    The Notorious B.I.G.

    When: March 8, 1997 Where: The Shrine Auditorium, L.A.

    A little over two weeks before the scheduled release of his second album Life After Death, the Notorious B.I.G. performed at the 11th Annual SoulTrain Awards in Los Angeles. Sporting a tux and accompanied by a team of similarly clad female dancers (and a particularly dapper looking P. Diddy in an all white tuxedo), Biggie performed one of his biggest hits, "One More Chance." Later that night, Biggie would attend the Vibe Magazine after party. He was fatally wounded in a drive-by shooting leaving the party in the early hours of the next morning.
