Ice-T hosting TV special about Notorious BIG and Tupac Shakur murders

Ice-T hosting TV special about Notorious BIG and Tupac Shakur murders”

Wallace for a two-hour investigative crime special "Who Shot Biggie & Tupac", airing Sunday, Sept. 24 from 8-10 p.m. ET/PT. A dramatic series called Unsolved: The Murders of Biggie and Tupac is in the works at US, and it's based on the book Murder Rap: The Untold Story of Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations by a former LAPD officer.

The program will be anchored by actor-rapper Ice-T and journalist-documentarian Soledad O'Brien. It promises to air new details from the investigations as well as never-before-heard accounts of the murders, according to advance reports in The Hollywood Reporter.

It was on September 13, 1996 that Tupac Shakur was killed in a drive-by shooting on the Las Vegas strip.

The Fox project is the latest marking the 20th anniversary of the murders. The plot-twisting mystery surrounding their deaths, combined with allegations of police corruption, gang connections and a fierce rap rivalry, are all theories about what might have played a role in their untimely deaths - and what might have resulted in a failure to close their cases.

Rappers Lil' Cease, who was a member of Notorious B.I.G.'s rap group Junior M.A.F.I.A, and Tupac collaborator E.D.I. Mean, will reunite on camera to talk about the friendship between the two rappers, their untimely deaths and the East Coast/West Coast fallout.

The special is said to have never-before-released audio of Biggie speaking on 'Pac's murder.

The Fox special is produced by Critical Content. Tom Forman, Ice-T, Soledad O'Brien, David Metzler, Jon Beyer, Brad Bishop and Jorge Hinojosa will serve as executive producers.

The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupack Shakur were killed within six months of one another and both of their murders have gone on unsolved.
