The Notorious B.I.G. may be gone, but his words will never be forgotten. To honor the legacy that Biggie left behind, his widow, R&B singer Faith Evans, has released a 25-track tribute to the late rapper titled The King & I.

In 1997, Biggie was killed in a still unsolved drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. But two decades after his death, Evans said she's still inspired by the love fans have for the late rapper. It's the inspiration from Biggie's fans that help Evans create an entire album mixing new lyrics with his rhymes. The result, as difficult as Evans says it was at times, is powerful collection of collaborations.
