Although the identity of the person who killed the Notorious B.I.G. is currently unknown, the late rap legend’s wife believes the Los Angeles Police Department may have knowledge about the killer.
“We know he was murdered, but we believe that the LAPD knows who’s responsible,” Faith Evans said during an interview with HuffPost Live while expressing her thoughts that the LAPD isn’t telling the public everything regarding the case. “That’s what we believe.”
As a result, the singer wants the case surrounding B.I.G.’s death reopened with more people working to solve it. In addition, Evans stated expressed.
“All we can do is hope that happens,” Evans said. “But we’re just happy that we’re here to preserve his legacy and [make sure] his kids are happy and they’re living great lives.”
The Notorious B.I.G. was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997. Despite various developments in the case, the killer has yet to be caught.
As for whether the infamous East Coast vs. West Coast rap feud had anything to do with her former husband’s death, Evans stated that she didn’t think the beef contributed to it any way.
“The only way you can look at it is tragic. Tragic and senseless,” she said. “But I don’t think that situation was the result of being in the music business. It’s a little deeper than that. I think all the things that came with it definitely added to the hype of things. The whole media element, and people being able to say what they think and not be accurate.”
