Today marks 18 years since the death of rapper the Notorious B.I.G.



On March 9, 1997, the Bed-Stuy native was shot and killed in Los Angeles, California.



Biggie, whose real name is Christopher Wallace, was shot four times when a car pulled up next to his and opened fire. He died just six months after rival rapper Tupac Shakur was gunned down in Las Vegas.



According to the New York Post, the restaurant All'onda in Union Square, is rolling out a special six-course meal tonight inspired by the late rapper. It features meals connected to specific lyrics mentioned in his songs.
