Thirteen years after Christopher Wallace, better known as Notorious B.I.G., was gunned down, Los Angeles Police confirmed that new information has ‘reinvigorated’ the case.

06:33 | , , ,

Detectives have re-opened a murder investigation into the mystery shooting of one of the biggest names in rap music.
Unbelievable: The Life, Death, and Afterlife of the Notorious B.I.G.Thirteen years after Christopher Wallace, better known as Notorious B.I.G., was gunned down, Los Angeles Police confirmed that new information has ‘reinvigorated’ the case.
The possible breakthrough in the high profile cold case was revealed by CNN, but police would not give any further details because inquiries were ongoing.

B.I.G. deal: Christopher Wallace, aka Biggie Smalls, left, shown here with Sean Combs, aka Diddy, in LA in 1997, shortly before his death. LAPD have reopened their investigation into his murder
The 24-year-old New York rapper was shot four times in the chest as he was driven back to his hotel from a music industry party in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997.
A lone gunman wearing a suit and bow tie allegedly opened fire after pulling alongside the rapper’s SUV.

Related? Tupac Shakur, who was shot dead in 1996. It was always been wondered if the deaths of Tupac and Biggie were related
In the years since the killing, a number of theories have emerged, including the suspicion that police officers were involved.
Nobody was ever charged in connection with the death, but it was widely blamed on a rap war between the East and West Coast.
Six months before the shooting, West Coast rapper Tupac Shakur was killed by a gunman in Las Vegas in another murder that has never been solved.
Detectives have investigated claims that the two shootings could have been linked.
Marion ‘Suge’ Knight, head of LA-based Death Row Records, was in the car with Shakur – one of his artists – when he was killed, but has adamantly denied involvement in a tit-for-tat vendetta with Wallace, who was signed to East Coast label Bad Boy Entertainment.
Retired Los Angeles detective Russell Poole has pointed a finger of blame at Knight, even though he was in prison on a parole violation at the time of Wallace’s murder.
Poole also claims that police officers who worked as security for Death Row played a part in the shooting. But he said he retired early from the force because his leads in the case were being ignored.
Former Los Angeles police chief Bernard Parks, who was in charge of the force at the time of the shooting, called claims of a cover-up ‘absurd.’
Raised in Brooklyn, Wallace started selling drugs at the age of 12 and served nine months in prison before going on to sell more than seven million records.
