FBI Releases Biggie’s Murder Case Files

Rapper Notorious B.I.G.

This past January, the LAPD “reinvigorated” their investigation of rapper Christopher Wallace’s (Notorious B.I.G.) 1997 murder, due to new, previously unreleased information. Though the FBI officially closed their case in 2005, they’ve just released some of their documents, prefaced by a disclaimer stating that “the information found in these files may no longer reflect the current beliefs, positions, opinions, or policies currently held by the FBI.” It’s now clear that Big fell with a bag of weed in his pocket, pants size 48, but the occasion of his death, at just age 24, remains as baffling as ever. The release of these files doesn’t make it feel like the FBI or LAPD are near a public resolution of the crime, and the suggestion that these papers might now help civilians easily solve it’s complexity is equally demoralizing.

    I think at this point if nobody blames Suge knight for ordering that crooked ass cop to kill both Tupac and Biggie are just living in the waking life. Suge Knight is the man they need to question, jesus christ this case could of been solved almost 15 years ago, but the FBI do not really give one damn fuck about another black man dead, now do they?
