Sean "Diddy" Combs yesterday took to his page on Instagram to pay tribute to his late friend and fellow rapper, The Notorious B.I.G., twenty-two years after his mysterious murder, which many believed it was an act of revenge for the killing of bitter rival in the rapper biz, Tupac Shakur, who was gunned down in Las Vegas six months prior.
The East Coast rapper, who also went by Biggie Smalls and whose real name is Christopher Wallace, was killed on 9th March 1997 as he was riding in a vehicle leaving a music industry party at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, aged 24.
Paying tribute on IG, Diddy wrote: "There will NEVER be another. The GREATEST RAPPER OF ALL TIME. Today we celebrate and honor you king. Love and miss you!!!!!!!!! Happy Biggie.”
Many stories has been told about the real cause of Biggie’s death, but the most prominent believe is that his death was an act of revenge for the killing of rival rapper Tupac Shakur, who was gunned down in Las Vegas six months prior.
