The Notorious B.I.G. Murder Investigation Reopened

Thirteen years since The Notorious B.I.G.’s murder, a task force is still actively investigating the unsolved case.

According to CNN, a couple of months ago authorities received new information that caused them to reopen the case. The exact specifics on the new information are confidential, but a law enforcement source told the news network that the LAPD, the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office and the FBI are all looking into it.

The beloved rap star was gunned down on March 9, 1997 leaving a party in Los Angeles. Many people believe it stemmed from the heated war between the East and West Coast rap scenes. —Elan Mancini

    If Biggie were alive today there would be no Wacka Flaka, Soulja Boy, Lil Boosie, Yung Joc, Young Dro, Gucci Mane, OJ Da Juiceman, Dorrough and other such pure garbage. Suge Knight is shaking in his boots right now waiting for the feds on this one.

    Man, this sounds good, but after 13 years, you’d have to wonder what kind of shape the evidence/witnesses are in.

    I’d hate to see the killer caught, only to have the case thown out on a technicality. I wonder if Harry Billups is still the prime suspect…

      Is that the corrupt cop dude with the shrine to Tupac in his house that drove the same color impala SS that was seen at the shooting? I thought he was the one who did it.

        @EReal

        Everything’s on point except for the corrupt cop part. I don’t think he was ever a cop. I could be wrong.

          @EReal and sealsaa

          The corrupt cop was David Mack.

  • Savage

    yo on the real i remember lapd had a the suspect n it looked jus like FONZWORTH BENTLEY!!! n ya know he used o b diddy’s right hand man….im jus sayin

    • EReal

      LOL.

  • smashin

    serious question now lads,iam from ireland and our take on it is suge set pac up cause he owed him a fortune,and did biggie for good measure,east vs west SELLS.whats the real story?

    Most of the rumors I’ve heard over the years points towards LAPD themselves, specifically the ones who moonlighted as Death Row bodyguards. While in jail, Suge said “Yeah! We got that motherfucker!” when learning of BIG’s death (Note: it’s officially a rumor, but I did read that somewhere).

    If the LAPD is behind all of this it’s not likely to ever be proven in a court of law. I honestly can’t name too many instances of cops rolling on other cops.

    police protect police. they dont to be shown up dirty on this, it will come to nuthin. Even if the bad guys were bodyguards/police/badguys.

    On the real tho, the photfit did look like Fonzworth Bentley.

    yeah I saw that CNN story…we all know who they looking at…

  • Q461

    Suge Knight is possibly the worst thing to ever happen to rap music. Granted his label brought us The Chronic, Doggystyle, All Eyez on Me and other classic joints…..but this dude possibly killed both Pac and Big…..Would be crazy to think they would actually solve the murder of one of these cats all these years later

  • Harry O

    Suge Knight would’ve shit himself after hearing this news. He’s going down, finally.

    Q461. Don Macaine. We have some heavyhitters on patrol tonight.

  • stupidhaters

    @HU bitch is u crazy biggie would be doing the same shit they doing to get paid shut yo hating ass up

    I believe that would be a good thing for biggie family,fans,and friends that biggie murder is solved.I don’t think any one should be judge by the hurt that we as fans and friends has experience no one should speak bad about Suge Knight i don’t think he had anything to do with that.I think the people close to him is the blame.strangers can’t hurt you only the one’s thats closer to you.Brooklyn for life do or die bedstuy and iam out one love.

    I don’t know what the heck is going on, man. I don’t understand why in the world they would wait until 13 years have gone by to reopen this case. Seems mighty strange to me.

    What I don’t understand is why they would wait until 13 whole years have gone by to reopen this case. Sounds a little, no a LOT fishy to me.
