A former LAPD cop claims that Grammy Award-winning artist Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs was responsible for hiring a killer to shoot Tupac Shakur in a drive-by in 1996.
Both Diddy, from New York, and Tupac, in Los Angeles, had been caught up in a bitter rivalry between East and West Coast rappers, the Huffington Post reports.
Christopher Wallace, aka Biggie Smalls – a close friend of P Diddy – was shot dead six months later in a revenge killing, according to retired detective Greg Kading, who once led a special task force that investigated the shootings.
Kading claims in a new documentary that Diddy hired Crips gang member Duane Keith ‘Keffe D’ Davis to kill Shakur and his manager Marion Hugh ‘Suge’ Knight for $1million.
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 that he’d ‘give anything for Pac and Suge Knight’s heads’.
Is Diddy a murderer?
