The B.I.G. Murder Case Is Going, Going, Back, Back to the L.A.P.D.

After 13 years, the unsolved case surrounding the death of rapper Biggie Smalls is getting busted back open.

CNN is reporting

that new evidence has recently come to light surrounding the 1997 murder of Chris Wallace, aka the Notorious B.I.G. Biggie’s assassination was believed by many to be retribution for the death of rapper Tupac Shakur just six months earlier. The two artists were represented by dueling East Coast and West Coast hip-hop record labels. Although the reasons for reopening the case remain confidential, rumors of a scandal within the L.A.P.D. abound. Los Angeles City Councilman Bernard Parks tells CNN accusations about a police cover-up are “absurd.”
