Fbi - Prisoner Confesses Involvement In Notorious Biggie Murder Cover-up

A convicted felon has come clean and confessed his involvement as an accessory to the unsolved murder of Notorious B.I.G. - 14 years after the rap icon's death.
The New York hip-hop star, real name Christopher Wallace, was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles on 9 March, 1997, aged just 24.
Los Angeles police launched an investigation into the case immediately after the murder, but failed to file any charges.
Many conspiracy theories have linked Biggie's death to the East Coast/West Coast rap rivalry involving former Death Row Records mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight and his top artist, Tupac Shakur, who was shot and killed in September 1996.
The case was revived earlier this year (11) when officers at the Los Angeles Police Department, working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (Fbi), received a handful of new leads, and now Clayton Hill, a former member of the religious group Nation of Islam, has admitted he helped to hide the gun used in Biggie's slaying.
In an email correspondence to HipHopDX.com, Hill claims he was acting under orders from Nation of Islam officials when he took possession of a semi-automatic weapon from a fellow group member, who called himself Dawoud Muhammad.
He writes, "(Muhammad) stated to me that he was on the run for the murder (of Notorious B.I.G.). He disclosed that he was the shooter of The Notorious B.I.G. because he (Muhammad) was a former Blood gang member and was paid to do so."
Hill, who is serving time for fraud and identity theft, is convinced his confession - previously made to Assistant U.S. Attorney Nancy DePodesta and members of the Fbi in October (10) - was the catalyst for authorities to renew interest in Biggie's murder case.
