(AllHipHop News) Now, the news is breaking that the wheels the Notorious B.I.G. lost his life in after the Soul Train Awards in Los Angeles in 1997, is also up for auction.
The infamous dark green Chevy Suburban, which was also riddled with bullets by unknown gunmen, is up for sale for $1.5 million.
The Suburban is being sold via the Moments in Time auction website, which is the same company that is selling off the black BMW.
“My husband and I bought the car in October ‘97, when we were looking for a larger vehicle for our family of 6. We bought the car from a broker in Chula Vista, CA, who bought it from an auction in L.A.,” the seller explained. “We owned the car for years, using it as our family vehicle, not knowing about its history. Into 2005, L.A. detective called and informed us about the car’s involvement in the shooting of Biggie Smalls and that will be needed for the trial. We have kept the car now for 20 years and decided it was finally time to sell it.”
The intertwining fate of both artists will be explored in the upcoming Tupac biopic “All Eyez on Me,” which hits theaters on June 16.
