Suge Knight Accused Of Having 2 Rogue LAPD Officers Murder Biggie In New Documentary: He Did That As A Revenge Killing For Tupac Being Killed
Was Suge Knight responsible for Biggie dying in a drive-by shooting?
This past Friday (Aug. 20th), a new project called Last Man Standing premiered. The documentary, produced by Nick Broomfield, explores the murder of Biggie Smalls (real name Christopher Wallace). Specifically, the documentary addresses rumors that the “Juicy” rapper was killed by two rogue LAPD officers who were acting on a hit ordered by Suge Knight–the CEO of Death Row Records. The officers were allegedly gang-affiliated and worked as off-duty bodyguards for Suge Knight.
In a recent interview, Nick Broomfield claimed Suge Knight ordered the two officers–David Mack and Rafael Perez–to kill Biggie in retaliation for the death of Tupac six months earlier. The producer also believes the LAPD concealed evidence to save face. Nick Broomfield claims:
“In the case of Biggie Smalls, there are strong indications that LAPD police officers were involved in that hit. The killing was orchestrated and the hit was put out by Suge Knight. At the time he was in prison, but he placed the hit. He did that as a revenge killing for Tupac being killed. I think the connection between Suge Knight and the rogue police officers who were working off-duty for Death Row is undoubtedly completely established, despite the claims to the contrary by the LAPD who carried on their own separate investigation.”
He later added:
“After the LA riots they opened the ranks up of the LAPD and there was a lot of new recruitment. There was not the normal vetting checks. A lot of people got in who should not have been police officers. There was very widespread corruption, not just confined to Death Row Records. The LAPD have done everything possible to protect their reputation. I think the involvement of the LAPD officers needs to be seen within that context.”
This is not the first time the LAPD was accused of being involved in Biggie‘s death. Detective Russell Poole, who investigated the original case, was the first to come to the conclusion. Former FBI agent Phil Carson also supported the theory. The pair believed Suge Knight hired a hitman named Amir Muhammad (born Harry Billups) to kill Biggie, and they also believed David Mack and Rafael Perez helped him.
