Michael Douglas Carlin, author of “Tupac 187,” urges LAPD to reopen murder cases for Biggie and Tupac

In many ways, the 1990s was the greatest period in hip hop history. Artists from all areas were having success, rappers were becoming moguls, and hip hop went mainstream. Two rappers rose to the top of the hip hop world during this period, Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.

Initially friends, Tupac and B.I.G. soon became rivals. While Biggie never dissed Tupac, Tupac went at him every chance he got. Tupac felt Biggie was behind him getting shot in 1994, although it was later revealed to be Jimmy Henchman.

Michael Douglas Carlin wrote the book, Tupac 187, which is about the deaths of Tupac and Biggie. His book has done well since its release, as it covers one of the most-discussed topic in hip hop. Now, Michael Douglas Carlin is urging the LAPD to reopen the cast, as he feels as if there is more to the story.
