FBI File On Notorious B.I.G. Murder Yields Single Hip-Hop Curio

On Friday, the FBI unveiled its overhauled reading room, which they have re-christened “The Vault.” Along with a spiffy new document reader and a search option, the bureau has uploaded dozens of new files, material that has previously been processed in response to Freedom of Information Act requests.

Included in the new offerings are records related to the FBI probe of the murder of The Notorious B.I.G., a case that was closed in 2005 after federal prosecutors declined to pursue charges in the matter. The rapper (real name: Christopher Wallace) was shot to death in Los Angeles in 1997, a murder that remains unsolved.

While the Wallace file provides little news, it does offer one hip-hop curio, the Los Angeles Police Department property report itemizing the Wallace belongings catalogued post-homicide. As seen in this excerpt, evidence gathered by investigators included pot in a plastic baggy; bloodstained Karl Kani jeans (size 48); a pair of size 13 Timberlands; a Bernini sweater (size 54); and a Primatene Mist asthma inhaler.

And, of course, “3 condoms” that an LAPD official reported were “Magnum” and “Larger Size.”

fofyve & fbiwarontupac sound like some racist blacks pointing crooked ass fingers!!!!!!!
this is for you Verge of Viagra, i'm glad you're not God. He's dead because a piece of crap killed him. How would you like if someone said that's why Elvis is dead?
In my book and film, The FBI War on Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders, I show what at least one FBI section really had to do with Biggie's murder. They killed him to make their murder of Panther progeny Tupac Shakur look like part of the East vs West rivalry, to hide their own orchestration of Tupac's murder. They had also set up that fake East vs West rivalry vs. Tupac's mother, Harlem based Panther leader, Afeni Shakur, and Huey Newton's Oakland National Panther leadership. There's so much more to it that i show with over 1,000 endnotes showing the sources.
Once again you have paternal caucasians standing in judgment and condemning any and everything that's not like them.
The irony of his death is.....large man, large target.....thinner man, harder to hit.....Iggy Pop is still standing..... And rap is not music.....not even close to it.....
It must be music because white people are "borrowing" it.
I say good riddence to anyone with his reputation and because he was a major hip hop promoter. I'm sorry, but that's just not music. I know one thing for sure that Wallace was......he was stupid for smoking pot and having asthma. But, he also has to be commended (just a tiny bit, though) for carrying condoms....unless he did that just to impress the police whenever they went through his pockets.
He should have had the Kevlar condoms.....in case he was shot in the dick...
How strange.....no one has mentioned the other dead piece of crap, Tupac.....
I was just about to... :D
