A Former LAPD detective has sensationally claimed Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs was behind the fatal drive-by shooting of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur.
In a new documentary, retired detective Greg Kading alleges Diddy hired Crips gang member Duane Keith ‘Keffe D’ Davis to kill Shakur and his manager Marion Hugh ‘Suge’ Knight for $1million.
Both Diddy, from New York, and Tupac, from Los Angeles, had been caught up in a bitter rivalry between East and West Coast rappers, the Huffington Post reports.
But on the night of the fatal shooting, on September 7, 1996, it was actually Keffe’s nephew Orlando ‘Baby Lane’ Anderson who shot the 25-year-old rapper dead, according to the ex-cop. Suge escaped unharmed.
The documentary, Murder Rap, features a 2008 interview with Keffe where he claims to have heard Diddy declare in a room full of Crips members he’d ‘give anything for Pac and Suge Knight’s heads’.
He goes on to say in the police interview the rapper had later approached him and offered him $1million to kill the pair.
Former LAPD detective Kading, who once led a special task force that investigated the shootings, says he was able to ‘trap’ Keffe into giving him information about Shakur’s murder to avoid a harsher sentence for another crime.
Kading says in retaliation for Tupac’s murder, Suge hired rival Blood gang member Wardell ‘Poochie’ Fouse to kill Diddy’s long-time friend Christopher Wallace, aka Biggie Smalls, for just $13,000.
