Lil Kim: B.I.G. & 2Pac Murdered by the Government. Is She On To Something?
Could A Government Conspiracy have been responsible for the death of Francis M.H. Phenomenal?
If you were like me, yesterday your speakers were turned up a few notches with the Notorious B.I.G. heavy on the play list as we remembered his life and legacy. While I’ve made a conscious effort to refrain from commemorating his death, please look for a Highbrid Nation memorial on May 21st, his birthday. Only Hip Hop would celebrate a great man’s death than his life.
None the less its been 14 years since we lost him. Over the years everyone from VH1′s behind the scenes to watercolor gurus have theorized on who was responsible. Today we’re given yet another theory. Lil Kim believes that his death was part of some huge government conspiracy.
“I always felt like Biggie and Tupac’s deaths was bigger than how they made it to be,” Kim said during an interview on Power 95.3. “It’s bigger than Suge Knight being involved, I think it’s even over his head. Them two was very powerful guys; they both could’ve ran for mayor just like [Governor] Arnold Schwarzenegger and probably won. I think the government is looking at it like ‘we cannot have these two hood dudes with this much power, runnin’ for mayor or somethin’ like that, and winning,’ ’cause they feel like they would have lost control.
“I think it was way deeper than what people would like to believe it to be, I can’t say if this person was involved or that person was involved, no one knows. But I know it was way deeper than what people believe it to be.”
I personally would take the declartion with a grain of salt. For one it has been 14 years so for her to pull this one out of her ass is questionable. She’s overstating B.I.G. and perhaps 2Pac’s importance to the community at large. The were Hip Hop deities. They would have never have had the same appeal to lets say middle class white folks listening to classical music. Lastly, Kim is holding on to noteriety for dear life. Anything she can say controversial at this point she’s praying will grab her headlines especially as her Black Friday Mixtape is available in your grocers freezer. Yet I’m all about blaming the Government. I wouldn’t put it past them. I just don’t see the evidence of such. What do you think? SOUND OFF: Is the Government behind our fallen King?
