To anyone who works is marketing or is thinking making a career for themselves in the field: this is an absolutely brilliant piece execution.
The team behind the promotion for the upcoming docuseries, Unsolved: The Murders Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G., have erected a billboard featuring an image the late Wallace that now ominously overlooks the location where the rapper was gunned down in cold blood.

The billboard image features text that reads, “20 Years. Still unsolved.” Displayed boldly across the center the advertisement, the overall impact the visual is quite stunning, giving Biggie’s murder scene this unique kind homage. There’s also something quite eerie about it, adding this “beyond the grave” quality to the promo for the series, which premieres on February 27th. Check out a picture the billboard, courtesy TMZ, below.
B.I.G. was shot on March 9, 1997 as he was leaving the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, which is located at the corner South Fairfax & Wilshire. He later died his injuries after he was admitted to hospital. Generally considered among the greatest emcees that rap has ever produced, particularly as part its “golden era,” Wallace passed away at the tender age 24 and left behind two studio albums: Ready To Die and Life After Death, both which are considered hip-hop classics.
