Investigators Find New Info On Biggie's Death!

| Filed under: Legal Matters


Athough it has been 13 years since his death, an new investigation has been launched in the murder of Christopher Wallace (aka Biggie Smalls/Notorious B.I.G.).

The unsolved case was "reinvigorated" months ago due to information about that night. In 1997, Biggie was shot and killed while riding in a Suburban after leaving a music industry party at the Petersen Automotive Museum in El Lay.

A lone gunman, who was described as an African-American man wearing a suit and bow tie, in a Chevy Impala opened fire on Biggie, who was in the passenger seat.

The main theory is the war between West Coast and East Coast hip hop artists - Bad Boy Entertainment in New York, which represented Biggie, and Death Row Records, headed by Marion "Suge" Knight, who represented Tupac.

Retired LAPD detective Russell Poole, who worked on the case, believed that Knight was behind the murder.

"Suge Knight ordered the hit," Poole said, adding that he retired early from the LAPD, in part, because he was sidetracked from following leads in the Wallace case involving police officers, some worked off-duty for Death Row Records.

"I think I was getting too close to the truth," he added. "I think they feared that the truth would be a scandal."

He believed that one of the officers involved is David Mack, a policeman tied to the LAPD Rampart Scandal, who was sent to prison for robbing a bank in 1997, the same year Biggie was killed.

Poole said Mack owned the same type of car driven by the gunman who shot Biggie.

    You're like 13 years too late! I've known this since he got killed and I was only 6 when that happened

  2. 2

    It's no secret to anyone that loved Biggie that the despicable human being that Suge Knight is, had something to do with his death.

  3. 3

    The perduring interest in this guy mystifies me. He was a criminal and someone killed for that reason. End of story.

  4. 4

    So strange that Suge Knight was able to walk around all these years when most everyone in America knew it was him all along. He doesn't even have any money anymore.

    About damn time and hopefully his mom will have her justice, RIP BIG!

    Biggie Smalls is one of the greatest rapper that ever lived. He change the face of Hip Hop but the face of pop culture as well. He is truly missed!!
    I cannot believe that some people here considere him only like a criminal! Most of your politicians/presidents have more crimes on their conscience than this guy and you wouldn't say things such as "just 1 more dirt bag in the ground". RIP Biggie and may this crime be solved, no matter how long it takes, so that your loved ones find peace ans justice.

    Re: Anjolina – um, no Pac has done more for Rap/hip-hop as a whole than Biggie ever could. Big only put out 3 albums THREE WHOLE ALBUMS. One was a double. Pac put out more and HAS more music still! The only thing Biggie has going on in todays music is Jay-Z. Tupac is the true artist here, How old are you seirously? Pac changed the game peep the history rap ain't been shit since 96!

    "Biggie remember when I use to let you sleep on the couch
    And beg the bitch to let you sleep in the house
    Now it's all about Versace
    You copied my style
    Five shots couldn't drop me
    I took it and smiled
    Now I'm back to set the record straight"

    Wow. We never knew it was Suge Knight.. WAIT.. We did! For the past 13 years, we all knew Suge Knight had him killed.

    TL;DR, who cares about this uneducated drug dealer anyway? You live like a thug, you die like one - the end. This was not a great man by any means.

    So Suge Knight killed both Tupac and B.I.G.? I don't even understand. Why did he do it? for money or what? Why would he kill people that made him money, knowing he would lose alot of money? The Police also suck they still haven't found the killers? If they know Suge Knight killed him why wasn't he arrested? maybe police are behind those murders? Such a mystery. Kind of.
