The family of 24 year old murder victim Christopher Lawrence (aka Notorious B.I.G.) are suing the LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) on the basis that Death Row Records were involved in the killing and officers linked to the label should have known he was in danger.

"Certain persons intimately associated with Death Row Records and an affiliated street gang had consistently exhibited significant animosity toward Christopher GL Wallace and his record label and blamed [him] and his record label for the death of Tupac Shakur, a popular Death Row Record artist killed in September 1996,"the claim says (The Guardian).
