Notorious B.I.G. Died In Hit 'Arranged By Suge Knight', Ex-FBI Agent Claims

A retired FBI agent has claimed that Death Row Records founder Marion 'Suge' Knight paid to have the rapper Notorious B.I.G. killed by a professional hit man in a revenge attack following the killing of Tupac Shakur.

Phil Carson, a retired FBI agent who worked the case for two years, told the New York Post that corrupt Los Angeles Police officers helped cover up the case.

Carson claims Knight paid a hitman to carry out the killing.

He said: "Suge Knight financed the murder.

"Suge was ticked off that his cash cow Tupac was murdered. Suge had an accountant that was part of Death Row Records who helped do the financial side of things to pay for the murders."

The retired agent says the case is the 'biggest miscarriage of justice' in his 20-year career with the FBI.

Wallace was shot and killed on an LA street on 9 March 1997 - the killing was believed to have stemmed from a bitter rivalry between the LA-based Death Row Records and New York-based Bad Boy Records, which was run by Sean Combs - aka P Diddy.

Filmmakers Don Sikorski and Brad Furman, who created the 2018 movie City of Lies, which centred on the murder and its investigation, told the New York Post they had seen 'sealed court files' that backed up Carson's claims.

Sikorski said: "All the answers are in black and white."

Carson also alleges that the intended target had been Combs, who was 'pretty freaked out' when he was told.

Knight is currently serving a 28-year sentence following his 2018 conviction for murder in a hit-and-run case.

Carson's interview comes just weeks before the release of a new documentary exploring the murders of Wallace and Shakur.

Last Man Standing comes from British filmmaker Nick Broomfield and claims to have 'new evidence' that has never been heard before.

In footage from the new documentary, Broomfield can be heard speaking with a source.

He asks them: "Which officers are you saying were implicated in the murder of Biggie Smalls?"

To which the person on the phone replies: "There were five officers that were involved in it."
