BIG’s killer revealed in a report just hit the web recently alleging that the murder of the rapper was covered up. Along with that, the ex-FBI agent who worked the case noted who was responsible for the death of Big Poppa.
According to retired FBI agent Phil Carson, Suge Knight financed the hit that went down on Biggie and noted it was carried out by a man named Amir Muhammad with the assistance of corrupt LAPD officers.
Muhammad, who was originally known as Harry Billups, changed his name when he joined the Nation of Islam. He has reportedly reversed his identity and is now known as Billups.
Carson said, “All the evidence suggests that the alleged BIG’s killer is Amir Muhammad. He’s the one who pulled the trigger. There were plenty of others who helped orchestrate it [and] allowed him to pull the trigger.”
Knight, who is serving a 28-year prison sentence after his 2018 conviction for murder in a hit-and-run case, founded Death Row Records, while Smalls was under contract with rival Bad Boy, helmed by Combs.
Carson spoke on the alleged cover-up, saying it “was the biggest miscarriage of justice in my 20-year career at the FBI. I had evidence that LAPD officers were involved, and I was shut down by the LAPD and city attorneys inside Los Angeles.”
The former agent revealed that Diddy was the intended target for the hit, not Biggie. Carson said that this information had Diddy “pretty freaked out” after learning that he was the focus. The Wallace family’s civil case against the LAPD reportedly contains all the evidence related to the murder but was sealed by a federal judge. The criminal investigation for Biggie’s murder remains open, though.
Wallace’s murder took place six months after another unsolved killing – that of rapper Tupac Shakur.
Shakur was a star hip-hop artist on the Death Row label. He was gunned down in Las Vegas in September 1996 just hours after he attended a Mike Tyson boxing match.
His murder was also thought to have been linked to the ‘East Coast-West Coast’ feud and fueled security worries that Wallace and the Bad Boy entourage from New York would be targeted in a revenge hit.
Just six months later, Wallace was in LA where he attended the Soul Train music awards. After the show, he left a party in a black GMC Suburban – the middle car of a three-vehicle convoy.
Soon afterward, his car stopped at a red light on the corner of Fairfax Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard near Carthay Circle.
According to witnesses, a black Chevy Impala pulled up next to Wallace’s vehicle. A man inside the vehicle wearing a blue suit and bow tie fired several rounds into the car.
Wallace was shot four times. The first three shots were not fatal, but the fourth damaged vital organs. He was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
