Biggie Smalls’ mother has spoken with The Daily Mail on the 20th anniversary of her son’s death revealing she is convinced she knows the identity of Notorious B.I.G’s death.
Voletta Wallace, 64, said in the interview that she and LAPD detectives know who is responsible for her son’s death but says a ‘conspiracy’ prevents the case from ever being solved.
Biggie, aka Notorious B.I.G whose real name was Christopher Wallace, was gunned down on March 9, 1997, in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles after playing at the Soul Train Awards.
He left the event in a two-car convey trailed by P. Diddy who allegedly opted to travel in a seperate car.
A driver in a Chevrolet Impala pulled alongside Biggie’s GMC Suburban SUV and opened fire on Biggie who was hit by four bullets resulting in his death.
20 years after the shooting Voletta has spoken out about her son’s death.
“I have a very good idea who murdered Christopher and I genuinely believe that the LAPD know exactly who did too,” she told The Daily Mail.
“They’ve done their investigation but they just refuse to move forward. I don’t know why they haven’t arrested who was involved.
“It seems to me that it’s one giant conspiracy and someone is definitely being protected somewhere down the line.”
Although Voletta admitted to knowing who murdered Biggie, she didn’t publicly name them and added that the longer the case remains unsolved, she’ll never really find closure.
“There’s no closure for me until that murderer is behind bars and sentenced,” she said.
“That may give me some closure to grab onto, but it sure won’t ever bring my son back.”
The Daily Mail also added that a source who was in Biggie’s inner circle revealed Biggie may not have been the intended target of the shooting.
