Some details of the life of Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, Suge Knight, and Sean ("Puffy") Combs, as Diddy was then known, that I'd forgotten, but otherwise largely uninformative about the title subject. Not known who killed Biggie or why, and the author had no novel evidence or hypothesis to present.

Besides the recap of what little is known, you get......

(a) obvious points such as "No one will ever know what more Biggie Smalls could have accomplished, had he survived" (p. 193)

(b) repetition -- e.g.,

i think that the book is on "A book recommended by a family member of your family

i decided to read this book cause it sounded in interesting about biggie but sad.

i liked that biggie was a notorious thug and rapped but i didn't like that he had passed away.

i found Biggie interesting because he died for drugs and sex so yeah.

i think

His quote from his music:Biggie biggie biggie cant you see sometimes the world just hypnotize me.

The Notorious B.I.G (5/21/1972-3/9/1997) is the main topic in this book. It tells how he had died. He was a rapper who was always famous after spitting rhymes and making popular albums. On 3/9/1997, Biggie Smalls was shot to death at the age of 24. The person who shot him must be a result of jealously. After 15 years of Biggie's death, his tracks continue to live on, with people spitting out rhymes like he did.
This is a good book also.
