Yet another inmate has come forward to claim that they were involved with a Biggie or Tupac shooting. This time it’s Clayton Hill, an inmate currently doing time at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in downtown Chicago. Hill is a former Nation of Islam member that has admitted to his role as an accessory after the fact to the murder of The Notorious B.I.G. He revealed to HipHopDX that he confessed to Assistant U.S. Attorney Nancy DePodesta and two agents with the F.B.I.’s Domestic Terrorism Unit, revealing that in May 1997  while acting under orders as an official with Muhammad Mosque #15 in Atlanta, he took possession of a semi-automatic handgun from a fellow N.O.I. member from L.A. who introduced himself as Dawoud Muhammad.  Hill wrote the following to DX:

“[Dawoud Muhammad] stated to me that he was on the run for the murder [of The Notorious B.I.G.] 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.”

“I have looked at the pics in the mag, and although I cannot say conclusively and with absolute certainty because that was 14 years ago, Amir Muhammad looks like the person who used the name Dawoud.”

He explained that Amir adopted the name Dawoud as a precaution:

“A member from L.A. wouldn’t know a member from Atlanta so you wouldn’t completely trust them. Also, consider that the N.O.I. is a paramilitary organization and all members do as instructed so if he or I were told by someone to give a false name as precaution then he would and it would be accepted without question.”

According to Hill, he was initially contacted in mid-May 1997 by Minister Tony Muhammad, the Western Regional Minister of the N.O.I., and asked to pick up someone from the Greyhound Bus Station in downtown Atlanta. After picking up the man he was told was named “Dawoud,” Hill obtained the weapon he claims he was instructed to bring back. In his book, ‘Confessions of an Ex-Terrorist’ Clayton claimed the following:

“I told [Dawoud Muhammad] I had instructions to collect some property from him. He must have been given the same instructions because he didn’t hesitate or show any signs of doubt as he bent over and removed a trash liner out of a waste can and handed it to me to hold open. He reached into the duffle bag he brought with him and pulled out a semi-automatic hand gun that could have been a .9 millimeter or a .40 caliber wrapped in a white undershirt. Carefully he placed it into the trash bag making sure his hands never touched any of the exposed parts of the gun.”

He alleges that after receiving his final instructions from Melvin Muhammad, Clayton claims he was told to take the “property” to Louisville, Kentucky. In Louisville, Hill delivered the gun to Emile Muhammad, the personal driver of Minister Louis Farrakhan. Emile Muhammad then apparently brought the gun to its final destination within the HQ of the Nation of Islam. Hill states:

“Somebody in Chicago wanted that weapon. Who wanted it? I can’t say for sure but whoever wanted it had to be high ranking.”

Basically, nothing in any of Hill’s claims can be confirmed. And I really don’t trust anyone who “confesses” to a hip hop blog from prison. Also, perfect timing publicity-wise for Hill’s upcoming E-book. Another day, another bullsh*t story about who killed Biggie.
