This Thursday, March 9, marks the 20th anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.‘s tragic death. Killed in a drive-by shooting on March 9, 1997, Biggie has a legacy that continues to thrive in today’s hip-hop culture, with many artists paying tribute to the late, great Frank White through musical compositions or even on their personal social media pages. XXL recently caught up with Ghostface Killah to get his thoughts on The Notorious B.I.G.’s legacy and impact in hip-hop.
As noted in the past, the relationship between B.I.G. and members of the Wu-Tang Clan was a bit rocky in the 1990s, with rap fans claiming the Brooklyn rapper and Staten Island crew took subliminal shots at one another on records.
