L.A. Times Article Claim Diddy, B.I.G., Henchman Involved In Tupac Shooting

Posted By on March 17, 2008

The L.A. Times has released an article by Chuck Philips that implicates Sean "Diddy" Combs and Christopher "The Notorious B.I.G." Wallace in the shooting of Tupac Shakur at Quad Studios in 1994 in Manhattan. When he was alive, 2Pac orriginally accused Diddy and BIG of setting him up, and now the reporter is claiming to have evidence to support the claim. Philips says while he was researching for the article he found testimony made by an FBI informant in 2002 that made him later speak to the informant plus get corrobaration with other sources. The informant testified that 2 Pac was ambushed at the studio after his rejection of an offer to sign to Bad Boy Records, which apparently pissed off Diddy and his associate James Sabatino and Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond (Game's manager, recently in the news for having his son attacked by associates of Young Buck). Sabatino, whose father was a member of the Colombo mafia family, stated that Pac "had to be dealt with." Tupac was shot 5 times in the incident but the informant says that Diddy and BIG thought he would only be beat up and robbed. Philips says that he reached out to the three men who ambushed Tupac, who are all in prison on other charges, one of which denied the claims, but the other two admitted the two were involved. One of the attackers even confirmed to Philips that he was contacted by Henchmen and offered to produce the chain he took from Tupac during the robbery. The L.A. Times article also states that the federal investigation into the incident is still ongoing.
