The estate of the Notorious B.I.G. has released a second statement, which they alleged represents “100% Corroboration” of the rapper’s whereabouts on the night of the Tupac Shakur shooting that eventually lead to his death. The rapper was reportedly in the studio recording “Nasty Boy,” a song that features Lil’ Kim, during the day and watching the Tyson fight at home in New Jersey in the evening. Initial reports state that Wayn Barrow was in the studio with the Brooklyn-bred rapper. He also claims to have a studio slip that included the printed date of the studio session and the exact song he was recording.
The statement is below in its entirely:
Official comments from two major entertainment figures prove that Christopher (the Notorious B.I.G.) Wallace was not in Las Vegas on the night of the murder of Tupac Shakur as falsely reported by the Los Angeles Times.
The inflammatory Los Angeles Times story which ran this past Friday is being refuted with 100% proof of Christopher Wallace’s whereabouts, putting him in a New York City recording studio session and then at his home in New Jersey on September 7, 1996.
The Los Angeles Times alleged that Christopher (the Notorious B.I.G.) Wallace was in Las Vegas at the time of Tupac Shakur’s murder and fingers Christopher as planning, paying and providing the weapon for the hit in Las Vegas that evening.
Contrary to this false report, several witnesses have come forward to say that they were with the Notorious B.I.G. in New York and at his home in New Jersey.
Entertainment manager Wayne Barrow confirms that he was with Christopher on September 7, 1996 in a New York studio recording some vocal tracks. “You can quote me that I was with him. No way was he in Vegas,” says Mr. Barrow.
In addition, fellow rapper, Lil’ Cease of Junior M.A.F.I.A., said “After his recording session, I was with him later on in his crib in Teaneck watching the championship boxing match between Mike Tyson and Bruce Seldon at the MGM Grand Hotel. He was with me all the time. The Los Angeles Times got it all wrong.”
Session reports from the studio, found in files confirms his presence in the studio. A tape of Christopher from that session along with the paper work will put to rest any theory of him being in Las Vegas on that fateful night.
