A convicted felon has come forward to confess his involvement with The Notorious B.I.G.‘s 1997 fatal shooting cover-up. According to Hiphopdx.com, inmate Clayton Hill — a former Nation of Islam member, said that he concealed the alleged murder weapon. Hill told the site that in October 2010, he met with Assistant U.S. Attorney Nancy DePodesta and two agents with the FBI’s Domestic Terrorism Unit and revealed that in May 1997 — while acting under orders as an official with Muhammad Mosque #15 in Atlanta, Georgia, he took possession of a semi-automatic handgun from a fellow N.O.I. member from LA — who introduced himself as Dawoud Muhammad.
Via the CorrLinks email system for federal inmates, Hill said that Dawoud Muhammad confessed to killing Biggie. He wrote, “[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 to him about the alleged payment for killing Biggie. He wrote that Dawoud said, “And I made twenty-five ‘g’s’ off that.”
- The book is due in stores on July 15th via Clayton’s own Bella Media Group.
