New York Post: Ex-FBI Agent Says Notorious B.I.G.'s Murder Was Ordered by Suge Knight

It's been over two decades since the death of the legendary Notorious B.I.G. and his murder remains unsolved. However, an ex-FBI agent alleges that the hit was ordered by Suge Knight and covered up by LAPD officers.


In the early hours of March 9, 1997, Brooklyn rapper Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace was gunned down in a Los Angeles street. He was 24 years old, leaving behind a wife, two kids, and an ever-lasting legacy.

Although B.I.G.'s brutal murder remains unsolved 24 years after his death, retired FBI agent Phil Carson claims to know who murdered him and how the authorities covered up the case.

Carson, who worked the case for two years, told The Post that B.I.G. was executed by Amir Muhammad, a Nation of Islam convert hired and paid by Death Row Records founder Marion “Suge” Knight. He said:

“All the evidence points to Amir Muhammad. He’s the one who pulled the trigger."


Carson's accusations are backed up by Don Sikorski, a film producer, and Brad Furman, the director of "City of Lies," a film that follows B.I.G's death, aftermath, and investigations.


Sikorski told The Post that the murder was no mystery, claiming that he and Furman have had access to sealed court documents chronicling the investigations into the unsolved case.


An FBI report obtained by The Post corroborates the allegations that Muhammad was identified as the shooter while naming LAPD Officer David Mack as the owner of the vehicle that was used during the murder.

Carson believes the murder was revenge for [Tupac] Shakur's death.

Carson maintains there was a massive coverup by the LAPD following B.I.G.'s death due to the relationship between Mack and Muhammad. The pair attended college together, and Muhammad is the godparent of Mack's two children.


Another shocking revelation made by Carson is that B.I.G. was not the intended target of the hit. According to the ex-FBI agent, Sean "Diddy" Combs, who was traveling in a separate car, was Knight's original target.

The premise of the allegations lies in the East Coast-West Coast hip hop rivalry that existed between Knight, who founded Death Row Records in Los Angeles, and Combs' Bad Boy Records label in New York City.


B.I.G.'s death came just six months after another rap icon, Tupac Shakur, was shot and killed in Las Vegas. The "California Love" hitmaker, whose murder also remains unsolved, was signed to Death Row Records.

Carson believes that the murder was revenge for Shakur's death and that Knight also blamed Combs for the death of a friend in 1995. The former agent says he brought the case and evidence to the local US attorney’s office, who failed to prosecute.

As the case behind the "Big Poppa" hitmaker's death remains unsolved, Carson says there is enough evidence to bring the late rapper's family justice. B.I.G., who would've been 49 years, is still considered a rap icon whose legacy will live on.
