In paying tribute to the 15th anniversary of Notorious B.I.G.’s tragic passing, XXL Magazine has chosen to lace the cover of its forthcoming issue with the late, great Christopher Wallace. The edition is slated to hit newsstands on February 7. Read a short description of the piece below:
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 Wallace 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 the most swagger-jacked rapper 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 much more in the magazine.
