For most people, The Notorious B.I.G.‘s death is the subject of endless speculation, debate and what is probably P. Diddy‘s single greatest song to date. For Chicago inmate Clayton Hill, Notorious B.I.G.’s killer is allegedly just a matter of remembering the details. Hill is now alleging that it was fellow Nation of Islam member Dawud Mahammad who ended the rapper’s life in 1997, while acting as a hit man. “[Dawoud Muhammad] stated to me that he was on the run for the murder [of The Notorious B.I.G.],” Hill told HipHopDX. “He disclosed that he was the shooter of The Notorious B.I.G. because he (Dawoud) was a former Blood gang member and was paid to do so.”
Hill’s claims paint an elaborate plot involving the Nation of Islam, aliases and transporting the murder weapon across statelines. Earlier this year the LAPD began investigating new evidence which “reinvigorated” Biggie Smalls’ unsolved murder case. Since Hill claims to have meet with the FBI in October 2010, his revelations could very well be the new details they were exploring. Alternatively, it could be a particularly cold-blooded way to promote his new e-book Diary of an Ex-Terrorist. Call us a little bit skeptical until after he doesn’t have a new release coming out.
