Unfortunately, he was unable to enjoy this new success for long. In 1997, he was shot and killed during a drive-by shooting. After his death, his second album became diamond certified. 

Raised in Brooklyn, New York, the Notorious BIG was a huge figure in East Coast hip hop. Through his work, East Coast hip hop gradually began to become main stream and eventually challenged West Coast hip hop. His last album, Life After Death, was ominously named and ended up being released just 16 days after his death. Before long, it hit number one on album charts in the United States. After his death, another two albums were released. Altogether, these albums sold 17 million units in just the United States. Before his death, the Notorious BIG had started a clothing line known as Brooklyn Mint. With his death, the clothing line ended. In memory of his life, the Notorious BIG’s former managers sold clothes with his image and donated the earnings to the Christopher Wallace Foundation. This foundation holds an annual formal dinner that raises money for school supplies.
