Just as they did with Pac a couple months back, XXL pays tribute to Biggie on the 15th Anniversary of his untimely passing.

The XXL team spoke to some of those closest to Big for an in-depth look into his life and death. From his kids T’Yanna and Christopher “CJ” Wallace and their mamas, Jan Jackson and Faith Evans, to his closest friends like members of Junior M.A.F.I.A. and others, many got their chance to share stories and more to pay homage to the beloved MC. Most even disclosed rare, never-before-published photos of Biggie from their personal collections, which are featured in this month’s issue. Since Big was one of the most swagger-jacked rappers of all time, there’s a list of the 100 best Biggie bites, a look a what The Notorious One might have looked like at 40-plus, and much more.

Issue hits newsstands on February 7th.

  • whatupsucka

    They need to stop talking about Biggie and Pac and focused more on Big L and Big Pun. And maybe a tribute to Guru that he's NEVER gotten?
