Yesterday marked 18 years since Christopher Wallace popularly known as The Notorious B.I.G. was shot on a street in Los Angeles.
His best friend and fellow Bad Boy Sean “Diddy” Combs posted a number of throwback photos on Instagram commemorating the legend, as well as hosting an event last night in memory of his fallen friend.
Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar spit some bars to remember the rapper, and Biggie’s ex-wife and R&B singer Faith Evans, his daughter T’yanna Wallace, Lil Cease, Jadakiss and Sheek Louch gathered onstage in his hometown to run through a few hits featuring B.I.G., like Lil Kim’s “Crush On You,” and The Lox‘s tribute cut “Letter to B.I.G.”
