The SUV The Notorious B.I.G. Was Killed in Is on Sale for $1.5 Mill

Notorious B.I.G., whose real name was Christopher Wallace, was 24 years old when he was killed in March of 1997It is speculated the East coast rapper was killed in retaliation for the unsolved murder of West Coast rapper Tupac Shakur, only six months earlier
One week after the BMW Tupac was shot in on the Vegas strip in 1996 was put on the market for $1.5 million, the SUV Biggie was murdered in in 1997 went up for sale for the same cost.
On Thursday, March 2, it was announced that the sale of the green GMC Suburban the Brooklyn rapper was riding shotgun in when a gunman pulled up alongside the vehicle and took his life in L.A. in 1997, has gone public.
Its current owner divulged to TMZ that it was in seeing the price Tupac's car was valued at that she decided to test the market as well.
The owner has requested that  Los Angeles police return the bullet-riddled car doors when the investigation is finally closed. It has remained unsolved for nearly 20 years
The owner originally came into possession of the vehicle seven months after B.I.G's murder on March 9 of that year. Intriguingly, she says that the family wasn't even aware of the Suburban's history until 2005, when a detective contacted them to request it as evidence in the rapper's wrongful death trial.
The notorious green Suburban that Notorious B.I.G. was shot dead in is on sale for $1.5million. A Los Angeles owner made the sale public on Thursday 
A brand new purchase of the same '97 model today would run a buyer a mere $2,000. But the historical value it now attains is unquestionable with hip hop's rise to rock and roll fame over the past two decades. The passenger seat belt still has a bullet hole in it, to boot. The BMW 750IL Pac was shot in also still had markings of the bullets sprayed into the car, with an indentation in the license plate as well as the door panel. In contrast to the history of the SUV though, Tupac's Beemer has changed hands several times since his shooting.
The car is complete with a bullet hole in the passenger seat belt where Biggie Smalls was sitting when he was murdered 
The Notorious One was gunned down after leaving an industry party in L.A. only six months after Tupac's dramatic death. The fact that his life was stopped on the West Coast, following a public rap beef that was sensationalized by the media as an East vs. West, rivalry has brought the incident to survive with a lasting allure, encapsulated by the time that it took place.
