On the 14th anniversary of Christopher Wallace‘s (better known as Notorious B.I.G.)death, Lil Kim went on Power 93.5 and revealed that she believes the United States government had something to do with Biggie’s death.

Kim told the radio host that the conspiracy theory runs deeper than most people believe. “I always felt like Biggie and Tupac’s deaths was bigger than how they made it to be,” she told the Power 95.3 DJ. “It’s bigger than Suge Knight being involved, I think it’s even over his head. Them two were very powerful guys; they both could’ve ran for mayor just like Arnold Schwarzenegger and probably won. I think the government is looking at it like, ‘we cannot have these two hood dudes with this much power, running for mayor or something like that, and winning,’ because they feel like they would have lost control.”

Fans and critics alike are baffled by hip-hop homicides, and theories have been swirling since both Biggie and Tupac were killed. No one really knows who killed these two legendary rappers, but new details came out on the investigation of Biggie’s death stating that new evidence has linked two LAPD officers affiliated with Suge Knight to be partly responsible for Biggie’s untimely death.

Many people believe that Tupac Shakur, who was gunned down in Las Vegas 1996, is still alive. This is probably one of the most popular hip-hop conspiracy theories. His posthumous album “The Don Killuminati: 7 Day Theory” and many other albums after his death only helped fuel the theory, because Tupac rapped about the day he’d return to rule the rap world once again. It’s hard to imagine 15 years later that people believe Tupac is still alive, but conspiracy theories are fun to think about.
