Another gangsta rapper gunned down.
This time 24 year old Notorious B-I-G, aka Biggie Smalls killed in an apparent drive-by shooting outside a Los Angeles party early this morning.
LT. ALBA, LAPD/ AT THIS POINT, WE DO HAVE SOME SUSPECT DESCRIPTIONS, ALTHOUGH THEY ARE RATHER SKETCHY, WE HAVE NUMEROUS WITNESSES THAT ARE BEING INTERVIEWED BY WILSHIRE DETECTIVES.
He was born Christopher Wallace and became notorious and wealthy parlaying his lengthy rap sheet - with drug, weapons`and assault charges - into a popular gangsta persona and platinum plated artist for New York based Bad Boy Entertainment.
His death is rocking diehard rap fans.
Coming six months and a day after the drive-by murder of California rapper Tupac Shakur has raised questions whether a bitter east coast, west coast rap rivalry has turned deadly.
Both coasts insist not.
PUFFY COMBS, BAD BOY ENTERTAINMENT: WE'VE ALWAYS COMMUNICATED WITH EACH OTHER. WE'VE NEVER HAD PROBLEMS, WE JUST SPEAKING ABOUT IT NOT, BECAUSE ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
Notorious B-I-G flirted with death in his music and his life.
Notorious B-I-G: F I WAS DEAD I WOULDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT NOTHING. I COULD JUST LAY UP EITHER BE HEAVEN OR HELL, I'LL JUST BE LAYING THE (BLEEP) UP, JUST CHILLIN'.
I WOULDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT NO PROBLEMS.
His next album due out later this month is entitled "Life After Death."

(( Last week's note on Dan Rather's interview with the Mayor of New York on the Empire State Building shooting brought this response from another viewer.
"The mayor's point was that this unstable man, who had only been in this country a few days, should not have been able to obtain a handgun in Florida without a background check. Such a check would probably have prevented these murders. The viewer apparently believes that anyone, regardless of mental or moral deficiencies, should be able to buy and use a weapon on the basis of the Second Amendment. It should be obvious that there are some people whose right to "keep and bear arms" is subservient to the rights of citizens to be able to be free of the danger of unstable people with weapons. We can't allow any homicidal maniac who wants a gun to be able to buy one."
From our web page forum, a debate on geography.
"Why do the weather people always insist on referring to our part of the country as the Mid-Atlantic? The last time I looked at a history book, or listened to the people's dialect here, we were in the South! No, I think the weather people do a wonderful job keeping us informed...But you are doing all of our forefathers a terrible injustice when you call this the Mid-Atlantic."
Which brought this reply:
"I don't think Virginia was ever part of the stereotypical South: grinding poverty, hot climate, the Ku Klux Klan, and funny accents that grate unpleasant upon the ear, and sugary sweet women fanning themselves whilst rolling their eyes seductively. I like to think of myself as living in the best place on earth, where there are four seasons I am not hemmed in by tall, fierce mountains, where there are flat valleys and plenty of interstates waiting to take me anywhere I want to go...NO, I think to live in one of the mid-Atlantic states is to have the best of both the North and the South, without being smothered by either."
