According to Huffington Post, a former member of the Nation of Islam, Clayton Hill, has come forth with information regarding the death of beloved hip-hop superstar Notorious BIG. Hill told HipHopDX.com that he played an accessory role to the murder of the rapper. Hill is currently incarcerated at a federal prison in Chicago. Hill also told sources that he knows who in fact shot the rapper.
Notorious BIG, also known as Christopher Wallace to family and friends was killed while leaving a party in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997. Hill discloses that upon an order from a “higher-up” at the Muhammad Mosque #15 in Atlanta, he met up at a Greyhound station in Los Angeles with a man who called himself Dawoud Muhammad, and took from him the firearm that he claimed he had used to shoot the rapper.
Hill says that Muhammad told him that he was on the run for the murder of Notorious BIG. Muhammad was allegedly a former member of the Blood Gang, and was hired to perform the hit on the rapper.
Hill is said to be releasing an e-book soon, “Diary of an Ex-Terrorist,” that describes his time with the Nation of Islam. In the book, Hill discusses how he was told to collect “some property,” from Muhammad when they met up at the Greyhound station. The gun that Hill said he took from Muhammad was a semi-automatic hand gun that was possibly a .9 millimeter or a .40 caliber gun. It was wrapped in a white undershirt in a duffle bag.
CNN reported this past January, that the inquiry into the rappers murder was “re-invigorated” by new evidence. The case was worked vigorously by LAPD Detective Russell Poole. Poole resigned from his position as detective in 1999 resulting from his belief that the investigation into the rappers death was being stonewalled from within. Poole firmly believed that formed LAPD officer David Mack and Amir Muhammad carried out the shooting of BIG. Mack was allegedly a super-fan of Tupac. Poole also believes that the order to kill the superstar was ordered by Suge Knight, the founder of Death Row Records, who was incarcerated during the time of the rappers death.
