According to attorney Perry R. Sanders, Jr. -- who represents the rapper's mother Voletta Wallace and the estate --  the family is "greatly pleased with any advancement" of the murder case -- but they don't want to get too involved. 

Sanders explains the family wants to "make certain [they] don't interfere in the investigation" ... adding, "Their number one concern has always been the resolution of the criminal investigation."

B.I.G. -- real name Christopher Wallace -- was gunned down in L.A. back in 1997 ... following the shooting death of rival rapper Tupac Shakur.

There's been talk for years that Suge was involved. So my guess is that since in recent years, he's lost his 'juice' in the industry, lost a lot of his posessions, has been locked up, and publicly knocked out by a guy who hasn't turned up dead yet, I'm gonna guess that people are fearing him less, and are gonna start talking about what they know. And good for them.

Who the f*ck cares? These dumb@ss rappers think they have to live the thug life, and that it's a badge of honor to be shot or to be locked up. They're ALL a joke, and their music sucks, too. Especially Kanye's. Piss on all of them.

They were both killed by the ILLUMINATI ..they intelligently framed both rappers death into each other. cause tupac refused to joined them and BIG paid the price for being pacs number one enemy.wonder why tupacs death was never investigated.. after all these years their killers were never found. Nice framework from the so called ILLUMINATIS.
