At the age of 12, BIG began rapping with school mates in and after school. At the age of 18, Wallace was arrested for dealing crack cocaine and served 9 months in jail before posting bail.
Upon his release, he began to take his rap career very seriously and in 1992 was noticed by The Source Magazine as “Unsigned Hype”. Shortly after this he was discovered by Sean “P.Diddy” Combs and under Combs’ label in 1994 Wallace released his first studio album “Ready to Die”. After creating a large buzz, releasing 3 studio albums and more importantly putting New York Hip Hop on the map, Wallace was shot in a gang related incident while visiting Los Angeles, that proved to be fatal.
