Today would've marked the 43rd birthday of Christopher Wallace, also known as the Notorious B.I.G., and considered by many as one the best to ever touch a mic.

Debuting in 1992, the Brooklyn native became one of the biggest superstars in hip-hop during his era. Honoring his talents on the mic and legacy, several lifestyle brands have created very dope memorabilia paying tribute to Biggie Smalls. From Pop Rock toys to ear buds, brands have acknowledged Biggie's greatness in one-of-a-kind ways.

Biggie's legacy and music continues to be relevant in today's rap game. As we celebrate his birthday today, we pay homage to the Frank White of rap by showcasing 10 of the most rare Notorious B.I.G. items.
