SOHH Whatcha Think: So When Will Big L & Jam Master Jay's Murderers Confess? [Click Here & Speak]
Wednesday, Jul 6, 2011 12:24AM
The amount of worry surrounding my mind is beginning to build at a pretty fast rate when I realize within the past four weeks, we have had two "huge" confessions related to two of the most infamous late rappers, Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. Coincidence?

Let's be honest, the fact these two big confessions came weeks apart from one another has to either be the workings of the actual websites or purely an act of mystery. Dexter Isaac admits he shot (but did not kill) Pac in 1994, which can be argued led to the West Coast/East Coast beef war ultimately resulting in two of rap's biggest heavy weights eventually being murdered. Then, you have Clayton Hill admit he knew who killed B.I.G. because of his involvement in concealing the actual murder weapon? Oh, did I happen to mention both men are felons and locked up?
"I want to apologize to his family [Tupac Shakur] and for the mistake I did for that sucker [Jimmy Henchman]," Dexter Isaac told AllHipHop.com from prison. "I am trying to clean it up to give [Tupac and Biggie's] mothers some closure." Isaac said he was comfortable going on record relating to the robbery and shooting, since the statute of limitations had expired. Legally, no one can be prosecuted for the assault at this time. Isaac was a lifelong friend of Jimmy Henchman, who helped the former mogul set up his first company, Henchman Entertainment, in 1989. (All Hip Hop)
Former Nation of Islam member, and currently incarcerated federal felon, Clayton Hill has confessed to his role as an accessory after the fact to the murder of The Notorious B.I.G. After first contacting HipHopDX on June 8th, Hill disclosed to DXthat in October of 2010 he met with Assistant U.S. Attorney Nancy DePodesta and two agents with the F.B.I.'s Domestic Terrorism Unit and revealed that in May of 1997, while acting under orders as an official with Muhammad Mosque #15 in Atlanta, Georgia, he took possession of a semi-automatic handgun from a fellow N.O.I. member from Los Angeles, California who introduced himself as Dawoud Muhammad.

My fear now, as a music journalist, is what will be next? Will SOHH get an anonymous letter revealing the person(s) responsible for killing Big L? Or what about a collect call from someone with information about Jam Master Jay's fatal shooting? Freekey Tah?
I almost feel like some site or publication will up the ante by looking into the deaths of music icons who died from medical complications. From Eazy-E to Big Pun to Guru. Maybe some extreme investigating to reveal a few different conspiracy theories.
Who knows, maybe I am blowing this completely out of proportion, right? What has been said now is just a strong accusation at best, right? Just browse Amazon and you will find countless documentaries on B.I.G. and Pac with footage and interviews from jailed convicts swearing the know the truth. I just hope we do not look back and remember this time period as "The Summer of the Weak Confessions" and nothing further develops. Until we have a trial and hard evidence, should we even take this seriously?
