The Notorious B.I.G., a.k.a. Christopher Wallace, known by fans and friends as just Biggie, was gunned down in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997. And in the 20 years since that day neither his family, friends nor fans have wavered for even a moment in their unrelenting love for the iconic rapper.

Earlier this month, Biggie's widow, R&B singer Faith Evans, released a 25-track collaborative album with her late love titled The King & I. The album features Biggie's mother as well as some notable friends of the late rapper, including Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Lil' Kim, Jadakiss, 112, and others.     

Billboard recently caught up with Sean "Diddy" Combs, ironically on the same day that would have been Biggie's 45th birthday, to discuss the upcoming Bad Boy documentary Can't Stop, Won't Stop.
