Family of Notorious B.I.G. Says Witness Lied

Attorneys representing the estate of slain rapper Notorious B.I.G. filed a motion on Monday claiming that a witness and former prison inmate was lying when he recanted his testimony. The family of the Notorious B.I.G., whose real name was Christopher Wallace, is requesting access to phone and prison visitation logs for former Los Angeles-based R&B artist, Waymond Anderson. Anderson is currently serving a life sentence for his involvement in a separate incident.

In an August 20 deposition, Anderson said that he was bribed by the family and attorneys of the deceased rapper in order to help the estate obtain a settlement. The inmate claims that he lied about former cops David Mack and Rafael Perez’s alleged involvement in Wallace’s 1997 murder. Mack and Perez are currently serving time for unrelated charges.

The estate’s latest motion accuses Anderson of recanting his earlier testimony to “negatively affect public sentiment and the jury pool.”
