US authorities have released a long-sealed post-mortem report showing that rapper Notorious BIG was shot four times in a 1997 drive-by shooting in Los Angeles which remains unsolved.

The report describes one of the shots as fatal to the Ready To Die star, whose real name was Christopher Wallace.

That shot tore through his left lung, heart and colon.

The killing has been the subject of police and FBI investigations and remains one of Los Angeles' highest-profile unsolved homicides.

Wallace was killed after leaving a music industry event.

Chief Coroner Investigator Craig Harvey said a security hold placed on the autopsy report's release was lifted last week.

There was no reply to a phone message left for a lawyer who represents Wallace's family and widow, Faith Evans, seeking comment.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
