Man Claims Nation of Islam Connected to Murder of The Notorious B.I.G.

While the murder of The Notorious B.I.G. still remains a mystery, a man has stepped forward today with an interesting allegation.

While speaking to HipHopDX, inmate and former member of the Nation of Islam, Clayton Hill, claimed to have been an accessory after the fact in Biggie’s murder.

Hill said that in May of 1997, he was ordered by the NOI to take possession of a handgun from a fellow NOI member who called himself Dawoud Muhammad after Muhammad had allegedly murdered the Brooklyn rap giant.

Hill—who is currently locked up in Chicago on conspiracy and identity theft charges—has reportedly also revealed this information to the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s office. “[Dawoud Muhammad] stated to me that he was on the run for the murder [of The Notorious B.I.G.],” Hill wrote to via the CorrLinks inmate email system. “He disclosed that he was the shooter of The Notorious B.I.G. because he (Dawoud) was a former Blood gang member and was paid to do so.”

Hill elaborates on his claims in his forthcoming e-book, Diary of an Ex-Terrorist, due out on July 15. In the book, Hill details how Muhammad allegedly boasted about the payment he received for the murder, saying “And I made twenty-five Gs off that.”

Hill is the latest to come forward with information relating to a high-profile hip-hop shooting. As previously reported, convict Dexter Issac has admitted to robbing rap legend Tupac Shakur in 1994 under the orders of James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond, Czar Entertainment CEO and manager of rapper Game. —Lauren Carter

    Who Shot Ya ?!

    Everybody and they mama, know the composite sketch of the shooter wore a big ass bow tie, which would make him most likely to be a member of the nation. Speaking up many years after the fact is bull, and no matter what happens afterward, Biggie is no longer here because of some thugshit. I put blame on Puffy for letting Biggie even go out to Cali less than a year after Pacs death. They should have known what was going to happen behind enemy lines. Oh well.

    • $yk

      Sheep? LMAO…let me show you “sheep”…

      “he (Dawoud) was a former Blood gang member and was paid to do so.”


      IF this is true, it was thru a Blood connection WITHIN the Nation, and not necessarily THE NOI. Only sheep run with something w/o gaining all the facts.

    • gAT

      Nigga please… U sound like a fucking fool. U just dissed some of the dopest cats ever to touch a mic because u on some religious gangbanging shit. I guess them “White Jesus” piece wearing niggaz ain’t sheep in yo eyez. Oh I forgot… your eyez r closed nigga.

      Any real nigga would know that if u r a crip and u assasinate a nigga u wear red… if u r a blood, u wear blue. If you’re in the Nation u don’t wear a bowtie… Probably “your” government u dumb muthfucka!

    All religions are bullshit, look at seperation it does. Religions have the same concept as racism which is seperating each other and giving each other names. Niggas need to stop joining this shit and cause an uprising to stop the empowered globalists, them muthafuckas keep on keeping secrets from us.

      As far as Puff goes, dont let the dancing and uber-doucheness fool you. Thats just for show.

      As far as the FEDS where concerned. BIG getting popped was doing them a favor. COINTEL-PRO still exist. Im pretty sure BIG wasnt even the one they where watching. It was Puff they was watching on some other shit. BIG didnt OWN A LABEL he didnt make real money like that till after he passed. Its deeper then rap.

    It is not adviseable to allow any of your enemy to use your fans or brother somewhere else to hurt you or the same person without any connections or protection to the person in particular if you really dont’t want anything to happen to him knowing how difficult it is to be alive.It is the matter of being free from any form of occultic involvinment.We will keep on wondering who muddered him.Peace to you and your enemies.From Nigeria 08061358232

  • shellz

    im having a hard time digesting this… y would the nation want biggie killed? even tho if im not mistaken there were allot of nation brothers at tupac hospital room. protecting him. maybe there is a connection… both of those men were truly gifted and had the love of so many people its sad to see blacks killing blacks for whatever reason thug or religious. those men cant be brought back.

  • Chris

    this could be true there is no doubt in my mind, I always thought that b.i.g. just caught up in a whole pool of distruction that had nothing to do with him. It was a professional setup, i really think pac was wanted dead from day 1, b.i.g had to die so it would look like a beef or war.
