This Sunday July 8, VH1 Emmy-nominated series Behind the Music will premiere its episode on one of the greatest Hip-Hop artists of all time, The Notorious B.I.G.. The episode will include interviews with Sean 'Puffy' Combs, Faith Evans, Voletta Wallace, Russell Simmons, Mister Cee and an exclusive first time television interview with Russell Poole, the former LAPD officer who was investigating Biggie's murder. The episode will look at Biggie's life growing up in Brooklyn, his rise to rap stardom to his tragic death in Los Angeles.

"Clearly, the department covered this whole thing up, because to reveal that LAPD officers were involved in the killing of a superstar ... it wouldn't look good for the Los Angeles department," Russell Poole said in the episode regarding his investigation.

For fans who miss the Sunday night premiere at 9pm EST, the show will also air on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. Check your local listings.
