The name Biggie Smalls came from a 1975 movie called ‘Let’s Do It Again.’ In the movie, Biggie Smalls, played by Calvin Lockhart, was the leader of a gang. It was not long before Lockhart sued, and Biggie was forced to change his official name to Notorious B.I.G. However, Biggie is one of the few hip-hop artists to ever record with Michael Jackson. He collaborated with the King of Pop twice. The first came in 1995; joining Michael Jackson on the track ‘This Time Around’. Six years later Michael Jackson released his tenth studio album ‘Invincible’ which featured a verse from B.I.G.
