It’s hard to believe it’s been 19 years since the Notorious B.I.G. was murdered. March 9, 2106 marked the anniversary of this unsolved tragedy. Tributes came from around the globe on social media. One particular tribute came from B.I.G.’s best friend Sean “Diddy” Combs. He took to Instagram to share never-before-seen videos. One clip showed Biggie doing a voice over to his iconic song “Hypnotize” which was originally performed by Pamela Long of the group Total. Another clip showed him clowning in the studio. Diddy posted that the was extra emotional and on the verge of crying the whole day.

On March 9, 1997, Biggie (Christopher Wallace) was killed after leaving a party in Los Angeles. After all these years, the murder has remained unsolved. There have been several theories as to what happened and who’s responsible. The most noted theory is that it was in retaliation for Tupac Shakur’s death six months prior.
