Milli Vanilli Syndrome - New Kids On The Block
After Milli Vanilli were exposed as frauds in 1990 tabloids began to dig around to find out who else had fallen prey to Milli Vanilli Syndrome. All lipsyncing accusations fell into the laps of the New Kids after a disgruntled ex-employee accused the group of lip syncing at their concerts. Proctor appeared on the Arsenio Hall show to tell his side of the story. That then manager Maurice Starr was some sort of a musical wizzard and he could imulate any of the New Kids's voices. The New Kids appeared on the Arsenio Hall show a week afterwards to refute the accusations that they lip synced at their concerts by performing live.

Autopsy Report Release Controversy - Notorious B.I.G.
An attorney for the family of Notorious B.I.G. said recently it's "ridiculous" that LAPD have not arrested anyone for the rapper's 1997 killing, which has returned to the spotlight after coroner's officials released a long-sealed autopsy report. The report revealed that injuries caused by a single bullet killed the rapper, whose real name was Christopher Wallace. Wallace, during a drive-by shooting in 1997, was hit by 4 bullets after leaving a music industry event. One bullet hit his heart, left lung, and colon, causing his death, the 23 page report states. The attorney, Perry Sanders criticized police for not closing one of LA's highest profile unsolved murders, especially since he had been told that police knew who was responsible. Police spokesman Richard French declined to comment, saying Wallace's killing was still an open investigation. Most believe it was the East Coast-West Coast rap rivalry turned deadly in the 1990s. Wallace's killing came months after Tupac Shakur was was gunned down in Las Vegas.
