Estate Of Notorious B.I.G. Releases Statement About Men Arrested In Book Theft
It seems that two so-called writers were recently arrested for stealing $888 books from a Barnes & Noble in Westport, Connecticut.
Both writers Alfred Green and Raheim Pope tried to pass of as writers for the B.I.G. estate had claimed they were producing a musical titled “Ready 2 Die,” which would focus on Notorious B.I.G. But it seems that they were trying to pull a fast one on everybody as reps from Biggie’s estate have cleared things up.
Representatives for the estate of the Notorious B.I.G. have denied reports that they are connected with a musical about the rapper’s life, after two men were arrested for theft from a bookstore on Tuesday.
Writers Alfred Green and Raheim Pope had claimed they were producing a musical titled “Ready 2 Die,” which would focus on Notorious B.I.G.
The two men initially denied the stolen booty found in a Jaguar with Georgia plates was theirs. At the station, a tip from Green lead to a cavity search of Pope, who had hidden the key to the getaway Jaguar in his rectum.
“Please note that this is an unauthorized play. Our firm has previously sent a cease and desist notice and any association with the Estate of Christopher Wallace or Notorious B.I.G. are unauthorized.”
“There is no connection or association between the Estate of Notorious B.I.G. and Alfred Green and Raheim Pope,” the rep said.
