*A new development has come to fruition regarding the murder of rapper the Notorious B.I.G. just weeks after a New York man confessed to robbing Tupac Shakur in 1994.
A new man and former member of the Nation of Islam, named Clayton Hill reportedly confessed to being an accessory to the murder, explaining he was handed the gun that was used to kill the rapper.
Hill contacted HipHopDX.com and shared his story.
Billboard reports that an email exchange between the two parties said in mid-May 1997 Western Regional Minister from the Nation of Islam, Tony Muhammad, with the approval of Supreme Captain of the Southern Region, Abdul Sharrieff Muhammad, via Account Executive Brother Melvin Muhammad, ordered Hill to pick up Dawoud Muhammad from the Greyhound Bus Station in downtown Atlanta. Dawoud’s name was kept from Hill till Dawoud introduced himself as such when meeting.
“[Dawoud Muhammad] stated to me that he was on the run for the murder [of The Notorious B.I.G.],” Hill told HipHopDx. “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 it states in his soon-to-be released e-book, “Diary of an Ex-Terroist,” Dawoud handed Hill a wrapped up semi-automatic of which the caliber was unknown. The book also reveals that Dawoud bragged about the murder and getting paid $25,000 for the assassination.
Hill further described the scenario saying he was then instructed by Melvin Muhammad to have the “property” delivered to Emile Muhammad, the personal driver of Minister Louis Farrakhan in Kentucky. The gun was then delivered to its resting place at the NOI headquarters.
“I doubt if Minister Farrakhan knew anything… he would have been insulated from that,” Hill wrote.
Finally, Hill said he disclosed all of the information divulged to the media outlet to Assistant U.S. Attorney Nancy DePodesta and the F.B.I.’s Domestic Terrorism Unit last year.
Hill is currently serving time in prison in downtown Chicago for conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and identity theft.
