Feliz Cumpleanos!!
Times flies when it comes to children. Look who has graduated to ‘young lady’ status.
Yes, that’s the daughter {Photo, left} of late rapper, Notorious B.I.G. (aka Biggie Smalls, whose legal name was Christopher Wallace), T’Yanna’s Wallace.
She just celebrated her 16th birthday.
Remember she was a toddler when her father was murdered.
On March 9, 1997, rapper Biggie Smalls (a former New Jersey crack dealer) was gunned down while he was leaving a Vibe magazine party after the Soul Train Music Awards.
As hundreds left the party, Biggie’s entourage rolled out of the parking garage of the Petersen Automotive Museum in the Wilshire district with Rap mogul, Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs riding ahead of Biggie’s vehicle.
The famed gangsta rapper car was stopped at a traffic light when a dark Chevy Impala pulled up alongside Biggie’s vehicle and fired seven shots from a blue steel 9mm semi-automatic into the SUV’s front passenger door.
Four of the bullets hit Biggie. He was pronounced dead less than an hour later, shortly after arriving at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He was 24-years-old at the time of his death.
The shooter, described as a black male in a suit and bow tie has never been found.
