Man Admits Being an Accessory to Notorious B.I.G. Murder
In a strange twist in the ongoing saga of the unsolved death of Notorious B.I.G., an incarcerated man named Clayton Hill has reportedly confessed of his involvement as an accessory after the fact in the slaying of the late Brooklyn, N.Y., rapper.
According to a report on HipHopDX, Hill (who is a former Nation of Islam member and is jailed at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago), admitted to receiving a semi-automatic handgun that was purportedly used to shoot Biggie in March of 1997. The alleged person who gave him the weapon was a fellow N.O.I. member who introduced himself as Dawoud Muhammad.
"[Dawoud Muhammad] stated to me that he was on the run for the murder [of The Notorious B.I.G.]," Hill wrote to the hip-hop website via the CorrLinks email system for federal inmates. "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."
As Hill plans to reveal in his upcoming e-book, 'Diary of an Ex-Terrorist,' Dawoud handed Hill the gun "that could have been a .9 millimeter or a .40 caliber" in a wrapped white undershirt. Hill also alleges that Dawoud bragged about the shooting and getting paid 25 Gs for the murder.
After allegedly receiving his final instructions from Melvin Muhammad, Hill claims he was ordered to take the "property" to Louisville, Ky., and deliver the gun to Emile Muhammad, the personal chauffeur of Minister Louis Farrakhan. The gun was then taken to its "final destination within the headquarters of the Nation of Islam."
HipHopDX.com couldn't locate any published reports connecting the Nation of Islam with the murder of B.I.G., and Hill also couldn't confirm with "absolute certainty" that Amir Muhammad, the suspected gunman in the rapper's death, was the man who went by the name, Dawould. Hill also stated that he contacted Assistant US Attorney Nancy DePodesta and the FBI's Domestic Terrorism Unit on October 2010 and divulged his involvement in the Biggie shooting.
This revelation comes after convicted murderer Deter Isaac admitted he shot Tupac Shakur in Manhattan's Quad Studios in November 1994 after allegedly being paid $2,500 dollars by James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond, who currently sits in jail on charges of alleged drug trafficking. The late rapper was shot five times and survived but the incident sparked a bi-coastal feud that ultimately resulted in the murders of both him and Notorious B.I.G.
