Ice-T is set to take his television detective skills and apply them in real life next month.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the legendary West Coast rapper is teaming up with investigative journalist Soledad O’Brien for a new FOX special, Who Shot Biggie & Tupac? on September 24th.

The report says the two will explore the unsolved murders of the two rap icons, nearly 20 years after the unforgettable events transpired, and will “lead the investigation that reveals new details and never-before-heard accounts surrounding the deaths of the hip-hop legends.”

The special will feature interviews with former private investigators, police officers, informants and hip-hop insiders, including Doug E Fresh, Funkmaster Flex and former Death Row Records executive Suge Knight. For the first time ever, the best friends of Tupac and Biggie — Lil’ Cease and E.D.I. Mean — will reunite on camera to talk about the friendship between the two rappers, their untimely deaths and the fallout. Additionally, an exclusive, never-before-released audio recording of Biggie talking about the shooting of Tupac will be unveiled.

THR also reports that “another Tupac-Biggie project is in the works at USA Network: Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.” which will dive deep into “the dual police investigations into the suspicious murders.”

I’ll definitely be tuned in, despite my disdain for anything “FOX” Faux and Rupert Murdoch related, although I’d much rather see this pop up on a network like CNN.
