Faith Evans on Biggie’s Death: ‘We Have An Idea What Went On’

R&B singer Faith Evans is speaking on her former husband Notorious B.I.G’s untimely murder, saying the family kind of knows what happen. The Hip Hop MC, real name Christopher Wallace, was gunned down in Los Angeles in March, 1997. An investigation was launched immediately after the fatal shooting but the case remains unsolved. “That’s kinda why we put the case on hold; until [the police] can prove that they’re actually pursuing it,” says Evans tells UK’s Voice. “We don’t know who pulled the trigger but we have an idea what went on. It’s not something I would speak on because it’s still a pending case, so that wouldn’t be smart at all. But we have an idea, though we don’t know if it will ever be solved in the judicial system.” Various conspiracy theories have linked his death to the East Coast/West Coast rap rivalry involving former Death Row Records mogul Marion ‘Suge’ Knight and his top artist Tupac Shakur, who was shot and killed less than a year before Biggie’s tragedy (96). For now Faith says Biggie’s memories will live through their son Christopher ‘CJ’ Wallace Jr., who is now 14-years old. She states, “It’s hard not to think of B.I.G when I look at my son every day. And you know, there’s still so much to get your head around; we still have this [murder] case. But I believe God puts us in places we need to be in order to get where we have to go. So I’m really glad to have been a part of his life.” Source
