A former FBI agent and two filmmakers claim they know who killed Notorious B.I.G. The Brooklyn rapper was born Christopher Wallace was shot and killed in la in 1997. Phil Carson, who worked the case for two years, says Suge Knight was the mastermind. Two filmmakers also make the same claim after seeing sealed court papers.
Don Sikorski and Brad Furman made a 2018 film about Biggie’s death, City of Lies Knight is alleged to have paid Amir Muhammad, a hitman from nation of islam. The murder was allegedly covered up by corrupt LA cops, according to Knight He alleges Knight, founder of Death Row Records, plotted Biggie’s murder Hit.
Biggie was revenge for the 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur.
Shakur was with Knight’s Death Row label; Biggie was with Bad Boy Records. Knight believes Shakur was killed as part of East Coast-West Coast rap feud
Bad Boy founder Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs was allegedly the intended target of Biggie hit. 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.
Phil Carson, a retired FBI agent who worked the case for two years, told the New York Post that the man who pulled the trigger is Amir Muhammad.
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.
Billups is said to be working in real estate in Georgia.
Carson also claims that Combs, the founder of Bad Boy Records, was the intended target of the hit.
Combs, a friend of Wallace, was riding in the vehicle ahead of the SUV that was carrying the late rapper on the night he was shot.
Carson said that when he told Combs of his findings, ‘Diddy’ was ‘pretty freaked out.’
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.
Carson tells the Post that Wallace’s driver, Greg ‘G Money’ Young, did not have much security experience.
According to Carson, instead of stopping at the red light, Young should have sped through, especially at that late hour – 12:47am.
‘Biggie became a stationary target,’ said Carson.
Carson said that eyewitness testimony points to Muhammad, a friend of Mack, as the killer.
