Who k!lled The Notorious B.I.G. - Complex Mag Interview
 

 
Fifteen years after Biggie's murder, retired detective Greg Kading debunks a few bogus theories and explains why the case will never officially be solved.
According to the police detective who spent three years investigating the murder of Biggie Smalls, the man pictured above—Wardell Fouse a.k.a Darnell Bolton a.k.a. “Poochie”—was the triggerman who k!lled Biggie fifteen years ago today. His fee for murdering the greatest rapper of all time? $13,000.

On March 9, 1997, Christopher Wallace, a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G., was shot to death while sitting in a Chevy Suburban outside of a hip-hop industry party in Los Angeles. Biggie’s drive-by shooting occurred just six months after his friend turned foe, 25-year-old Tupac Shakur, suffered a similar fate after a boxing match in Las Vegas. These k!llings remain the worst tragedies in hip-hop history.

Seeing the two greatest rappers of a generation cut down in their prime was bad enough. The death of two young men who were so beloved by their family, friends, and fans was worse still. Adding insult to injury, Big and Pac were both murdered on busy city streets, in view of numerous witnesses. Yet there has never been an arrest in either case and both murders remain officially unsolved to this day.

Although the police investigations in Los Angeles and Las Vegas have failed to bring the truth to light, there is no shortage of websites, documentaries, and books detailing various theories and counter-theories—ranging from rap beef and gang violence to crooked cops and government conspiracies. But the latest book to be published, murder Rap: The Untold Story of the Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur murder Investigations. by Greg Kading (second photo), is different from the rest.

Kading is neither a journalist nor a conspiracy theorist. A retired L.A.P.D. detective, he was in charge of the special task force that investigated Christopher Wallace’s murder between 2006 and 2009. After Biggie’s mother Voletta Wallace filed suit against the City of Los Angeles and the L.A.P.D.—seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in damages—the department was highly motivated to solve the case. That’s when Kading got the a.ssignment.

After his efforts led to two sworn confessions from people who said they played a part in the k!llings of Wallace and Shakur, Kading was suddenly pulled off the case. At the time, he was under investigation by L.A.P.D. Internal Affairs for allegedly making false statements on an affidavit in a separate case. However, in the end, Internal Affairs cleared Kading of any wrongdoing. Around the same time, the Wallace family’s lawsuit was dismissed.

When the 22-year veteran saw the case he built being shelved, he became so frustrated that he quit the force—but not before making copies of his evidence so that he could put all his findings into a book. His conclusions are controversial to be sure, but they are so thoroughly researched that they’re hard to ignore.

Complex caught up with Kading to talk about the results of his investigation, why no arrests have ever been made, and why he believes these cases will never be officially solved.

“Suge Knight was absolutely enraged. Not only had he been shot at, but his friend [Tupac Shakur] was k!lled next to him in the car. Suge always knew who was responsible. He looked directly into the eyes of Keefe D, who was in the shooter’s car. Keefe D was a member of the Southside Crips and a well known person to Suge. That explains why the next day this huge war broke out in Compton between Suge Knight’s gang entourage and Keefe D’s gang entourage.

“Suge Knight ended up going to jail on a probation violation, stemming from the beating of Orlando Anderson [Ed. Note—Anderson is Keefe D’s nephew, also a Southside Crip who allegedly shot Tupac.] in the MGM Grand hotel. While Suge was in jail, he conspired with his girlfriend. Suge gave her the directive to get Poochie.

Wardell ‘Poochie’ Fouse was paid to k!ll Biggie. At the time, he was a 36-year old member of the Mob Piru Bloods. According to several death Row insiders and FBI informants, Poochie was a down-for-the-cause, hardcore gang member. Confidential sources from the death Row entourage, the Mob Pirus, and [Suge’s girlfriend, identified in Kading's book by the alias "Theresa Swann"], said Poochie had done shootings for Suge in the past. Reggie Wright Jr.—who was the head of death Row security—said Suge and Poochie’s relationship was different than other members of the gang. They had a very secretive and exclusive relationship.

“[Suge’s girlfriend] and Poochie agreed to terms. He received two payments, one for $9000 and one for $4000. Poochie lay in wait outside the Petersen Automotive Museum. As soon as he became aware of where Biggie was sitting in his car, he drove up and he shot him.”

Pac was leaving death row and he owed pac like 10 million



I still think diddy paid it off because you have to be brave to risk getting k!lled
Being in the car with pac while bullets flying plus Orlando uncle admitted diddy paid them




He got big k!lled to revenge pac because everybody was saying diddy set it up

Puff was plottin with the crips to get Pac and Suge.. at that time Puff was pretty scared for his life cause he was gettin exorted by n*ggas in NY and he thought Suge wanted to k!ll him... they wanted to k!ll both in LA, but when death Row beat the sh*t outta Orlando in Vegas, they decided that was the time...

Biggie was k!lled by Suge orders for vendetta... he had cops in death Row payroll and got them to do the job... David Mack got that Fruit of Islam n*gga to shoot

that's it

theres so many different stories to that sh*t its crazy! Its best to just say RIP and keep it moving at this point. I always felt though that in my neighborhood at the time people were more sad over Pac being dead than anything. I mean ma'fuhkas were PISSED over that sh*t. Not to say that noone cared about Biggie but man, I remember one of my homeboys came to my crib crying like a mug, like, "yo son Pac is dead! man what the fuhk? Pac is dead!" I'll never forget that sh*t.

Word. I don't think the younger n*ggas (hip hop fans) will ever understand the impact of that man's music and just his character as a whole. But also the impact of both those brothas getting k!lled. I mean, I grew up we was getting shot stabbed up all the time, but in them days with hip hop it was like, so and so dissed somebody, "oh sh*t!" Next week all is well. Then Pac got k!lled and noone really thought it had sh*t to do with Big and them cause we were all under the impression that Big was pu$$. Cause he never responded to dude like that. Then Big got mirked and it we were all like, "damn! this sh*t is just music man. why?" smh
