On June 8, former Nation of Islam member, Hill, contacted HipHopDX and confessed to being handed a semi-automatic handgun that was allegedly used in the shooting of B.I.G. on March, 1997.

According to a reported email exchange between Hills, 41, and HipHopDX, via CorrLinks, in mid-May 1997 Western Regional Minister from the Nation of Islam, Tony Muhammad, with the approval of Supreme Captain of the Southern Region, Abdul Sharrieff Muhammad, via Account Executive Brother Melvin Muhammad, ordered Hill to pick up Dawoud Muhammad from the Greyhound Bus Station in downtown Atlanta. Dawoud's name was kept from Hill till Dawoud introduced himself as such when meeting.

"[Dawoud Muhammad] stated to me that he was on the run for the murder [of The Notorious B.I.G.]," Hill told HipHopDx. "He disclosed that he was the shooter of The Notorious B.I.G. because he [Dawoud] was a former Blood gang member and was paid to do so."

As he states in his upcoming e-book, "Diary of an Ex-Terrorist" (July 15), Dawoud handed Hill a wrapped up semi-automatic "that could have been a .9 millimeter or a .40 caliber," without hesitation. In "Diary of an Ex-Terrorist," Hills includes quotes from Dawoud in which he brags about getting paid "twenty-five 'g's'" for the murder.

Hill was then instructed by Melvin Muhammad to deliver the "property" to Emile Muhammad, the personal driver of Minister Louis Farrakhan, in Louisville, Kentucky. The gun was then taken to it's "final destination within the headquarters of the Nation of Islam," according to HipHopDX. "I doubt if Minister Farrakhan knew anything… he would have been insulated from that," Hill wrote.

Hill claims he disclosed all of this information with Assistant U.S. Attorney Nancy DePodesta and the F.B.I's Domestic Terrorism Unit on October, 2010. HipHopDX could not locate any published reports connecting the Nation of Islam with the murder of of B.I.G. Hill also couldn't confirm with "absolute certainty" that Amir Muhammad, suspected gunman in the East Coast rapper's death, was the man who went by the name, Dawould.

Hills is currently serving a sentence in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in downtown Chicago for Conspiracy to Defraud the United Stated and Identity Theft, according to HipHopDX. He is to be released on Dec. 26, 2016.
