It's been sixteen years since we lost the great one -- Notorious B.I.G.

You know how the story goes -- On March 9, 1997, the late Brooklyn rhyme-spitter was shot and killed in Los Angeles by an unknown gunman. The murder still remains unsolved despite various people popping up with their own conspiracy theories of who committed the dastardly act.

In conclusion, Los Angeles police detective Greg Kading -- who was assigned to investigate B.I.G.’s murder case between 2006 and 2009 -- told Complex magazine that the Biggie murder case may never get solved.

Although Biggie is gone, his musical legacy continues to be remembered by fellow hip-hoppers and fans alike. They are a slew of B.I.G. tributes on the Internet, here are just a few that may interest you:

DJ Rhude Presents “The Notorious 9"

DJ Rude always wondered what if Biggie would sound like it he rapped on today's producers' hot beats. That experiment comes to fruition on his Notorious 9 EP. The collection features the late Frank White spitting bars over popular beats by hit-makers No I.D., Large Professor, Harry Fraud, the Alchemist, Jahlil Beats and a few others.
