The hubcap and sticker were seen in crime scene photographs from the rapper’s murder.

Biggie’s murder remains unsolved. The artist was recently the focus of a Netflix documentary, entitled Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell.

The documentary, which featured candid footage of Biggie and interviews with some of his closest friends, received mixed reviews from critics.
