Suge Knight Connection Explored In Biggie and Tupac Sequel That Dives Deep In The East Coast West Coast Feud
Acquired by Gravitas Ventures, the new documentary about The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur, 2 major hip hop stars will soon be available.
According to Variety, Last Man Standing gives a comprehensive history of the rap feud between the two stars.
Also included will be an examination of the recent allegations of former LAPD detective Russel Poole. Poole made the statement that the murder of The Notorious B.I.G. was commissioned by co-founder and CEO of Death Row Records, Suge Knight.
Tupac Shakur was gunned down on September 13, 1996, in a hail of gunfire at the young age of 25. Five bullets pierced his body, as Suge Knight was the driver of the car he was in and was injured in the shooting.
Six months later, Christopher “Biggie” Wallace died on March 9, 1997.
After stopping at a stoplight in Los Angeles, 4 bullets riddled the hip hop giant in a drive-by shooting. He was just 24.
Many believed the 2 murders to be a culmination of the so-called rap feud between the East Coast and West Coast rap scenes.
Bloomfield, creator of both Biggie & Tupac films had this to say about this project –
“This is a film of conviction…I really believe that the LAPD were involved [in the murder of Biggie Smalls]”
“and I really believed in Voletta’s lawsuit [and} I was horrified to see the way they were sort of derailed constantly by the LAPD and their machinations.”
“I very much hope that [through] the film, with the help of [retired FBI agent] Phil Carson and so on, there will be some kind of resolution. I would very much like the film to be a part of that.”
So what role does Suge Knight play in either of these murders?
To date, both murders are unsolved. Though a prime suspect in 2Pac’s case was a guy by the name of Orlando Anderson.
As for Biggie, rumors swirl that a hitman was hired by Suge Knight as revenge for the killing of Tupac Shakur. However, that is not proven.
Suge is currently serving time at a San Diego County, California jail on charges unrelated to these killings. Admitted in October of 2018, the former hip-hop mogul is not eligible for parole until October 2037.
