Following a recent surge in popularity, Biggie might even have his death solved

It probably has a lot to do with the movie Notorious released in 2009, but I’ve been hearing Biggie everywhere over the last year or so. Hip Hop in general seems to be making a comeback, with Kanye topping every “Top 10 of 2010” style things, but Biggie seems to have really made a comeback a decade after his death ( although his whole career seems to have happened after his death anyway, so it may not be so out-there). He’s definitely beating his rival Tupac at the moment, despite Pac’s miraculous stream of posthumous releases.

So just in time to keep the sales (or at least downloads) soaring, it looks like police have made a breakthrough in his death investigation.

Investigation into death of Notorious B.I.G. heats up – CNN.

According to one law enforcement source, the investigation into the 13-year-old unsolved case was “reinvigorated” months ago as a result of new information, but the source would not elaborate further because of the ongoing investigation that includes the Los Angeles Police Department, L.A. County District Attorney’s Office and the FBI.

It will be interesting to see what comes out of this, although solving Biggie’s murder will take him out of the exclusive club of musicians who died mysteriously. He’ll no longer be chilling with Pac, Jeff Buckley, Buddy Holly, Elvis, Michael Jackson et al. Although he will get to hang with John Lennon, as a musician who was assassinated, which I guess is a silver lining.

Meanwhile, this remix is amazing:
