Underdogs, we dove deep into the Tupac conspiracy theories which you can find here: http://www.andtheunderdogwins.com/tupac-lies-part-1/ However, we can never separate one great conspiracy theory about this prominent rapper from the 1990’s, without including the Notorious B.I.G, AKA Biggie Smalls. Both of these very young men were killed via gun violence after a much publicized feud between East Coast and West Coast rappers. They were the poster children of this feud, and it cost them their lives. Of course this is if you believe that Tupac is actually dead. Both of these men deserve to have their story told because their murders have never been solved. They are still cold cases that will never have the truth see the light of day. The murder of Biggie, however, is so terrible that the LAPD was sued about their possible involvement and cover up with his death. Who killed Biggie Smalls and did his murder really have anything to do with the death of Tupac?

Christopher Wallace was only 24 years old when he was shot and killed on March 9th, 1997. This was right on the heels of the death of Tupac and the world became chaotic. While Biggie was not associated with gangs, he was definitely no stranger to breaking the law. As a high school drop out, Biggie sold drugs as his source of income. This was also in efforts to help support his baby daughter. He ended up in jail for almost a year because of his drug activities. He also had charges of assault, gun charges, and suspension of robbery, which the latter was never proven. All of this, but people always claimed that Biggie was a kind and gentle person. It was many people’s opinion that Biggie did what he had to do in order to survive and provide for his child. He was not seen as outwardly violent.

After his second time in jail, Biggie decided to do whatever it took to keep him from going back. He and some friends recorded some tracks and sent them to several radio stations in New York. Eventually, Sean “Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy” Combs heard one of Biggie’s tracks and arranged to meet him.  Sean Combs was impressed and signed Biggie to his record company, and became a very good friend. Eventually, Biggie would start recording albums after being a guest on other rappers albums. He eventually struck up a friendship with another up and coming rapper named Tupac Shakur. Their relationship was complicated at the least. At first, they were good friends. However, when Tupac was recording in the same studio as Biggie years later, he was shot outside. Biggie was noticeably absent from the scene thus making Tupac very angry. Some think Tupac blamed Biggie for the hit, while others knew he was hurt that his friend wasn’t at his side.

This single incident blew up the East Coast and West Coast rap feud. At least, that is what the media would have the general public believe. The media had a filed day with the shooting and made these men unwittingly participants in their game to get the best story. Both Biggie and Tupac were angry at each other, but many close to them say that it was blown way out of proportion.  While this incident damaged their relationship, it did not end it. In fact, they were smart enough to play along with the media in order to get records sales, at first. Then, they focused on bringing attention to the race and gang wars that were so prevalent in the 1990’s. People couldn’t tell reality from fiction, and while they were trying to promote a platform for the realities of gang violence, people couldn’t separate Biggie and Tupac from the media storm.  They not only become the icons, but the voices of those who they represented, which proved to be very dangerous. Specifically, Biggie was associated with the Crips, but never was part of the gang. The fact the he ran with them, and wore their colors made him a walking target for a lot of people.

The simple story of Biggie’s death is as follows. Following an appearance on the Soul Train Awards, Biggie and his entourage left the building.  It was right after Tupac was killed and tensions were very high. Rumors were already spreading that Biggie had been the one who called the hit on Tupac. Biggie was actually meet with boos on the stage during the award show so things were not going well. Outside of the awards ceremony was a bunch of gang members from both the Bloods and the Crips.  At this moment in time, the tension was overwhelming, and people had told Biggie to stay home. The entire week before his murder, Biggie was meet with threats and even spoke about it during radio interviews. He was well aware that his life was in danger, but he decided to keep making public appearances. This was either out of stubbornness, or in an attempt to show he wasn’t one to be pushed around.

Biggie, his wife, Faith Evans, and several other people went to after hour parties in hotel and clubs. One of these places was a hotel that shut down the party due to fire hazards. This, in turn, shut down several streets because of the amount of traffic from all of the people leaving this party. Biggie was in a car with a few friends, followed by Sean Combs, and his wife farther behind them. At a stop light a black Chevy Impala drove up next to their car and opened fire. The first reports say the gunman was an African American male with a 9 MM. Biggie was hit in the chest and the only one injured. He died at the hospital less than 45 minutes later.

The investigation into Biggie’s death was almost nonexistent. Just as quickly as the murder happened, was just as quickly as it was forgotten by the LAPD. It was very strange that a homicide, and of a very famous person at that, was pushed aside like nothing happened. People were outraged and demanded a proper investigation. However, they never really got one. Biggie’s Mother sued LA, and the LAPD for neglecting a crime. A massive investigation was launched years after the murder. However, it was stopped the moment they were able to clear their department of any involvement. That didn’t mean that there wasn’t some very serious things uncovered with this investigation. The rabbit whole ran deep,and it looks like people got away with murder. How far did this plan go?Did Biggie really have anything to do with Tupac’s death? Did Suge Knight or even Sean Combs have a hand in killing Biggie? Tune in next time to find out!
