Mini-Episode 001: The Notorious B.I.G.

​ 

March 9th, 2017 was the 20th anniversary of the death of Chris Wallace, better know as The Notorious B.I.G., gunned down in a still-unsolved murder in Los Angeles, California. He influenced many current hip-hop artists as well as his contemporaries, and we feature some of his lesser-known tracks and interesting music connected to his legacy.


We discuss the similar tragedy of BIG L, and discover a release by 90's rockers LIVING COLOUR covered his song "Who Shot Ya" on a single of the same name in September 2016, which coincided with the 20th anniversary of the death of rival rapper and equally celebrated Tupac Shakur.

Featured are collaborations with WU-TANG CLAN, CRAIG MACK, LL COOL J, BUSTA RHYMES, and a remix featuring samples from BOB MARLEY from the 2005 Compilation "Duets: The Final Chapter"
