After 14 years of investigation, the murder of the Notorious B.I.G. is another step closer to being solved.
Clayton Hill, a member of the Nation of Islam and an incarcerated federal felon has confessed to being an accessory in the murder of the late Brooklyn-bred rapper. In a conversation via the CorrLinks email system for federal inmates, with Hip Hop DX, Hill recounted his meeting with Assistant U.S. Attorney Nancy DePodesta and two agents with the F.B.I.’s Domestic Terrorism Unit, where he revealed his knowledge of B.I.G.’s actual killer, a fellow member of the Nation of Islam who went by Dawoud Muhammad, who told Hill back in May of 1997, he was in fact on the run for the murder of B.I.G. and received 25,000 dollars for the job.
“[Dawoud Muhammad] stated to me that he was on the run for the murder [of The Notorious B.I.G.] He disclosed that he was the shooter of The Notorious B.I.G. because he (Dawoud) was a former Blood gang member and was paid to do so.”
In his forthcoming e-book, Diary of an Ex-Terrorist, Clayton quotes Dawoud bragging about his check, “And I made twenty-five ‘g’s’ off that.”
Something tells us all these confessions are being made more for dough than penance...
