On this day in 1997, Christopher Wallace, a.k.a Biggie Smalls, a.k.a. the Notorious B.I.G., is shot to death at a stoplight in Los Angeles. The murder was thought to be the culmination of an ongoing feud between rap music artists from the East and West coasts. Ironically, Wallace’s death came only weeks before his new album, titled Life After Death, was scheduled to be released.

The Bible verse below was a tattoo on his right forearm.

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; he protects me from danger—whom shall I fear?”
