Who Killed Tupac & Biggie? LAPD Detective Greg Kading Names Names! (Video)

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.

A couple of things to keep in mind: (1) Kading’s investigation was directed toward clearing any blame regarding the LAPD’s role/coverup with respect to the murders of ‘Pac & BIG… (2) both the people Kading directly accused are dead #JustSaying

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.

Did you hear about the Congressman that got up on the House floor and commemorated the 20th year since the passing of Notorious B.I.G. by reciting some lyrics from his late hometown’s hero?

Kardinal Offishall – “Kardi And Bullsh!t” feat. DJ Starting From Scratch

Yeaaaahhh! Kardinal Offishall went slap the f#ck off on this track of Biggie runs. R.I.P. B.I.G. – we wholeheartedly agree Kardi O. Respect for this dopeness.

BIG is the greatest rapper who ever lived. He is also of Jamaican lineage. We did this freestyle in the energy of when we saw the footage of him 17 years old on the block just spitting some bars. The ultimate expression of Hip-Hop – BEATS AND RHYMES.

Global Grind TV interviews with the Biggie’s (aka Notorious B.I.G., born Christopher Wallace) eldest child. She is now a student at Penn State University; into fashion…NOT rap.

On a tour of Poppa’s old stomping grounds, the clip above celebrates B.I.G.’s life and impact on Hip-Hop and folks in it… while giving us a good look at T’yanna and her future outlook.
