Other conspiracy theorists believe that the rapper formerly known as Puff Daddy (now it's usually just Diddy) is actually the mastermind behind Biggie’s murder. The theory is that after seeing how well Tupac’s posthumous album did for Death Row Records, Puff Daddy wanted sales to skyrocket for Biggie’s upcoming album, ironically named “Life After Death.” So he hired gang members to shoot Biggie. Diddy's former bodygaurd believes the allegations.
According to a retired LAPD detective, Biggie's mother Voletta Wallce believes that Puff Daddy and Suge Knight are repsonsible for her son's murder. Voletta Wallace told The Daily Mail that the murder of her son "hurts me every single day" and that she has "a very good idea" about who killed him.
"They’ve done their investigation, but they just refuse to move forward," she said. "I don’t know why they haven’t arrested who was involved. It seems to me that it’s one giant conspiracy, and someone is definitely being protected somewhere down the line."
