Underdogs, here is your reminder to please check out the link above if you are just joining us! Also, please remember that each of these posts that I write about a person’s death that is surrounded in mystery is not meant to be offensive. These are stories and theories about a real unsolved crime, and involves real people. While famous, Biggie Smalls had a family, a mother, wife, children, and friends. I don’t believe for a moment that his murder will ever be solved, but it doesn’t mean that people can’t still look into what happened. There were a lot of mistakes made, and a lot of questions that will never be answered. The point is, if we don’t learn from the mistakes that were made, we are are bound to repeat them over and over again. This particular case got a lot of attention because of who was killed, but it didn’t mean that anyone would ever solve the mystery. They may not want it solved. Let’s take a good look at who could have killed Biggie Smalls and why they got away with murder.
Before we get into this, I want to specify that I don’t think that Biggie Smalls faked his own death. As I have said before, I think Tupac could have, but I don’t seem to find any real reason that would make me think Biggie faked his own death. Biggie was in a very dangerous situation at the time of his death. He lived with daily threats to his life and there were a lot of people very angry with him if he deserved it or not. People were blaming him for Tupac’s death, or were angry at him for his gang affiliation even though he wasn’t a member. To put it lightly, he had just as many people that wanted him dead as Tupac. I think Biggie was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and took a stupid gamble with his life that he lost. So who pulled the trigger? Or, who paid for the trigger to be pulled? Keep in mind one interesting thought. The 9 MM gun that was used to kill Biggie was very rare. In fact, there were only 2 in the United States at this time. One of those two guns belonged to David Mack, who was a person of interest in this case. Why is this still unsolved? No one wants to know the truth.
One of the easiest solutions to this theory is that Suge Knight arranged for the hit on Biggie Smalls. Many people blamed Biggie for the death of Tupac, however, no evidence that he had anything to do with his death. The rumor is that Biggie paid 1 million dollars to the young gang member, Orlando Anderson to carry out the hit. Biggie, himself was said to be in Las Vegas that night, but didn’t leave his hotel room. Instead, he paid Anderson to provoke a fight and kill both Tupac and Suge Knight. Again, none of this could be proven. However, it didn’t stop the rumor mill from going over time and this news eventually getting to Suge Knight. While he survived the hit, Tupac was murdered and Suge was injured.
Suge Knight was the head of Death Row Records and is a very violent person. He is currently in jail for a few murders and attempted murders. Evidences suggests that Suge Knight hired a LAPD police officer, David Mack, to carry out Biggie’s murder. David Mack was on Suge Knight’s payroll since he moonlighted as a body guard to him and his wife. This is actually featured in several shows, including the “Unsolved” series on USA. There was a real life investigation launched about the LAPD, and there were people who went on record saying this is exactly what happened. This came to light due to the fact that Biggie’s Mother sued the LAPD for extreme neglect on this case, and for possible involvement in her son’s death. However, once this thread was being pulled, it frayed and was stopped. This may be the most logical thing that got Biggie killed. Mack publicly denied any involvement in this case.
There are two different theories as to why Sean Combs had some sort of involvement in the death of Biggie. First, it was due to Comb’s actions that lead to the murder. People theorize that it was Sean Combs who hired the hit against Tupac and Suge Knight, to be carried about by gang members, and not Biggie at all. This meant that people were angry and out for blood. In order to strike back, Suge Knight hired a person to carry out a hit on Sean Combs, and Biggie Smalls. Combs and Biggie were supposed to be in the same car, but since they weren’t, Biggie was the one killed. This means that Combs killed Biggie in an indirect way due to his actions.
Others think that Combs killed Biggie in a very direct way, and wasn’t a case of him getting mixed up in a bad situation at all. People argue in this theory that the death of Tupac and Biggie actually had nothing to do with one another. In fact, Tupac was killed because of the fight he got into the night of his death. It was gang related and nothing more. However, Combs took advantage of this and set up a hit on his friend, Biggie. Why would he kill his friend? Money. The opportunity for money was too great, as a dead rapper makes more money than one who is alive. Tupac was all over the place and his music was selling like crazy. What would be better for Combs than to kill his biggest star? Combs was also put on the map after the death of Biggie Smalls. People knew who he was but only as a producer. After Biggie’s death, Combs had his own hit songs and music career. Did he need to get Biggie out of his way in order to further his career? Combs has publicly denied being part of this case.
Another very simple solution is to look for the obvious. The reason I keep saying that Biggie was not a gang member is because of the implication. Biggie ran with the Crips, and even wore their colors from time to time. However, he wasn’t a member of their gang. Why is this a big deal? Well, it puts a huge target on his back from not only rival gangs, but from the Crips themselves. Many gang members were pissed that Biggie was pretending to be part of their world, when he had nothing to do with it. It made them look bad. It made him look foolish. Why keep this act going when they could simply put a stop to it with a hit. Many people believe this is exactly what happened to Biggie.
Stranger than Fiction:
A few theories are very hard to research, but they are out there. One is that Biggie was killed by The National of Islam. However, it is very hard to find research on this matter. Another very strange theory is that both Tupac and Biggie were actually very sick. It seems that they had some symptoms of an unknown virus such as Zika and were killed in order to cover this up. While I don’t give these theories much thought, they are out there. It goes to show that a case such as this, should have been solved. Since it hasn’t, strange and crazy theories keep popping up. Maybe it’s just in order to keep an open dialog.
Those were just some of the very strange, and very real theories that are out there about the death of Biggie Smalls. We don’t know the answer. However, there is a lot of real evidence out there which will never see the light of day. The investigation was stopped, but no one knows why. It can be theorized that both Tupac and Biggie’s deaths actually are connected and to solve one, you will solve the other. What do you think? Who killed these men, or do you think that they are dead at all? People keep saying both Biggie and Tupac are alive and well. Why would they be after all of these years? What are your thoughts?
