While filming is in full swing in Atlanta for the new Tupac biopic, All Eyez On Me, a new report is shaking up the mystery behind the hip-hop legend.
According to reports, a former police officer is now arguing that Diddy murdered Tupac Shakur in a drive-by shooting. An ex-LAPD detective is making an explosive claim that Sean Diddy Combs actually hired the killer who shot legendary rapper Tupac Shakur in 1996.
In a new documentary called Murder Rap: Inside the Biggie and Tupac Murders, retired LAPD detective Greg Kading is claiming Diddy paid to have Tupac to killed.
Kading led an LAPD task force that investigated the 1996 shooting that killed rapper and injured his manager Marion Hugh “Suge” Knight. Now he alleges that Diddy hired Duane “Keffe D” Davis, who got his nephew Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson to pull the trigger.
According to Kading’s claims, Diddy paid Keffe D $1 million to kill Tupac and Suge. Although it’s not clear what may have caused the rap-entrepreneur to want to have Tupac murdered, Diddy told LA Weekly that Kading’s discoveries were “pure fiction and completely ridiculous” after Kading published a book about his findings in 2011.
Nevertheless, Kading’s documentary alleges that Diddy is responsible for the crime.
Kading also argues that Tupac’s murder is what led to Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace being killed. Only six months after Tupac died, Sigue supposedly hired Bloods gang member Wardell “Poochie” Fouse to take out Bigge for $13,000 in retaliation.
Kading alleges that Diddy’s popularity is what caused the LAPD to not pursue any formal charges against him in the case. In addition, initial evidence led to two killers who were already dead. But, greg does not seem to agree with his fellow officers’ findings. You can watch all of this in a new documentary airing on Netflix in spring.
