On the 1996 night Tupac Shakur was killed in Las Vegas, Suge Knight was nabbed for violating his probation (for stomping a guy); he spent five years in prison. During this time, Knight’s former high school classmate and head of security, Reggie Wright junior, took over the bulk of Knight’s duties at Death Row Records, the once–obscenely popular rap imprint, which was about to go downhill.
It was a bad time to be in charge for the ex–Compton police officer, and Wright spent much of his stint fighting lawsuits and dealing with an exodus of artists from the label, notably Snoop Dogg. Making matters worse, LAPD Detective Russell Poole’s murder investigation implicated Wright in the 1997 murder of rapper Biggie Smalls, though he was never charged. Furthermore, former bodyguard Frank Alexander publicly blamed Wright for Tupac’s death.
Wright and another former Death Row business associate, Lloyd Lake, are producing a documentary on the crimes, Justice for the Murders of Tupac and Biggie, which is in the fundraising stage.
Wright advances the claims made in LAPD Detective Greg Kading’s 2011 book, Murder Rap, which blew the case wide open and was the subject of an LA Weekly cover story.
Murder Rap, for which a documentary of the same name is also in the works, implicates Southside Crip Orlando Baby Lane Anderson for the murder of Tupac, and Mob Piru gang member Wardell Poochie Fouse for the murder of Biggie Smalls. (Both Anderson and Fouse have since been murdered themselves.) The book fingers Sean Combs (aka Puff Daddy) and Knight, respectively, for setting the deaths in motion. Combs and Knight could not be reached for comment for this story. L A Weekly online article Jake Paine 10th April 2014, ‘Time to Close the Book on the Tupac & Biggie murders?’
Seventeen years after the murder of Notorious B.I.G. a source tells RadarOnline.com that the Los Angeles Police Department knows who was responsible for the planning and execution of the rapper’s murder, but will never make an arrest because doing so would expose a pervasive cover-up of police involvement, the revelation of which would shake the department to the core.
Christopher Wallace, aka Notorious B.I.G., was murdered while riding in the front seat of a Suburban after leaving a hip-hop party in the Miracle Mile area of Los Angeles on March 9, 1997.
Several years after his death, Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace, and his widow, Faith Evans, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the LAPD, former LAPD Officer Rafael Pérez and his partner, Officer Nino Durden, alleging that the murder was committed in ‘in a very efficient, organized and professional manner, suggesting that a high degree of coordination and planning preceded his murder,’ according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit also claimed that disgraced former Officer Pereź, who was the central figure in one of the biggest scandals in the history of the LAPD, admitted to cops that he and former cop David Mack, ‘conspired to murder, and participated in the murder of Christopher Wallace’.
