DJ Quik spoke with HipHopDX about speculations, following the murder of The Notorious B.I.G., that he had been involved.

“When they came to my accountant’s [home] to come get me, I ended up calling my lawyer and I told him what was going on,” continued Quik regarding his ordeal as murder suspect. “So he called the Parker Center and arranged for me to go up there and talk to ‘em, instead of them gafflin’ me up and making a scene. So I went down there and told ‘em everything I knew, everything I saw, the whole s***. And after I did that the burden was off. ‘Cause it was rumors in the street that I did that s***. How am I gonna kill Biggie Smalls when I like him? Who does that?!”

The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) has released their files from their investigation into the murder of The Notorious B.I.G. from 1997 through 2005.

According to reports by ABC News, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Daily News and the Associated Press, little is revealed in the heavily redacted files. The most noteworthy point seems to be related to the bullets that were used in his murder. They were were "very rare" Gekko 9 mm ammunition and the Daily News says that, according to the files, the FBI believed they found those type of bullets in the garage of David Mack, a former LAPD officer who has been regularly linked to the murder.
