He was not 7" taller than Tupac lol. Tupac was 5'8 to 5'9, Biggie is proven at 6'1". Get with the program.

@ MaskDeMasuq,

No, He was 6'2" in a mug shot, he usually wore thick boots. Just b /c you think he looked taller than 6'1 makes no sense.

The Man was shown to be 6'2" in Shoes. If you know anything about BIG, you know he wore Boots alot.

He was 6'1" Barefoot, still tall.

Looks too tall to be a 6'1 guy. 6'1.75 is lowest I could buy but the full 6'2 seems far more likely from pictures and videos I've seen of Biggie.

He was 6’3

No he wasn't. He was 6'1 barefoot...6'2 with shoes. He's listed at both 6'1 & 6'2.

Was 6'2" in his Mug Shot, of course with Shoes. He was a solid 6'1" .

He was a solid 6’2”
Canson said on 27/May/21
He could look 6’3 at times to tell you the truth or 6’2.5
MaskDeMasque said on 25/May/21
Probably the best rapper ever. So much better than this mumble rap crap we have nowadays.
GTB173cm said on 7/Mar/21
He didnt look any less than 6’2.
Sachix said on 12/Dec/20
Carlos Santana not everyone is shorter them their height, Biggie was quite tall legit 6’2
Carlos Santana said on 12/Sep/20
6'1 ½ is good for him.
Solomon said on 22/Aug/20
He was 6’3
viper said on 7/Aug/20
Nah, 6-1-6-1 1/2
Slim 6'1" said on 6/Aug/20
Bat fleck is not actually 6’2” nor could Jackman but this guy seriously is
viper said on 4/Jun/20
186-187cm range
OriginalAnon said on 31/May/20
187cm most likely, I think.
Mr busta said on 20/Apr/20
Heyy rob you have to say Something about craig macks height he looked like he was the same height as biggie but it said that he was 174 cm i would give him 188 cm
Jtm said on 7/Apr/20
well there is a video with method man and nas. he's noticeably shorter than method man and he has the camera advantage.
Canson said on 6/Apr/20
@Spencer and Viper: watch the video of when he was on Martin and see him next to Tommy Ford. There are some variables because I didn’t pay attention to footwear and we don’t know if Ford was a true 6’4” peak. He looked very tall but on a different episode where the lady WNBA players were on Tommy didn’t look as tall as Rebecca Lobo
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Apr/20
Claimed 6ft3. I think arguably a strong 6ft2
viper said on 5/Apr/20
Well, In a couple of documentaries I've seen over the years on him a couple of rappers, I think they were involved with Puffy described him as 6-1
Spencer said on 4/Apr/20
Nah he was taller than that Viper. He towered over Diddy who is 5'10 min. 188-189 cm guy easy
viper said on 29/Mar/20
6-1.5 maybe

He was a 186-187cm guy IMO
Spencer said on 26/Mar/20
6'2.5" min
Canson said on 15/Feb/20
Yea he has boots on here and is tilting his head. With Tommy Ford it looked maybe 1” at times or 1.5” but maybe footwear was different. And with Tommy no guarantee he was the full 6’4”

@ SnerhagAip777

"He was a huge guy. He had the presence of a 6'6 guy."

Canson said on 2/Aug/19
@Viper: I actually believe he was taller. He looked at least 6’2”. Watch Martin when he was on with Tommy. Not sure if Tommy was really 6’4” because Rebecca Lobo seemed taller though so maybe he was less. But remember a bigger guy like him won’t have the best posture
viper said on 1/Aug/19
He was a 6-1-6-1.5 guy
PD 214 said on 30/Jul/19
He looks huge in his videos and photos. Definitely 1.88 m ie a solid 6'2
edwards said on 30/Jul/19
Yes dude i heard that too
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Feb/19
Autopsy reports usually aren't accurate, because dead bodies are taller due to decompression of the discs. I think Paul Walker listed 6'3" on his autopsy report if I'm not mistaken.
viper said on 19/Feb/19
6-1 was his original listing.

Not taller.

And they do fudge on autopsies
SnerhagAip777 said on 17/Feb/19
He was a huge guy. He had the presence of a 6'6 guy.
olney28 said on 5/Jan/19
Don't see how the autopsy would fudge height so 6'2 it is
michael loughrie said on 5/Dec/18
None the less, he's the NOTORIOUS big.
MAD SAM said on 5/Aug/18
Autopsy report would be of a possible shrieked body due to loss of blood supply, he’s gotta be close to 6’3” at 190 cm
Canson said on 4/Jul/18
@Viper: he looked taller than that with Tommy Ford when he was on Martin. Not sure if Tommy was a legit 6’4” but he often looked it (along with 6’3-6’3.5 at times).
viper said on 5/Apr/18
He's been listed at 6-1 before. Don't think he's taller than that
JJStyles said on 3/Jan/18
Nope that's a giant 6'3
Brian said on 7/May/17
It's possible he was 6'2", given that he was pushing 400 pounds by the time he died, his weight could've definitely made him appear shorter
Canson said on 24/Apr/17
He's taller than flat 6'2. I remember in Martin he stood next to Tommy ford and was maybe 1" or so shorter

@Sandy Cowell How did you not know Biggie had died it was like 20 years ago
Sandy Cowell said on 19/Apr/17
I arrived on this page ready to write something funny only to discover the poor guy's no longer with us. It seems somehow inappropriate now.
I'll put 6ft2.5 for Christopher after studying the other comments.
RIP Chris. How sad.
Ice said on 26/Jun/16
I had always imagined him to be a legit 6'3 " .
jay said on 29/May/16
jay-z i know for a fact is 6'2 and in the video where him and biggie are performing on stage jays got a inch on him i'd say he's closer to 6/6'1 @ Troy 2pac was the same height as puff daddy who is 5'10 in the picture where their standing together and pacs flippin the double birdy you can clearly tell he's the same height as puff .Look at pictures of puffy and biggie and then tupac and biggie about the same height ratio i seen puffy in hollywood back in 08 he ran right by me he's 5'10 and biggie got a couple inches on him i'd say tops biggie was 6'1
slothee said on 21/Feb/16
I'm putting my money on 6ft 1.5in
slothee said on 27/Dec/15
I'm betting he's more 6'1" than 6'2".
MrTBlack said on 10/Dec/15
I think 6'2" sounds good for now but looked 2" shorter than Method Man and 4" taller than 2pac so I wouldn't rule out 6'1".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/15
He wasn't quite a 6ft3 guy. Shorter than Snoop Dogg but maybe slightly taller than Jay-Z.

"The Notorious B.I.G.'s Height is 6ft 2½in (189cm)"
Ice said on 7/Nov/15
395 ilbs really is extreme . Thats nearly 180 kg .
Matthew190 said on 21/Aug/15
6'2" is correct. Gets listed at 6'3" sometimes, but he was 6'2".
Troy said on 13/May/15
Rob, you have Tupac listed at 5'9" and Biggie at 6'2" but I don't know if I see a 5 inch height difference.

they could look more 4 inches apart at times.

He was definitely creeping toward 400lbs by the time of his death.

This is the least he could have been.
Tunman said on 2/Jan/15
Any idea why this guy was nicknamed biggie smalls,6'2 is rather tall although at 395 lbs one would be noticed only as obese at any height.
Duhon said on 29/Dec/14
Biggie's footwear of choice were Timberland boots so it wouldn't be surprising how he could give off the impression of being a strong 6'3".
c said on 28/Dec/14
thanks for adding one of my favourite rappers rob but i always thought he was 6 foot 3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/14
Rob, is a fraction over 6ft2 possible for Biggie?
Editor Rob
from looking at him, close ot 6ft 2 looks ok, but above or below a mark is always possible.
Sam said on 22/Dec/14
Even if slouching here, with 6'3" listed Method Man, does Biggie really look 6'2" even if slouching a bit more? Click Here
A weak 6'2" is the best I can see him, he looks more a strong 6'1" with Puffy too at times.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/14
I guessed 6ft2-3
grizz said on 20/Dec/14
395 pounds? :O Woah
MrTBlack said on 20/Dec/14
A Celeb who was long overdue for a listing Thanks Rob. Always thought he was a solid 6'2" guy.
Bishop said on 20/Dec/14
My bad, Rob. I said 74 inches was 6'1" by accident XD
jtm said on 20/Dec/14
didn't look over 6'1 to me.
