The notorious green SUV that Notorious B.I.G. was shot dead in is on sale for $1.5million, complete with a bullet hole in the seat belt where the legendary rapper was sitting.
The 1997 Suburban that Biggie Smalls was riding in when he was murdered nearly 20 years ago is up for grabs, according to a California record submitted on Thursday.
Once bullet-riddled, the Los Angeles family who put 114,000 miles on the car’s clock is looking to make a sale of $1.5million, a price that rivals the price of Tupac Shakur’s BMW.
The GMC vehicle comes complete with a bullet hole in the passenger seat belt, the same spot the famous rapper was sitting in when he was shot.

According to the current owner, the family had purchased the car in October of 1997, a few months after Biggie was killed in March, TMZ reported.
They only realized the car’s history when a detective called in 2005 and said they would need the car for the wrongful death trial.
After seeing that Tupac Shakur’s BMW, complete with bullet holes in the black car doors, was on sale for $1.5million she decided to sell the car, for the same price.
The owner added that she requested that the Los Angeles Police Department would return the car doors, which still have bullet holes, when the investigation was closed.
Moments In Time, the same seller of Biggie’s Suburban, listed Tupac’s car on sale on the website in late February.
Tupac was riding in the front passenger seat of the car when he was shot four times in September of 1996. He died six days later on September 13.

The luxury car has had a number of owners and racked up 92,000 miles. A normal model of the vehicle would be only worth around $2,500 today.
The deaths of the two icons of the hip-hop world rocked the rap community.
It is speculated East Coast rapper Biggie was killed in retaliation for the unsolved murder of West Coast rapper Tupac, only six months earlier.
Biggie’s murder has often been put down to a ‘war’ between the two rival groups.
Today, a 1997 GMC Suburban with the same mileage wouldn’t be worth more than $2,000.
