Any time somebody comes to visit you in prison, that's good.

LAbyrinth: A Detective Investigates the Murders of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, the Implication of Death Row Records' Suge Knight, and the Origins of the Los Angeles Police Scandal by Randall Sullivan -- Acclaimed journalist Sullivan follows Russell Poole, a highly decorated LAPD detective who in 1997 was called to investigate a controversial cop-on-cop shooting, and eventually discovered that the officer killed was tied to Marion "Suge" Knight's notorious gangsta-rap label, Death Row Records. Poole would come to realize that a growing cadre of officers were allied not only with Death Row but with the Bloods street gang. He began to uncover evidence that some "gangsta cops" may have been involved in the murders of rap superstars Notorious B.I.G. And Tupac Shakur. Poole became lead investigator in the murder of Notorious B.I.G. His shrewd detective work pointed to crooked cops such as David Mack, who orchestrated one of the biggest bank heists in LA history. Poole found his investigation stifled by a police chief wary of doing further damage to a department sullied by the OJ trial, the Rodney King beating, and the Rampart corruption scandal -- in which dozens of officers were implicated in a conspiracy of robbery, brutality, drug dealing, and false imprisonment. Igniting a firestorm of controversy in the music industry and the LA media, the publication of Labyrinth helped prompt two lawsuits against the LAPD (one by the widow and mother of Notorious B.I.G., the other by Poole) that may bring this story completely out of the shadows.

The Murder of Biggie Smalls by Cathy Scott
The Notorious B.I.G. exploded onto the hip-hop scene with his platinum-selling album Ready to Die in 1995. The life of B.I.G. a.k.a. Biggie Smalls-born Christopher Wallace-had come a long way from the years spent in his Bed-Sty neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York where he dropped out of school at 17 to master his rapping style. It was on the street that Smalls began emceeing his original raps and was discovered by Sean "Puffy" Combs, who recognized Smalls's potential and took his gangsta image to the next level.
Within a few years he moved from the street to two successful rap albums, several million dollars in earnings, a Billboard Music Award in 1996 for Rapper of the Year, a marriage to R&B singer Faith Evans, a very public affair with L'il Kim, and hanging with Tupak Shakur, Marion "Suge" Knight, Puff Daddy, and Mary J. Blige. During his rise up the charts he had run-ins with the law ranging from assault to drugs and weapons possession. In 1994, he and Combs were publicly accused by Suge Knight and Tupac's camp of setting up the shooting of Tupac, a charge they both denied. The high life was brought to an end March 9th 1997, after Biggie attended the Soul Train Awards in L A, Smalls was gunned down in his car like Shakur had been 6 months earlier. Years after the murder continues to raise more questions than it answers.
