Just in case the decades of foot-dragging and the much-hyped USA Network miniseries did not quench your thirst for knowledge on the Notorious B.I.G. & Tupac murders, VICE gets the scoop in ’10 Questions’ posed to the lead investigator. And he answers them directly!

Ever wondered who committed the murders of Tupac and Biggie? Greg Kading, the LAPD Detective who investigated the murders, claims he has the answers. With a theory that allegedly implicates Sean Combs and Suge Knight, Kading claims to have solved two of the most famous murders in US history.

Freshco Shares Memories of Working with The Notorious B.I.G. (Video)

For those who don’t know: Freshco (aka Shawn Conrad) is FIRE on a mic! I’ll post my all-time fav joint from him after the jump. But for now, take my word if you have no other reason to care. Then click play and consider that Biggie mostly worked with microphone masters back in the day. And he wanted to put something down with Freshco. That ought to tell you something!

But let me tell you something… Freshco has a previously unreleased track featuring himself and the Notorious B.I.G.! However, the lionshare of Freshco’s talk is about memories of B.I.G., not that track.

Come back with me to 1993 when Biggie and I met and did some music together. Before the Tupac beef. Before the King of New York.
