The Notorious B.I.G. (May 21, 1972-March 9, 1997).

When B.I.G. released his debut album Ready to Die in 1994, he became a key figure in the East Coast hip-hop scene at a time when the movement was seeded.

His double-disc set Life After Death, released 15 days after he died, hit #1 on the U.S. album charts and was certified Diamond (10 million copies sold) in 2000.

He has influenced artists such as Diddy, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Alicia Keys, Fat Joe, Nelly, Ja Rule, Eminem, Lil Wayne, Game, Clinton Sparks, Usher and many others.
