I understand the urge not to speculate but it does strike me a bit odd that Faith Evans would have been celebrating on the phone with Zip over the shooting in Vegas and her husband, who was more involved in the dispute with Tupac, had no idea. Nobody is ever going to jail for this, so I doubt anyone that a witness alleges was involved is going to say much of anything about it. So yeah remember to take it all with a little grain of salt, because in the end there is no real proof given just testimonies by people who might have something to gain with what their claims and nothing that would hold up in a court of law or anything and would just be deemed circumstancial. These were 2 of the voices of my youth and i had to see the places where that part of my life was stolen. Remember, Zip is his kids godfather and Faith was very close with Zip.
Thats why Faith called Zip immediately after Pac was shot and asked about his involvement. The lead investigator, Greg Kading, put together a brilliant case against the real murderers of the two rap stars and the evidence was enough to put the major culprits, Puffy and Suge Knight, behind bars for a very long time but when the case got dropped and the evidence got shelved, it seems like Tupac and Biggie family will never get justice for there murders. Also, wasn't Biggie in the hotel room in Anaheim when Puffy first said he wanted Suge and Tupac dead in front of a room of people. I suspect that it will continue to be the same. There's been too much wild speculation about these cases out there already - a ridiculous amount, really, but that's what happens when there's an information vacuum with nothing getting resolved - so I try to stay away from speculating and instead limit things to what the evidence and best witnesses have to say.
Suge was after him in a big way. In 1998, in a gunfight in Compton, California. Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed this in depth documentary, which doesn't look cheap like a lot that I have seen before. Re: Big's knowledge, I don't think he knew anything concrete. It will probably appeal to most people, even those who are not interested in rap music and who are not familiar with its subjects, simply because the story that unfolds is so incredibly compelling. Do not post songs from an album or collection on. This was one of the best docs I've seen in a long time.
Bottom line: a decent documentary about 2 dead rap stars. However, after you have watched this masterpiece, you will know that they have finally been solved. At the time, he was wokring on a book about the murders. This lends the confession courtroom level credibility, essentially solving the twenty year old murder case of Tupac. I just can't believe that the evidence didn't come out on a worldwide scale, because people are still making up there own stories about what happened on both nights of the murders. If you are into documentaries, as I am, you may enjoy it.
I get that, but when faced with overwhelming evidence, hopefully people are open-minded enough to consider other possibilities. The way that he describes how each murder took place, was great and the fact that he shows the real locations, made it even more believable. But of course, for fans of the two slain artists, the documentary will naturally provide yet another dimension. You would have to be a fool not to believe this story. If he's convicted, he potentially faces life in prison.
Plus you have the allegations that his bodyguard Wolf Jones killed Suge's friend and bodyguard Jai Robles back before Pac and Big's murders. If you're determined to get more truth surrounding these murders than could be had elsewhere, then this documentary is key no matter what your belief may be. It is likely that too much time had passed by this time to get phone records from back then, and Kading's task force couldn't talk to her directly because I believe she was part of the Wallace Estate's lawsuit against Los Angeles. I get my attention set on something and then thats all I can see. We hope we have given you the information to finally find closure regarding these senseless murders. Even though if one of the two theories were to be true I'd bet more on this one than Nick Broomfield's heavily manipulated albeit much more entertaining documentary.
With Suge Knight as their prime suspect in the conspiracy to have Biggie murdered in retaliation for Tupac, the documentary moves onto Biggie's investigation. The shooter, who fired at Biggie at least five times Biggie was hit four times , fled the scene. One shot punctured his lung. Fourteen shots were fired, six of them hitting Tupac, who was in the passenger's seat. The step by step viewing of the assassinations were very believable and the interviews with the various gang members were quite shocking. Two of the most notorious unsolved cases in the history of American crime - the murders of renowned rap stars Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls - have been the subject of exhaustive investigations, relentless speculation, and a web of conspiracy theories and dark secrets. To this day, both murders remain unsolved.
Over the past two decades, so many conspiracy theories have been spread surrounding their deaths. They con this cop because they used his evidence to persuade Puffy to have Biggie family drop the 400 million dollar lawsuit. Obviously, she wasnt comfortable putting herself in the middle of such a compromising situation. I ran over and saw Tupac throw a couple of blows. He was ordered to stop his investigation on the case, and retired in 1999. Using information sourced from hundreds of police case files, taped confessions never shown before, and interviews with the lead detective and witnesses, this is the riveting account of the task force that finally exposed the shocking truth behind the deaths of these two rap music icons. Likewise if you're a fan of the rappers, and like documentaries, I heartily recommend.
