One of hip hop’s most prominent unsolved murders may finally get answers.
A retired F.B.I. agent, Phil Carson, claims the tragic murder of The Notorious B.I.G. was done at the hands of the LAPD, and a man named Amir Muhammad allegedly pulled the trigger. N.Y. Post reports, Carson says Muhammad is a friend of corrupt L.A. cop David Mack. Muhammad was briefly a suspect but never charged. He’s now 61, believed to be a real estate broker in Georgia, and goes by his given name, Harry Billups.
Carson worked the case for two tears and told the publication, “There were plenty of others who helped orchestrate it [and] allowed him [Muhammad] to pull the trigger.” Carson says he has evidence LAPD cops were involved, but authorities/city attorneys shut him down.
The former F.B.I. agent also claims Marion “Suge” Knight was the one who financed the shooting that killed rapper Notorious B.I.G. He also claims Suge had corrupt LAPD cops on his payroll, working for him. The article notes the hit was intended for Puffy.
Technically, the criminal investigation remains open, but evidence about the murder remains sealed under a federal judge’s order. There’s also been little to no activity on the case. Carson believes there’s enough evidence to bring justice to the Wallace family.
