This year, Tupac Shakur, the American rapper with more than 75 million albums sold, highest since the status of myth, would have turned 40. His death was always wrapped in steams of mystery, although many suspected P. Diddy as the mind behind the murder. Now, after 15 years of his passing, an ex cop of the LAPD published a book in which he reveals the truth behind Tupac Shakur’s murder. According to the ex detective, Greg Kading, his superiors covered up the murders that changed the course of music in the 90’s.
The author of the just-released book Murder Rap: The Untold Story of the Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Investigations claims that the police holds tapes and documents of important testimonies in the two cases of murder: Tupac Shakur’s and Notorious BIG’s. He says that among this evidence, the most important statement is that of Keffe D, an assassin who was in the car from which Shakur was shut. It seems that this gang member was paid $1 million dollars by no other than P. Diddy alias Sean Combs to kill the young and successful rapper. Kading quotes Davis saying “[Combs] took me downstairs and he’s like, ‘Man, I want to get rid of them dudes.’ … I was like, ‘We’ll wipe their ass out, quick. It’s nothing.’”
Keffe gives details about the night of the murder too, saying that his nephew, the boy beaten by Tupac in that very same night, was the one who pulled the trigger. “If Tupac had been on my side of the car, I would have been the one who shut him,” Keffe said.
Of course, this isn’t the first time that Didd’s been accused of Tupac’s murder. Eight years ago, Kirk Burrowes, ex-president of Bad Boy Entertainment, accused him of this crime. Nobody believed him at that moment because it was no evidence to prove it. As for these new accusations, Diddy, the ringmaster of Bad Boy Entertainment, Death Row Records’ rival at that time, says to LA Weekly that the “story is pure fiction” and that Keffe is not a reliable witness as he would say anything as long as he gets time off his sentence.
And Keffe didn’t stop here. He also spoke about Notorious BIG assassination that came soon after Tupac’s death. According to him and to the author of the book, Suge Knight, who survived the shootings with a bullet wound to the head on the night Tupac was murdered, ordered the killing of BIG, P. Diddy’s best friend in order to revenge Shakur. And one of the women with whom Knight had a baby also made a statement, saying the same thing. The woman, whose name was changed to protect her identity, said that Knight gave her money to hire Wardell “Poochie” Fouse to do the killing.
It remains to be seen whether the subject of this book is true or not but a thing remains certain: the circumstances of Shakur’s death can no longer remain unclear.
