Clayton Hill, a former member of the Nation of Islam who is currently serving time in Chicago's Metropolitan Correctional Center on charges of Conspiracy to Defraud the United States and Identity Theft, has alleged to HipHopDX
that he once harbored a man who claimed to be on the run after murdering The Notorious B.I.G.
According to Hill, the man identified himself as Dawoud Muhammad. Hill says he was ordered by Nation of Islam officials to not only pick the man up at a bus station in Atlanta, but to secure a weapon from him. This was a semi-automatic handgun, though Hill couldn't confirm other details about it. He did say that Muhammad told him that he had received $25,000 for the shooting.
After the exchange, Hill alleges that he was told to deliver the weapon to Emile Muhammad, who the HipHopDX article labels as the official driver of Nation of Island Minister Louis Farrakhan. The gun, he says, was then brought to the organization's headquarters.
Hill was asked to look at photos of Amir Muhammad, who has previously been suspected of being the shooter. Hill could not confirm that they were one in the same, but did say that they looked similar.
"I have looked at the pics in the mag and although I cannot say conclusively and with absolute certainty because that was 14 years ago, Amir Muhammad looks like the person who used the name Dawoud."
The HipHopDX story
has further details about their efforts to research what Hill told them.
Perhaps not coincidentally, Hill will soon self-publish an ebook, "Diary of an Ex-Terrorist," which promises to talk about "the murder of a hip-hop icon and how the murderer disappeared", according to the website of Hill's Bella Media Group
. Their Twitter profile
has the release date. "Who really killed Biggie Smalls? Book release date July 15, 2011," one message reads.
At this juncture, there does not appear to be any evidence to substantiate his claims.
