The Notorious B.I.G. net worth: The Notorious B.I.G. was an American rapper who had an estimated net worth of $160 million dollars. The Notorious B.I.G. was born Christopher George Latore Wallace in New York City in 1972. He was raised in Brooklyn. The Notorious B.I.G. released "Ready to Die", his debut album, in 1994 and instantly became a force in the East Coast hip hop scene as well as raising its profile at a time when West Coast hip hop was dominating the mainstream music scene. The growing feud between the East Coast and West Coast hip hop scenes was something The Notorious B.I.G. was very involved in and on March 9, 1997 he was killed in a drive by shooting outside of a Los Angeles museum. "Life After Death", his double – disc set was released 16 days after his death. The album rose to number one on the U.S. album charts and became one of the few hip hop albums to be certified Diamond in 2000. The Notorious B.I.G. was known for the loose, easy flow of his rapping, his dark lyrics seemingly drawn from his own life, and his ability to tell stories in his rap songs. Since the death of The Notorious B.I.G., two more albums have been released.
