Fifteen years ago, on March 9, 1997, Christopher Wallace -- a.k.a. the Notorious B.I.G. -- was shot and killed in Los Angeles. Biggie was in California to promote his upcoming album, "Life After Death," and to help put an end to the West Coast-East Coast rap war, when he was gunned down after leaving an after party for the Soul Train Music Awards.
More than a decade later, Biggie lives on through his music. Over the years, plenty B.I.G. tracks have made their way into movies, in particular, the 2009 biopic, "Notorious."
On the 15th anniversary of his death, Moviefone presents a brief history of Biggie's music in movies.
