Clayton Hill, the inmate, has said that Nation of Islam member Dawoud Muhammad was the hit man who shot and killed the Notorious B.I.G.

Muhammad "stated to me that he was on the run for the murder [of the Notorious B.I.G.]," Hill said in a recent interview with HipHopDX. "He disclosed that he was the shooter of the Notorious B.I.G. because he was a former Blood gang member and was paid to do so."

Furthermore, Muhammad told Hill that he made $25,000 for the shooting. The gun used in the shooting allegedly changed hands multiple times and went from Los Angeles to Atlanta to Louisville to Chicago.

The Biggie case was "reinvigorated" back in January when new information came up.
