TV network Fox wants justice or at least ratings for the deaths of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. The channel is set to launch a two-hour investigative special on hip-hop’s biggest unsolved murders.
According to new reports, “Who Shot Biggie & Tupac?” will air September 24 and dig into the rap icons’ untimely slayings.
The special will feature interviews with former private investigators, police officers, informants and hip-hop insiders, including Doug E Fresh, Funkmaster Flex and former Death Row Records executive Suge Knight. For the first time ever, the best friends of Tupac and Biggie, Lil’ Cease and E.D.I. Mean, will reunite on camera to talk about the friendship between the two rappers, their untimely deaths and the East Coast/West Coast fallout. Additionally, an exclusive, never-before-released audio recording of Biggie talking about the shooting of Tupac will be unveiled. (TV Guide)
