Whether you were a 2-year-old kid or a 80-year-old grandma at the time, everyone knows about the death of rapper Tupac Shakur. The person who fatally shot Tupac in a drive-by in Las Vegas has been speculated about for 20 years, but now one former LAPD officer says rapper Sean Combs (aka Puff Daddy, aka P. Diddy, aka Diddy) was behind the murder.

Back in the ’90s, there was a huge feud between East coast and West coast rappers – both Tupac from Los Angeles and Combs from New York were involved.

In a documentary about the killings called Murder Rap, retired LAPD detective Greg Kading, who once led a special task force that investigated the rappers’ deaths, claims that Combs hired Crips gang member Duane Keith “Keffe D” Davis to kill Shakur and his manager, Marion Hugh “Suge” Knight, for $1 million. He claims that on the night of September 7, 1996, Keffe D’s nephew, Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, pulled the trigger that killed 25-year-old Tupac.

Biggie Smalls – a close friend of Combs – was shot dead six months later in a revenge killing. Detective Kading says Suge Knight hired a Bloods gang member to kill Biggie Smalls for a mere $13,000.

Kading says that in a 2008 interview, he was able to “trap” Keffe D into confessing to avoid a harsher sentence for another crime.

Murder Rap is available on iTunes now, but if you hold out until the spring, the documentary will be on Netflix.
