In another Instagram video, the Grammy victor spoke off the cuff and got emotional about all the time that's passed since the Notorious B.I.G. died.

Rapper "The Notorious B-I-G" was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. On March 1st, 1997, Biggie and his cousin (and fellow Junior M.A.F.I.A. member) Lil Cease dropped by The Wake Up Show w/ Sway & Tech in spit a few off-the-cuff bars.

The "Hypnotize" rapper, nicknamed Biggie Smalls, was murdered just six months after rapper Tupac Shakur lost his life in a fatal drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. The shop itself will be an homage to the late artist, whose real name was Christopher Wallace, and shoppers can expect a veritable '90s time capsule.

In a video posted to his Twitter page, the "I'll Be Missing You" hitmaker said: "Check this out, this is what I want you to do".

"On this day we're gonna reflect on him, because we miss him", he continued. "It's just a matter of the LAPD saying that they know what happened, which they probably will never do". "I gave them to Puff, because he was the one with the hot hand".

Woods last week announced Exxon's plans to spend $5.5 billion on drilling in the Permian and Bakken regions. The project is expected to generate $20 billion in economic activity in Texas and Louisiana.

Plenty of theories about the murder have been proposed, including that Biggie was killed by mistake, and that the real target was Diddy, aka Sean Combs, who was traveling in the auto behind Biggie's when the shooting took place.

Evans, 43, explained how the rapper's death continues to affect the family, including her now adult son with B.I.G., 20-year-old Christopher Jordan Wallace.

Also commemorating Biggie today is his ex-wife Faith Evans, who says in a new interview that she will not have closure as long as his killer is still on the loose.

In efforts to celebrate and honor the late rapper, his dear friend Diddy kicked off a social media campaign inviting fans to post their favorite Biggie versus using the hashtag, #WeMissYouBIG.

"For me, he was one of the greatest ever", said DJ Absurd, aka Darren Shabat of New Brunswick.
