The autopsy report for the late Notorious B.I.G. has been disclosed for the first time.
The hip-hop star, whose real name was Christopher Wallace, died in 1997 after being shot four times in a drive-by shooting on Wilshire Blvd. while he was sitting in the passenger seat of a Chevy Suburban.
The report, obtained by TMZ, reveals graphic details from the night of his murder.
According to the report, Wallace sustained four gunshot wounds to the chest, shoulder, leg, forearm and scrotum. Three of the four shots were not fatal. Also, there were no traces of drugs or alcohol in his system.
The first gunshot hit his left forearm and traveled down to his wrist. Gunshot No. 2 hit him in the back, missing all vital organs, and exited through his left shoulder. Gunshot No. 3 hit his outer left thigh and left through his inner thigh. The report says that the third bullet "strikes the left side of the scrotum, causing a very shallow, 3/8 inch linear laceration."
The final bullet was the one that reportedly killed the Brooklyn rapper. It entered through his right hip and hit several vital organs. The bullet struck his colon, liver, heart and upper lobe of his left lung.
Wallace was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital where doctors performed emergency surgery, but were unable to save the slain rapper.
He was only 24, leaving behind a daughter, T'Yonna Wallace, and a son, Christopher Wallace, Jr.
Wallace's shooter has never been found.
