New Documentary To Examine The “Cover-Up” Behind The 2Pac & Notorious B.I.G. Murders

(AllHipHop News) Tupac Shakur died on September 13, 1996. Christopher Wallace died on March 9, 1997. Almost two decades later the murders of both iconic Hip Hop stars still remain unsolved.

While police and investigative journalists have yet to concretely expose the people responsible for the deaths of 2Pac and Biggie, a new documentary has taken on the task of shedding a light on the complicated stories behind their killings.

Lloyd Lake, a former associate of Death Row’s Marion “Suge” Knight, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the tell-all documentary about the Pac and Big murders. The goal of the film is “exposing the government turning a blind-eye to Suge Knight’s involvement due to his role as a government informant.”

Takashi Bufford (Set It Off, Booty Call) served as producer and director for the documentary. The movie will feature interviews with Reggie Wright, who is described as Tupac’s bodyguard and Suge Knight’s right-hand man, and lawyers familiar with the justice system’s lack of interest in prosecuting anyone involved in the cases. It will also explore the idea of the government using informants to gather information on the Hip Hop community.

“The fact that 17 years has gone by without anyone being prosecuted and there are multiple related shootings and deaths connected with Tupac’s murder for which no one has been charged, this forces us to look at the glaring fact that the legal system failed,” states Lake. “It’s my goal with this documentary to put not only those involved on trial but to reveal the shameful cover up and reveal the truth and facts in the case.”

The documentary hopes to answer the following questions:

  • What does the Government know about Tupac and Biggie murders?
  • Why are there no prosecutions of the individuals involved in the Tupac and Biggie murders?
  • Are there informants involved within the Government’s investigation of the “Hip Hop” music industry?
  • Is the Government disclosing the informants involvement in the prosecution of “Hip Hop” artist?
  • Why are individuals with significant criminal convictions (strikes) still committing crimes and never prosecuted?

Lake is looking to raise $150,000 over the next 30 days. If the filmmakers are able to reach their goal in the allotted time, the documentary will be released to the public.

Anyone who donates more than $25 will receive an advanced copy of the DVD. Other prizes are available as well including a signed copy of the film, a poster of Tupac and Biggie, and VIP invitations to the movie’s premiere.

    I don’t see this as anything but a ploy to make money for this dude. If he donates all proceeds to charity then maybe I could get behind it.

    This is getting old now, it’s been close to 20 years. The fact is the Tupac murder was pretty much solved 2 weeks after his death he was killed by Orlando Anderson. What hasn’t been proven is any other sane or reasonable reason to believe otherwise. Biggie’s case is a little more complicated but it’s obvious If Tupac wasn’t murdered Biggie wouldn’t have been killed either..

    • EvilSteveDallas

      Agreed. People want to make things more complicated then they are…as if Hiphop artists are immune to senseless violence. Hell, you could make the case that had Orlando Anderson been arrested and convicted promptly after Pac’s death, then all the conspiracy rumors would have been much less prominent. Then maybe Biggie lives to put out one or two more great albums before someone else new and hot comes along and people all of a sudden stop buying his shit.

      • ybe87

        Anderson actually was arrested on unrelated warrants and questioned about a month later but there were never any credible eye witnesses that came forward in back in Vegas to be able to build a solid case so the only reason Anderson wasn’t charged was lack of CREDIBLE witnesses. People let the conspiracies and rumors cloud their judgement. People forget. Vegas investigators back in late 96-1997 must of said 100 times “We think we know who did this we just need witnesses to come forward.” it was on America’s Most Wanted, MTV everywhere after that year Vegas PD washed their hands with the case because of the negative attention it brought to a city that at that time was trying to transition from the Mob and gang culture it was known for into an attraction for families, tourist and such. Vegas wanted the story of a fast up coming young rapper killed on the strip to go away quickly. And by 1998, it did. That’s the real story.

    • Oknas

      Even tho im more a pac fan than a biggie fan. Biggie is dope in my top 3 but biggie death is fukked up because he was a scapegoat or retaliation of pac death, so biggie really died for nothing.
      If orlando really did kill pac then that was pac fault 4 the fact that he attacked a real gangsta first and some real street shit happened, karma? That shit happens all the time in these street, i guess its hard for people to believe because its pac.

      • SBRon

        Well, who do you dude’s think Suge called BEFORE they hopped in da whip…?!?

      • Oknas

        Possible, is it factual? No

        I’ve heard so many different stories to come the conclusion that i dont know, the only thing i know for a fact is that one of the stories are either completely true or have truth in them.

    • MLB44

      Thank you! Law enforcement knew who killed both of them soon after they were killed. Vegas PD incompetent! L.A.P.D. very competent but crooked as hell (i.e., cover up). And neither jurisdiction gives a damn about two gangsta rappers. Both murders solved years ago – just no one has been prosecuted.

  3. MrNoName2K

    17 years…damn where has the time gone..im all for seeing the documentary but i just dont think it will break anything..and its obvious the govt never gave a damn though they said they exhausted every resource..yet managed to find saddam hiding in a hole in the middle of the desert..crazy

    We in the internet age lol. If the doc was all about exposing the truth, throw it on youtube. Holding it for ransom for a 100K lol… please.

    • Jayson C Williams

      I work in production commercials and movies it takes a lot more than that to shoot a 10 second commercial, with that said I’ll be donating my culture and it’s Heros are worth more than 25 bucks.

  5. trilltalk1

    this shit is tired and old, truth be told. i am so sick of 2pac name being mentioned in the same vein as biggie. 2pac was more then what happen between him and biggie. if it was not for the beef with pac and big, biggie would not be talked about the way he is. if you disagree you from new york.

    • Jayson C Williams

      So is Pac? Pac couldn’t rap like biggie. Peep their freestyle, Pac was getting excited lmao. You’re just a hater and guess what? I’m from Brooklyn. And I’ve been to LA to state my peace and they all respected and most agreed so you just sound like a Pac Stan. Just facts. You’re prob a nice guy

      • superh8

        U from bk 2day? ? wasn’t ur lieing bitch ass claiming harlem last week!! Smfh @ this bitch

      • trilltalk1

        my nigga you did not go to l.a to state your peace on big and pac. STOP LYING and FAKING nigga. bottom line to my statement is this, pac impact on the game is far superior to biggie. they do not belong in the same vein biggie would not have been as big as he was without the pac beef period.

    • Jayson C Williams

      Nope I went to LA to check my watts family! Watts up! And ur bias so I can’t debate with u. When u become impartial than holla at me. But this blogger sphere not for stans

      • trilltalk1

        my man i didn’t know 2pac, bias my ass.what i am saying is fact. pac made his mark on the game before the biggie beef.saying that does not make me bias, that just means i see things clearly. i never said pac was a better lyricist, i said his impact on the game surpass biggie by a mile.

      • HipHop1980

        2pac was overrated he was all hype. Media,beef,movies etc….. 2pacs first 2 albums both went GOLD! his 3rd album sold 1.5million!!! He didnt start selling till he joined death row started beef with rappers like biggie. Than his 4th album out of nowhere sells 9million. So just 1 year after his 3rd album sells 1.5million. His 4th album magically sells 9million. 2pac was overrated!!!!!!!!! He was all hype. Also he was a Studio Gangsta. He was from new york. He was a back up dancer. Went to acting school. He lied in 90% of his rhymes

      • trilltalk1

        so what you saying having 2 gold albums and 1 platinum album is not success? like i said before the beef with biggie he had already made a his mark in the game. what you saying only validates my statement. there is no comparing the 2 2pac impact was greater and meant more to the game bottom line.

      • HipHop1980

        TUpac was just average rapper before he started beefing with other MC’s. go watch the movie CB4. Biggies first albums sold over 5million and bought hte east coast. He was considered the one of the greatest as soon as hit the scene. Tupac was just a average rapper. in a shorter time biggie hat more hits and awards than tupac. When pac was alive know one considered him the greatest. HE was overrated!!!!!!! like I said before the MEdia, his acting in moives and beef made him not his music!!! You don;t even really hear tupacs music today compared to all the biggie music you hear daily.

      • trilltalk1

        biggie did not sell cause of his music. he sold cause he was beefing with pac. on the hit records are you serious, when my homies call, brenda’s got a baby, keep your head up, i get around. all this shit before the biggie beef. come on my man you better. far as hearing biggie music more then pac that would depend on where you live.

      • HipHop1980

        Biggies first album sold more than pacs first 3 albums combined!!! The pac beef started way after biggie became successful. Remember the East VS.West started with Death Row at source awards in 1995. Biggie and Badboy wanted nothing to do with that bullshit. It was confirmed that pac starteed the beef to sell records and make money. link is below. Also all those songs you mentioned weren’t top hits compared to Biggies songs like Big poppa,Juicy,warning,flav in ya ear,get money etc… biggie won more awards than tupac and also a grammy. tupac doesnt have a grammy.


      • Bumpy Johnson

        you can’t go to any hood WORLDWIDE that doesn’t like 2pac songs…u trippin, HITS….illmatic is probably the greatest album ever and i dont think 1 song hit.

      • trilltalk1

        flavor in your ear was craig mac song, get money was kim and big from the jr mafia album. let’s just agree to disagree, cause we far from where i started this. my whole point was they should not be put in the same vein because pac had a much greater impact on the game. you throwing #’s around that are false, has nothing to do with what i said in the beginning.

      • trilltalk1

        and him not being a gangsta i can agree with that. i never said the nigga was a gangsta. i said putting him and biggie in the same vein was bullshit cause there legacies are totally different. by the way biggie was know gangsta either.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        2pac was a 100 gangsta..one of the realest ever..with or without rapping

      • Bumpy Johnson

        you a gangsta, u ever been out there…if not Stfu

      • Bumpy Johnson

        i know grown men who would cry listening to tupac songs not a song but songs…name another rapper that has that impact.

      • ILL Will

        I coulda sworn bruh popped 2 off duty police officers….studio gangsters don’t do that…If you listen to the bruh speak u can tell he was a strong brother. You forget that brother’s bloodline has been fighting the system for years huh(black panthers). I think that brother was as thoroughly gifted as they come my dude. I think he definitely had more heart than a lot of rappers because every time I saw the boy he wasn’t backing down, he spoke his mind and kept it a lot realer than most. He spoke for the have nots in every forum I ever seen him in and with wisdom beyond his years IMO. Sometimes he would seem belligerent but we forget all the shid that brother went thru at such a very young age. Rap Superstar, court cases, shootings, etc. Name a rapper that honestly been thru more than him? Bruh done been robbed, shot up, locked up, shot the police, cursed paparazzo out, convicted of rape, momma on dope amongst other things. Not bragging but what’s studio bout that? On the flip tho the brother still was an eloquent speaker when he wanted to be. Dude was honestly gifted, you know how over time you tend to forget certain lyrics in songs? How many of 2pacs do you remember?

      • HipHop1980

        Tupac Was Gay & Fake watch these 2 Videos on y.o.u.t.u.b.e



      • HipHop1980

        Tupac had no criminal record before he started rapping. SO all that shooting cops,court cases etc… is irrelevant. Tupac was a good school kid who loved dancing and acting growing up. Chuck d and public enemy are positive MC’s who never backed down. Who fought for black politics. Tupac was a studio gangsta who contradicted himself in every song. One minute he’s malcolm X the next he’s a Thug who sells drugs and kills people etc… Tupac was a good rapper. But he was not a MC!!!!!

  6. Matt Martinez

    remember the FBI was present watching the murders take place they also hesitate towards any uncovering for wut they were watching, maybe the raising in funds is to actually put investigations to end on all sides which should of happened the minute the violent attacks happened…remember LA Police Officer Involved Wit Walking Up And Blasting Biggie!! Military clothed persons blasting Pac and his crew…didnt Suge save Pac from jail? Didnt Bad Boy somehow get involved wit killing Randy Walker a.k.a. Big Stretch of Grand Imperial’s “The Live Squad”? Only Majesty still alive? WHY DO U FAGS OPERATE LIKE THIS??!! Im in self-defense u got gatz? i got backs to jack, lock up on the sacks, u r a fag holdin a gat…u definitely need to realize u got jealous of yurself not climbing to the top…consult wit me i kno that Pac and Biggie’s families r being protected now but then again wut do we do to make this happen again? idk discontinue TOY SOLDIERS!!! Sky’s The Limit…R.I.P. Tupac and Chris as well as the family already where u r too still got my memories of yall keep it thuggin eternal. -Matt

    • KingsCountyCrooklyn

      nah Suge killed both of them or should I say took part in planning the deaths of these two individuals.

      • Karin

        That theory is absolutely nutts. It would have been the worst plan ever. 1) Suge put himself in the line of fire 2) why come up with a plan that involves committing a second murder so he increases the risk of getting caught.

        2pac and Suge were tight. Read some of 2pac’s last interviews where he explains that he would continue doing business with Suge even after he had left Death Row. 2pac had loyalty for Death Row and Suge.

  7. Oknas

    Vanilla Ice” i needed to wear a diaper that day” LOL

    The way he said it was funny, damn that must have been fucked up

  8. Oknas

    I think pac is dead but with all the enemies he had through family ties and real street gangstas and artist, i can see why he would contemplate faking his death. 2 much bullshit 2 deal with, some he caused and some out of his control.

  9. Oknas

    “I believe that no black person would ever shoot me” – 2pac

    Pac was naive or ignorant with that statement, if a black man killed malcolm(which pac knew) than why would pac think hes any different?
    Once power, greed and money is involved, any one can get it, shit is fucked up.

  10. RichFromBX

    there is the very real chance that Pac picked the wrong dude to stomp out and ended up getting shot like any other cat from the block would.

    Pac was Pac and all but it didn’t give him a free pass to go whipping people’s asses at will with no recourse.

    • ybe87

      Exactly & the fact that it happened just 2 hours after that is evident. Now had it happened the next day maybe the conspiracies could be more believable, but no. This was 2 hours later, Let’s be reasonable. Orlando Anderson really did gang bang. It wasn’t a facade..

      • RichFromBX

        you know there are cats out there thinking that Orlando Anderson was paid by the government to start a fight with Pac, get his assed whipped and this way the government could kill Pac and it would all look like gang banger sh!t or that the government was watching Pac so closely that when they saw him stomp this dude out it became the perfect opportunity to kill Pac that night because it would look like it was over street sh!t.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        orlando anderson for sure killed 2pac, just like how he killed 2 more piru’s who killed him. that guy has atleast 4 confirmed bodies…coz was already suspected of murder before killing tupac

  11. bisolabliss

    A 10-point summation of both murders…

    1. At the height of their beef, Bad Boy offered a bounty (10k…15k) for anyone that could get their hands on a Death Row chain. A member of the Death Row camp spotting the sort after chain was caught slipping and disposed of his chain by Orlando ‘Babylane’ Anderson and his posse.

    2. Babylane was later spotted at the MGM, Las Vegas on the night of the Tyson fight by a member of Death Row entourage and he went to get Pac, who in hindsight foolishly but understandably – he did escalate the simmering Death Row Vs Bad Boy beef – laid hands on Babylane along with Suge and others.

    3. Babylane dusted himself off, refused to press charges and went looking for his Uncle, the OG Southside Crip shot-caller named Duane Keith ‘Keefe D’ Davis.

    What happened next is very Important because it would lay the groundwork for the rumours that followed after Bigg’s death that Big got popped cuz Puff didn’t honour his agreement with Keefe D while highlighting Puff’s quick departure from L.A. without waiting for the cops – effectively leaving a murder crime scene while being a major witness because he feared he could be next in line – as corroborating evidence of this claim.

    • bisolabliss

      4. Keefe D and his cousin, Babylane, wanted to redress the disrespect and saw an opportunity/decided to take up the proposal to get paid while doing it – enters Puff Daddy. A point of note, the White CaDillac used on that faithful night in September ’96 belonged to none other than Keefe D.

      5. Let me back up a little and introduce Eric ‘Von Zip’ Martin who died August 27, 2012 but before his death, he was for all intent and purposes the reason to fear Puff. He was Puff’s Uncle and importantly, he was an OG’s OG from Harlem. Zip is Biggie’s son godfather and the one who introduced Puff to Keefe D. That introduction basically set up a deal whereby the Crips guarded the Bad Boy crew whenever they ventured out West.

      6. A million dollars was the bounty on Suge and Pac’s head and while the discussion had been on-going for a bit, the release of ‘Hit ’em up’ filled with vile wordings, death threats and whatnot made the hit all the more imperative. As fate would have it, 2Pac accelerated events when he and his cohorts stomped out Orlando.

      7. Puff renegaded and didn’t pay for the hit because
      (a) he didn’t give the final say so, he argued they went ahead with the killing for their own personal reasons
      (b) Suge is still alive and breathing

      • bisolabliss

        8. Suge had always wanted to take his pound of flesh – hit Puff himself or hit him where it hurts the most – ever since his friend/bodyguard Jai Hassan-Jamal ‘Big Jake’ Robles was shot and killed in Atlanta by Jason Brown – a childhood friend of Puffs and a member of his entourage – not Anthony ‘Wolf’ Jones, Puff’s full-time personal bodyguard as widely believed.

        Ex-Bad Boy, Mark Curry, in his book ‘Dancing with the Devil – How Puff Burned the Bad Boys of Hip-Hop’ wrote that
        (a) most of the witnesses interviewed on the night of Big Jake’s shooting mistakenly identified Anthony ‘Wolf’ Jones as the shooter.
        (b) Jason, Wolf and Puff were childhood friends and as teenagers were part of a group called the Valley Mob.

        9. Suge was behind bars in March but when he learnt Bad Boy were attending the Soul Train awards in L.A., he set about using off-duty LAPD officers that work as security for Death Row to track Puff’s and Biggie’s movements. These officers had the advantage of equipment and training…all that was left was to point the gun man in the right direction.

        10. That single move to involve off-duty LAPD officers in the hit – aside from offering a logistical advantage – is what has stagnated Bigg’s murder investigation to date. The LAPD would rather have a cold case on its plate than open itself up to ridicule and lawsuits.

        The streets talk, from Las Vegas, to Los Angeles, to Atlanta and New York – this torrid affair span 4 cities – and this is what the streets had to say on the two murders.

      • scullyson

        Seems like just yesterday when all this sh*t went down. smh

      • Vinsanity

        I agree 100%. It was a War between the Crips and Bloods. Orlandos unc had the safe house in vegas too.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      and Suge arranged for that guy to be there, that’s why he begged Pac to come from NY and attend the Tyson fight with him – knowing Pac would react that way when seeing this guy – making smoke in seeing the real reason he was killed

  12. water_ur_seeds

    How many of these type of documentaries are they gonna release?

    I used to get every Pac documentary on VHS and book when I was a kid, before the internet and Youtube haha but now it seems everyone is trying to make a dollar off the situation…

    RIP Pac & Yak!


    Suge had a hand in killin’ PAC & BIG for his own POWER, EGO & GREED! Pac was gonna leave his janky azz & get his OWN label situation started, & BIGGIE was murdered to ‘cover up’ his involvement, to look like a silly ‘West vs East’ game……
    God knows, gonna have to PAY for his evil actions!

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      your right – the losses Suge received when Dre, then Snoop contracts were up and left – taught Suge to do that to Tupac before his was up
