Slate’s “Slow Burn” podcast will be tackling two of music’s biggest murder mysteries.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Season 3 of the series is slated to be released in the fall will examine the deaths of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.

Slate announced that they “expect to find more startling connections to the past and more clues to the present.” The series previously examined the Watergate scandal with Season 1 and Bill Clinton’s impeachment case in Season 2.

ESPN reporter Joel Anderson is set to host the new season.

“The first two seasons of Slow Burn brought fascinating fresh perspectives to these well-known historic moments, and I’m excited for the opportunity to do the same with this story,” Anderson said in a statement. “It’s almost surreal to have this chance to dig more deeply into the lives of the artists and people who influenced my generation and the music that was the soundtrack of much of my own life.”

Biggie was shot and killed in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997.

Tupac was shot and killed in Las Vegas on September 13, 1996.
