Tupac & Biggie
Two of the greatest rappers of all-time are forever linked together through life and death. Tupac Shakur and Biggie were once friends turned rivals — Tupac was the king of West Coast rap, while the Notorious B.I.G. was the East Coast’s top dog. The intense rivalry between the two was furthered by their labels, Tupac’s Death Row Records and Biggie’s Bad Boy Records. While in New York on November 30, 1994, Tupac was shot in the lobby of Quad Studios. Both Biggie and Sean Combs (P. Diddy) were at the studio at the time, and Tupac accused the two of being involved. Two years later, Tupac was shot four times in Las Vegas in a drive-by shooting — six days later, on September 13, 1996, Tupac died.
Just six months after Tupac’s death, Biggie suffered the same fate. The East Coast rapper was in Los Angeles when an SUV pulled up alongside his car and fired multiple shots — four of which hit Biggie. The icon died on March 9, 1997. While neither shooter has ever been found, many people speculated both hits were carried out as a result of first the rapper’s feud, and then as retaliation for Tupac’s death.
