The 1997 Suburban that Biggie Smalls was riding in when he was murdered nearly 20 years ago comes complete with a bullet hole in the passenger seat belt, the same spot the famous rapper was sitting in when he was shot.
Notorious B.I.G., whose real name is Christopher Wallace, was 24 years old when he was killed in March of 1997. It is speculated the East Coast rapper was killed in retaliation for the unsolved murder of West Coast rapper Tupac Shakur, only six months earlier
According to the current car owner, the family had purchased the car in October of 1997, a few months after Biggie was killed in March, TMZ reported.
They only realized the car’s history when a detective called in 2005 and said they would need the car for the wrongful death trial.
After seeing that Tupac Shakur’s BMW, complete with bullet holes in the black car doors, was on sale for $1.5million she decided to sell the car, for the same price after putting 114,000 miles on the car’s clock.
Today, a 1997 GMC Suburban with the same mileage wouldn’t be worth more than $2,000. A normal model of Tupac’s vehicle would be only worth around $2,500 today.
The deaths of the two icons of the hip-hop world, Tupac & Biggie rocked the rap community.
