Christopher Wallace Autopsy

Notorious B.I.G sustained four gunshot wounds the night he was murdered in L.A. back in 1997, according to a just-released autopsy report. -Wallace, who was listed at 6'1" and 395 lbs., was struck a total of four times in a drive-by shooting by a still-unknown assailant on Los Angeles' Wilshire Blvd. He was only 24. As he sat in the passenger seat of a Chevy Suburban, Biggie was ambushed by bullets from the car alongside him. The first three, it turns out, were not fatal: 1.Struck Wallace in the left forearm and traveled down to his wrist. 2.Struck Wallace in the back, missed all vital organs, and exited through his left shoulder. 3.Struck Wallace on his outer left thigh and exited through his inner left thigh. After the third bullet exited the thigh, the autopsy report states that "the projectile strikes the left side of the scrotum, causing a very shallow, 3/8 inch linear laceration." The fatal bullet the fourth and final gunshot. That entered Wallace's body through his right hip and tore its way through several of his vital organs before finally coming to rest in his left shoulder area. The bullet perforated Wallace's colon, liver, heart and left lung. Immediately after the shooting, the Notorious B.I.G. was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital, where doctors performed an emergency thoracotomy to no avail. Wallace was pronounced dead shortly thereafter. All four gunshots traveled through the Suburban passenger door before striking Wallace; two were found on the gurney that transported him to the hospital. Another bullet was discovered at the hospital when the body of the deceased rapper was turned over after doctors had tried and failed to save him. The coroner listed Wallace as "morbidly obese." A toxicology test revealed Wallace had no traces of drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of his death; Wallace's body was later ID'd by his mother and wife. The autopsy report also lists one interesting, handwritten note under the section "Other Pertinent Information", reading: "Decedent may be rap singer." - See more at: http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/2012/12/notorious-big-autopsy-report-released-in-graphic-detail/?utm_source=crowdignite.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=crowdignite.com#sthash.QFVzzwet.dpuf


I've had many dreams, but music is by far the best one. see when I was younger my step day always told me quit dreaming, the clouds aint a place for ones mind. and I had always listened to him, I don't know why I listen to a drug addict I guess it just made sense to me that me dreaming wouldn't make anything. I started to focus on how to escape him. see my mother did the best she could but she worked 2 jobs and was hardly home just to provide for 4 kids 1 which was me. alone with a abusive man can break many people. As far as me I didn't let him break me just bruise me. February 21st 2002 my mom had moved us to a town out side of Nashville TN far from my step dad abusive acts there I realized that dreaming wasn't so bad and it took time to construct something worth chasing, and that's where music came into, yet I let go of my escape plan I still wonder what if. all these dreams made this one real. the life I have lived was rough but I can say it made music worth it, I can speak to others about problems many face, changing a life is my mission changing many will be a dream worth living.
