Usually when a celebrity is killed, there is a massive investigation and people reveal anything and everything they know about the situation.

In the world of Hip-Hop, police don’t seem to concerned and the “no snitching” rule usually rises up amongst the public when it comes to speaking to authorities.

New information is revealed all the time about unsolved Hip-Hop murders, but it is unlikely anyone will ever be brought to justice for these deaths.

Below is a list of the top 5 unsolved Hip-Hop murders.

5. Soulja Slim

James Tapp, Jr., who performed under the name of Soulja Slim got his start with Master P’s No Limit Records. Before signing onto No Limit, Slim worked with B.G. from the Hot Boys and later Juvenile, with whom he recorded the number one single, “Slow Motion.”

Soulja Slim would wind up being killed in New Orleans by gunfire to the face and chest. A 22-year-old man would be charged with Soulja Slim’s murder only to be released and then murdered himself.

4. Big L

Big L, real name Lamont Coleman, was 25 years old when he was killed in 1999.

At the time, Big L was full of promise, having the respect of both the underground and the streets. But right before Big L had a chance to blow up, he was shot and murdered in his own Harlem neighborhood on 139th St. and Lenox Avenue.

A childhood friend of Big L’s was charged, but later released. Police believe the killing may have had to do with Big L’s brother who was killed three years later.

3. Jam Master Jay

Jam Master Jay, born Jason Mizell, was the DJ for pioneering rap group, Run DMC. He was shockingly murdered in 2002 in a studio in Queens, New York. In 2007, federal prosecutors claim that notorious Queens stick-up artist, Ronald “Tenad” Washington, was an accomplice to the murder, but was never convicted and no other suspects have been named.

2. Notorious B.I.G

Notorious B.I.G also known as Christopher Wallace was killed in Los Angeles, California in 1997 after a Vibe Magazine party. The shooting sent shockwaves through the industry.

While accusations and rumors have been plentiful, no one has ever been charged with the murder.

Theories range from corrupt cops working for Death Row Records killing Wallace on the orders of Suge Knight to Crips killing Biggie in retaliation for an unpaid debt.

1. Tupac  Shakur

After surviving being shot in New York City, Tupac Shakur was fatally killed in Las Vegas after a Mike Tyson fight while driving with Death Row Records head, Suge Knight. One of the original suspects, Orlando Anderson, who was beat up by Tupac and Suge Kinight’s entourage before the killing
