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.

His family might care but the rest of country could care less about him and that Toofpak clown.

Honestly, I'm an EastCoast person but I liked Tupac. I really don't care who shot either one of them. They wanted to be gangsta and that's what often happens. Neither one of them were innocent. Sorry to their Mommas.

Hanging to da lef    

Let's hope that finally, ex- LAPD chief, and now city councilman Bernie Parks and ex-assistant chief Moore get thrown in jail for covering up the whole B.I.G. murder. Moore's son, and Park's daughter where both arrested in Las Vegas for transporting for sales of cocaine....There are ties!!!! Also, the 3 Rampart scandel officers who were also directly involved!!!

I totally believe Puffy or diddy or whatever the hell he calls himself had something to do with it. Look how famous he got when he released his album after Biggie's death. Nobody gave a rat's ass about him before. He totally made a ton of cash having his so-called friend killed.
