After a childhood of crime caught up with him, Wallace decided to focus on his other talent: Rapping, under the name Biggie Smalls. This lead to a chain of events that resulted in him teaming up with Uptown Records A&R and record producer Sean "Puffy" Combs. However, soon after signing the contract, Combs found himself fired from Uptown and started up a new label, Bad Boy Records, which Wallace quickly became a part of. Later that year, Wallace gained exposure on a remix to Mary J. Blige's "Real Love". Wallace found out that his original pseudonym Biggie Smalls was already in use, so he adapted a new moniker: The Notorious B.I.G.(the letters apparently don't stand for anything).

* ListSong: "The Ten Crack Commandments". It originally included a sample of Chuck D counting to ten from the Music/PublicEnemy song "Shut 'Em Down", but Chuck, who is both StraightEdge and heavily critical of drug dealing, was so incensed at being sampled in a song about drug dealing that he sued to have it removed.

** Biggie and former labelmate Music/CraigMack had issues with each other from the get-go when they signed to Bad Boy, with Biggie going as far as to make many negative remarks about him during interviews. This led to both artists throwing subliminal disses at each other on Mack's "Flava In Ya Ear" remix:
----> '''Biggie:'''\\
I see the gimmicks, the wack lyrics,\\
the shit is depressing, pathetic, please forget it.\\
You're mad cause my style you're admiring,\\
Don't be mad, UPS is hiring.
----> '''Craig Mack:'''\\
Word up, no rap no crap you bore me,\\
Wanna grab my dick, too lazy, hold it for me.\\
...A Tec-9 when I rhyme,\\
Plus I climb, word is bond\\
[[Music/ReadyToDie Your album]] couldn't fuck with one line.
