. He gave Chris his stage name Notorious B.I.G. and decided to turn the young man’s talent into a big rapping act. Trying to support his little daughter, B.I.G. kept selling drugs, which went contrary to Combs’s rules. He made the young rapper quit it and commit himself solely to music.

In 1994, Notorious B.I.G. released his debut album, Ready To Die. Two weeks later, the record ran double platinum, exploding a bomb in the American hip-hop society. The new rap star from New York became the person who could finally bring the fame back to the East Coast hip-hop from the leading West Coast. His songs, soaked in his vicious memories of the wrongful past, appeared a sincere revelation of the criminal life that found a huge response all over the USA. Along with his unrivaled skill to rhyme the words rapidly, B.I.G. was excellent at combining gangster tales with romantic ballads. Unwillingly, he became the main figure in the war between the two rap schools of the States. Tupac Shakur, a leading performer from the other coast, released an outrageous song defiling the image of his new competitor from New York. Notorious B.I.G. restrained himself from the direct reply. However, the slaying of Tupac shortly afterwards raised the flux of speculations on Wallace’s involvement into this affair. Apart from this, the rapper had numerous troubles with the law. He was arrested several times for a number of offences, including battering, drugs and weapon possession and robbery.

During the preparation of his second album, Life After Death, Notorious B.I.G. suffered a car accident that chained him to a wheelchair for a while and then made him use a cane. In March 1997, two weeks before the release of Life After Death, Notorious B.I.G. was murdered in his car by a streak of gun shots from another vehicle. Although he was immediately delivered to a hospital, the doctors were unable to save his life ruined by the four bullets in his chest. This killing has remained unsolved until now and raised a lot of alleged connections with Tupac’s murder. Wallace’s tragic death made his second album even more anticipated. This resulted in the sensational distribution of eighteen million copies if this CD worldwide. Several months later, Puff Daddy released his debut long player with a lot of vocal parts performed by B.I.G. and the song I’ll Be Missing You commemorating him. Wallace left a rich legacy to the supporters of his art and hip-hop in general. Even after his death, Puff Daddy kept releasing his albums where one could hear B.I.G. singing with other celebrated performers. Probably, the last one, saw light in 2005. The CD, titled Duets: The Final Chapter, mostly featured the fragments and remakes of his old songs. The name of Notorious B.I.G. is likely to draw broad attention again as the biographical movie Notorious is ready to appear on the screens in 2009.

Duets: The Final Chapter review

Hip-hop's self-image would never be quite the same without the Notorious B.I.G.

In just a few short years, the Notorious B.I.G. went from a Brooklyn street hustler to the savior of East Coast hip-hop to a tragic victim of the culture of violence he depicted so realistically on his records. His all-too-brief odyssey almost immediately took on mythic proportions, especially since his murder followed the shooting of rival 2Pac Shakur by only six months. In death, the man also known as Biggie Smalls became a symbol of the senseless violence that plagued inner-city America in the waning years of the 20th century. Whether or not his death was really the result of a much-publicized feud between the East and West Coast hip-hop scenes, it did mark the point where both sides stepped back from a rivalry that had gone too far. Hip-hop's self-image would never be quite the same, and neither would public perception. Since his passing, the Notorious B.I.G. has lived on through his posthumous releases, Born Again and the highly anticipated album, Duets: The Final Chapter. The 22-track set features songs built around unreleased Biggie music.

Biggie Smalls First Album

Dozens of superstars have come together to perform with legendary rapper

Duets: The Final Chapter features rhymes recorded by the Notorious B.I.G. throughout his career, melded with newly recorded performances by some of contemporary music’s greatest vocalists and MCs. Dozens of superstars have come together to perform with and pay homage to the legendary rapper on this unprecedented, history-making release. In addition, Duets: The Final Chapter incorporates posthumous appearances by 2Pac, Bob Marley, and Big Pun. Hold Ya Head was the first music to be released from Duets: The Final Chapter. The dramatic and poignant track pairs the Notorious B.I.G. with a moving sample from Johnny Was by Bob Marley, another legendary artist who died before his time. Other highlights of the project include Get Your Grind On, which brings together for the first time the Notorious B.I.G., Fat Joe, and Big Pun; and Spit Your Game, which pairs Twista with Bone Thugs N Harmony’s Krayzie Bone, a long-awaited collaboration that hip-hop fans will go wild for. R. Kelly and Charlie Wilson join the Notorious B.I.G. on the soulful groove Mi Casa, and the group KoRn rocks with him on Wake Up Now. B.I.G.’s mom, Voletta Wallace, makes an appearance on the album’s closing track, Love Is Everlasting, with the recital of an original poem about her son Christopher Wallace.

The love for B.I.G was and is real

Biggie was a gifted storyteller with a sense of humor and an eye for detail, and his narratives about the often-violent life of the streets were rarely romanticized; instead, they were told with a gritty, objective realism that won him enormous respect and credibility. The general consensus in the rap community was that when his life was cut short, sadly, Biggie was just getting started. Duets: The Final Chapter marks the first release of new the Notorious B.I.G.’s material in six years. P. Diddy and Notorious B.I.G. are the album’s Executive Producers, while Voletta Wallace is Co-Executive Producer along with Faith Evans, Harve Pierre, and such luminaries as Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, Just Blaze, Scott Storch and Mario Winans. 'This composition of sound and different energies has surpassed my wildest imagination,' said Bad Boy Entertainment founder and CEO Sean 'Diddy' Combs. 'The love for B.I.G. was and is real. This movement has been both an emotional and therapeutic experience, one that finds us at the end of the road in terms of original releases for a great man and at the threshold of a sound and a quality which may have fallen by the wayside after losing him.'
