There is a documentary about their deaths that raises some interesting questions. It is called "Biggie & Tupac", check it out if you're
interested. It is a little slow though. It talks about how the FBI was following Biggie long before he was killed and even on the night he was
murdered. It does bring up some odd occurences. Back when the Black Panther Party was at it's peak, there became a rift between the East and West
coast, some believe govt involvement led to that. Some 30 years later, a schizm forms within the "Rap" movement between the East vs
West(ironically, some of these rappers are sons and daughters of Black Panthers (ie Tupac)). History repeating itself or similar tactics by the
I, personally, do not think the govt had anything to do with it. It was about money and "respek", I think Suge is a good place to start pointing
the finger though.
BTW, I know that hip-hop was not really divided between the coasts, it was much more media hype than anything. A few people have beef and all of a
sudden there's a war going on.
