According to multiple sources, new audio evidence of the man charged with Tupac's murder, Duane "Keefe D" Davis, telling the police that Sean "Diddy" Combs ordered the death of Tupac Shakur, has reportedly been submitted as evidence for Davis' upcoming murder trial. 

Tupac Shakur.

According to The U.S. Sun, on the audio, Keefe D told the authorities that the former Bad Boy Records label head, Sean Combs offered him a million dollars to handle the murder of Shakur. Per The U. S. Sun, Keefe said: "Sh*t, he said he would give us anything for those dudes heads, you know?" According to the article, "The former Compton Crip apparently insisted that the million-dollar reward was proposed by Diddy - who has publicly dismissed claims he was involved in the shooting of Tupac and Suge as "nonsense." Prosecutors submitted the audio file to demonstrate Keefe's apparent confessions about being a key figure in the murder, but in many sections, he makes unsubstantiated allegations about Diddy - then known as Puffy. On the tape, Keefe openly boasted about growing close to Diddy, then-owner of Bad Boy Records, through mutual friend and gangster Eric "Zip" Martin." "Keefe alleges on the recording that Diddy called Zip, who handed the cellphone over and asked, "Was that us?" When he responded, "Yes," Keefe claimed, "He was happy." The gangster alleged that he never received any money for the shooting as Zip apparently said, "Puffy hasn't paid him yet," even though an acquaintance alleged that Zip secretly pocketed the cash. Keefe ended up in prison, so he was unable to pursue his alleged claim with Diddy, and Zip died in 2012 - four years after the police interview."

Keefe D alleged that Diddy's overall motivation for wanting Tupac and Suge Knight dead was because he feared Suge Knight; he contended in the article, "Puffy was scared, and was scared of the dude period." Keefe D also claimed that Combs' assassination order was given privately, "It was just me and him." A plethora of allegations have been made throughout the years as to why Shakur's murder happened and if Diddy was involved in the crime. In an interview with The Art of Dialogue, Shakur's older brother, Mopreme Shakur, said he spoke to Combs about Tupac's murder. Morpeme said Combs contacted him years ago to assure him that he had nothing to do with the crime. 

Keefe pleaded not guilty to all charges. His trial is scheduled for June 2024 in Las Vegas. To follow this story and other news, click the link to subscribe to Volume 82.
