The lives and deaths of the music stars have long fascinated fans and inspired endless speculation and conspiracy theories. Wallace met a similar fate less than a year later, when he was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. Many have also linked the two murders because of the similarities of the incidents but no one has ever solved the mystery of their murders. Among them are allegations that Suge and hip hop mogul P Diddy were responsible for ordering Tupac and Biggie's deaths in the midst of a volatile east coast versus west coast feud. Nick Broomfield's 2002 documentary "Biggie & Tupac" also explored their deaths and legacies. "Unsolved" will be the latest true crime series following the leads of HBO's "The Jinx", NBC's "Law and Order: True Crime and the recently announce "American Crime Story" Season 3".
