The murder of Tupac has been a case that the LAPD hasn’t been able to publicly crack since 1996, with fans eager to find out information behind his tragic death. While some have their own theories behind who murdered him 20 years ago, one retired LAPD cop claims that it was Diddy who was behind his death, having allegedly paid someone to kill him. The Bad Boy CEO became the center of controversy around the time of `Pac’s death, being that he had a serious beef with his artist, Notorious B.I.G., at the time, who was also killed just a few months later.

The claims against Diddy
Former LAPD detective Greg Kading created a new documentary based on his Murder Rap book from 2011, which goes into his claims that he believes Diddy had Tupac killed. The detective claims that Diddy paid Crip member Duane Keith $1 million to kill Tupac, as well as his manager at the time, Suge Knight. The documentary says that Orlando (Baby Lane) Anderson, who is the nephew of Keith, shot and killed Tupac, but only injured Knight at the time of the shooting. According to Kading, Keith gave a confession to authorities after he allegedly feared getting time for other crimes that he committed.
What we know about Tupac’s death
To this day, the LAPD has labeled the Tupac murder case as unsolved, but there is still a lot of information that authorities do seem to know. While we may not know for sure how the death of `Pac was planned and by who, we do know that he was shot on September 1996, just after the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson fight, while riding in the passenger side of a car driven by Suge Knight. It does seem to be nearly evident that Duane Keith had involvement in the death of Tupac, but to this day, we still may never know for sure what that exact involvement was, despite his confession.
