90's Throwback Celebrity Spotlight: Notorious B.I.G. & Faith Evans

The film Notorious came out in theaters yesterday and it really shed some light on the marriage between 1990's Hip Hop Royal Couple Christoper "Notorious B.I.G" Wallace and Faith Evans. Although their marriage had a lot of ups and downs, they had a genuine love and attraction for one another.

The Notorious B.I.G was arguably one of the greatest rappers of all time and Faith is a platinum selling R&B singer/songwriter in her own right. Unfortunately Christopher was gunned down in Los Angeles, California March 9, 1997 at the age of 24. However, Christopher and Faith have a son from their union, Christopher Jr. who is now 12 years old.

Here is one of the pictures from the photo shoot used on the original VIBE Magazine cover from October 1995 featuring Christopher and Faith. The cover was labeled BIG WHEELS: Rollin' with the NOTORIOUS B.I.G. and Faith.

Below it is the 2009 Re-make of the cover for VIBE'S 15th Anniversary Fashion Issue featuring lead actors from the film Jamal Woolard and Antonique Smith.
