The man of many monikers, Christopher Wallace, The Notorious B.I.G., “Big Poppa,” Biggie, or whichever you prefer to call him, is one of the greatest rappers of all time. Twenty-five years after his death in 1997, Biggie is still an influential figure in rap. The hip-hop icon has a discography with hits such as “Juicy,” “Hypnotize,” and his iconic freestyle with the coined phrase “Where Brooklyn at?” with friend-turned-foe Tupac. Biggie was a vital artist to P. Diddy’s Bad Boy Records label which continuously put them on the map with his iconic flow, memorable lyrics, and trailblazing artistry. As Jay-Z would put it, “The only Christopher we acknowledge is Wallace.”
