Former Detective Greg Kading Clarifies His Shocking Allegations Regarding The Murder Of Tupac Shakur

Exclusive: The cop-turned-author answers every question created by his shocking LA Weekly profile in regards to his investigation into the murder of Tupac Shakur.

With the steady stream of increasingly shocking new developments surrounding the still unsolved murders of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. over the last few months, one might mistakenly think their current calendar is emblazoned with the year 1997 instead of 2011.

After Dexter Isaac confessed to AllHipHop.com his involvement in the 1994 Quad Studios attack on Tupac, (which planted the seeds of the infamous East vs. West beef), and Clayton Hill confessed to HipHopDX.com his role in allegedly aiding Amir Muhammad after the murder of The Notorious B.I.G., it didn’t seem like this year could get any more retro regarding the ‘Pac and Biggie saga. But it was déjà vu all over again on Monday (October 3rd), when the LA Weekly published their piece on the revelations made to them by former Los Angeles Police Detective Greg Kading (and subsequently published in Kading’s just-released book, Murder Rap) that Marion “Suge” Knight gave one of his child’s mother’s $13,000 to contract a Wardell “Poochie” Fouse to murder Biggie Smalls, and that Sean “Diddy” Combs commissioned Duane Keith “Keffe D” Davis to take out Tupac Shakur, along with Suge Knight, for the much more impressive sum of one million dollars.      

HipHopDX spoke with Mr. Kading the day after the LA Weekly’s explosive entry into this year’s media frenzy over the decade-and-a-half old investigations into the interwoven murders of two of Hip Hop’s most revered talents. In the first half of DX’s Q&A with Kading published on Wednesday (October 5th), one of the successors to Russell Poole in helming the Notorious B.I.G. murder investigation shared his reasoning for repudiating Poole’s long-respected theory that rogue cops affiliated with Marion "Suge" Knight colluded with Knight and an associate, Amir Muhammad, to murder Biggie Smalls. And now in the second half of his eye-popping conversation with DX, Kading discusses his investigation into Tupac’s murder, in which he netted a stunning (and yet still questionable) confession from the aforementioned Keffe D to that crime once Keffe was allegedly on the ropes for running a drug ring. The man who claims to have finally solved the murders of The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac explained why he believes Keffe D, his nephew Orlando Anderson and two fellow Crips killed ‘Pac at the request of Diddy, and why he believes you should believe his book’s controversial claims.

Detective Greg Kading Names Whom He Believed Killed Tupac Shakur 

HipHopDX: Can you clarify how you – as an L.A.P.D. detective – came to be investigating the Tupac murder case, which I understood to be the jurisdiction of Las Vegas Metro Police?

Greg Kading: What ended up happening during our investigation of [Notorious B.I.G’s] homicide – we were taking a very broad approach to it, we were gonna try to address all the different theories: whether it was Puffy Combs, whether it was the Southside Crips, whether it was the Nation Of Islam, whether it was the Bloods as retaliation [for Tupac’s murder]. We were looking at it from every different angle. … We’re thinking, Okay, maybe it was Puff behind Biggie’s murder, and if so it could’ve been the Southside Crips. There was this rumor going around that it was them because they never got paid for the [Tupac] murder. So there were all these theories going around.   

Well, once we got Keffe D’s back up against the wall and he explained to us that him and his nephew, [Orlando Anderson], and the rest of that little Crip entourage committed the murder of Tupac out in Las Vegas, and then he explains that the conspiracy to commit the murder of Tupac had developed in Los Angeles during his conversations with Puffy Combs, we realized now that we had some legitimate ownership of [the Tupac case as well]. Even though the murder took place in Las Vegas, and technically it was their investigation, since the conspiracy to murder happened in our jurisdiction it gave us a legitimate cause to investigate it.   

Since now we had the star witness, [Keffe D], and now we needed to protect him in order to further the investigation to take it up to where it’s tied to the other conspirators, we needed to really protect that aspect of the case. Because if it got out [that], “Hey, Keffe D’s cooperating,” or anything like that, well you can imagine that would’ve interfered with the ongoing investigation.   

DX: Speaking of that, was Keffe D charged federally for running that nationwide PCP ring? ‘Cause I was just searching in the PACER case locator, and the last criminal case involving a Duane Keith Davis was closed back in 1998.

Greg Kading: Yep. And the answer’s no.

DX: Okay, he was never charged federally?

Greg Kading: Nope.

DX: Was he charged by the state?

Greg Kading: Nope.  

DX: Okay … so what happened to Keffe D?

Greg Kading: Well, you might have to ask the U.S. Attorney’s Office why they never charged him. I can’t answer that.

DX: Do you know if his snitching on Puff influenced that decision?

Greg Kading: It shouldn’t have.

DX: Did you make any promises to him of a reduced sentence in exchange for those statements regarding Puff?

Greg Kading: No. The only arrangement we had is what’s known as a proffer agreement, where he sits down and agrees to cooperate with us. We can’t use his own statements against him. That’s the arrangement. So, it doesn’t mean that he’s not gonna get charged in any cases that he talks about, all it means is that we won’t use his personal incriminating statements against himself. So that’s what he’s kind of guaranteed. But that comes with a caveat of its own: we will only not use his own words against him as long as anything else he tells us regarding that case or any other case is never proven to be untrue. In other words, if he lies, and we can prove he’s lied about anything, we then can use his confessions against himself. That’s the strongest motivation right there for him to be completely honest, regarding everything.    

DX: I’m just a little mystified that … no one ever charged him with anything. They just let him walk.

Greg Kading: Well … yep. I don’t wanna speculate too much on that. But yeah, I would agree with you, I don’t understand it myself.  

I think things would of changed and worked out drastically different had the L.A.P.D. not taken its lead investigator off the case, who had accomplished all of this. I’m not trying to pat myself on the back; I’m just being very practical about this. I was assigned to the case, and I got something accomplished that nobody had ever gotten accomplished and that was to get the people that participated in these murders to confess. And then right when you’re positioned to take those confessions and exploit them to get the other conspirators, you’re taken off the task force and then both of the cases just die in their tracks and nothing else is done.

Detective Kading's Theory On Why Tupac Shakur's Murder Was Never Solved

DX: What supporting evidence did you gather to confirm that Keffe D’s statements regarding Tupac’s murder were in fact truthful?

Greg Kading: Well, we read a couple other reports, both F.B.I. and – Well, first of all, I mean, obviously, you’ve got this extremely strong circumstantial case, just based on the fact that his nephew had gotten his ass kicked in the lobby [of the MGM Grand], and these are some legitimate gangsters. And so, it’s a pretty reasonable conclusion to draw that Orlando Anderson – Keffe D’s nephew – would’ve had the motivation to shoot Tupac.

So, that’s one thing that kind of supports Keffe D’s confession. The other thing is he mentions getting the guns from this guy named Zip. And we have other statements of individuals in Las Vegas that say that they were with Zip, and corroborate the fact that these guys had a very excited reaction to the Orlando Anderson beat-down. And one of ‘em mentions like, “Oh, man, we got artillery out here!,” in response to the fact that now they have to go retaliate. One of the guys in that group with Zip says, “Man, they don’t know who they’re fuckin’ with. We got artillery out here!”     

DX: And just to clarify once and forever, this group of Crips doesn’t go and meet with Biggie Smalls in a hotel room like Chuck Philips claimed and are handed a gun directly by Biggie?

Greg Kading: Absolutely not. There’s no evidence whatsoever that Biggie was there. There’s no evidence whatsoever in our entire investigation that Biggie knew anything about the conspiracy to murder Tupac. I think Biggie was really misaligned by that information, which was baseless.

DX: And, will you release to the public the recordings you have of your interview with Keffe D?

Greg Kading: No, that has to be done through the proper channels. That has to go through the L.A.P.D.  

DX: That segues into my next question: Can’t you be prosecuted for stealing those interview tapes?

Greg Kading: Well, no. And that’s kind of loaded language right there, because I didn’t steal anything. As an investigator, I’m privy to keep material of everything I do in my own investigation. I can’t keep any evidence, which is the big difference. Everything that I have copies of, the originals are on file in the L.A.P.D.’s case file. I simply have copies of my own investigative work.

There’s nothing illegal about that. They may claim that that’s inappropriate, but there’s no precedent to say it’s inappropriate. Think about any true-crime novel that’s ever been written is based on copies of police documents. So, please, that word steal is a very loaded word.

DX: Well, I appreciate you clarifying that, I wasn’t sure of the circumstances, so … Going back to the actual shooting of Tupac, can you list for me everybody you believe was in that white Cadillac?

Greg Kading: Yeah, there’s a guy named Terrence Brown. He went by the Crip gang moniker of “Bubble Up.” There was a guy named Deandre Smith. He just went by the name of “Dre.” There was Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson. And of course, Duane “Keffe D” Davis.  

DX: So how were you able to confirm that those were the people in that Cadillac? Just based off of Keffe D’s testimony?

Greg Kading: Based off of Keffe D’s testimony, as far as the number. Keffe says, “There’s four of us.” And the witnesses in Tupac’s entourage – I think it was Frank Alexander, I’m not sure, mentions the carload with two front seat and two backseat occupants.  

DX: And, did your research confirm the previously reported overview of that shooting: that Orlando Anderson fired a .40 caliber Glock thirteen times at Suge’s BMW, striking Tupac three times and grazing Suge once?

Greg Kading: That’s correct.

DX: Can you clarify – there have been conflicting reports about whether Suge actually was struck, or he was grazed, were you able to [clarify that]?

Greg Kading: No, I was never able to verify that. Of course, Suge likes to claim that he still has a bullet in his head. But I think that’s just bravado, gangster-boasting. We believe that it was a superficial wound caused either by like a graze or by some lead or glass fragments. When bullets hit things you never know what’s gonna start flying. And it could’ve been just the jacketing of the bullet, it could’ve been a piece of metal from the door, it could’ve been some glass. So, don’t know what hit him, all I know is that it was superficial.

DX: So the obvious follow-up then is that Suge was a large man … he was twice the size of Tupac, did you have any sort of eyewitnesses or anybody that claimed Suge basically used Tupac as a human shield?

Greg Kading: Um … I know that’s out there. There’s that speculation. I truly don’t. I think that Tupac in the heat of that moment - when some guys are pulling up next to you [and] all of the sudden you see a gun come out the window, you are gonna instinctively begin to flex away from that. You’re gonna instinctively turn away from that and begin to try to move and protect yourself away from that. And I think that’s what the people were seeing, was him trying to get out of the immediate, point-blank range line of fire. And so I really think that’s what happened. And, more likely than not – and this is speculation – is that Tupac’s movements, and the way he reacted, did create a human shield and very likely protected Suge, although it was all unintentional.

Detective Kading Ties Orlando Anderson To Tupac Shakur's Murder

DX: Now the reason I had you clarify the number of shots, and just how all that went down, is because if this was indeed a hired hit they did it awful sloppily. I’m sure there were much cleaner ways to do this. Did Keffe explain why they did it this way?

Greg Kading: Yeah, it was in the heat of [the aftermath of] the beating. There was no intention whatsoever to go out to Las Vegas to carry out the murder plot. They went out there strictly to party and to watch the [Mike Tyson] fight. The beat-down of Orlando in the MGM, all that did was kick into gear something that had already been planned [but] that wasn’t supposed to take place then. Keffe D says they wanted to do it back in L.A.  

DX: Did he explain what his ideal scenario was, if they had an actual plan?

Greg Kading: No, he didn’t. I doubt that he even had one. I mean, these are just gangsters, man. These aren’t professional hit-men. They’re not guys that put a lot of thought into this stuff. I mean, Orlando Anderson was known for shooting all over his neighborhood. It’s pretty random during these gang shootings and gang drive-bys. It’s definitely not The Bourne Ultimatum-type of stuff.  

DX: And per your investigation, Puff refused to pay Keffe for the hit because Suge lived?

Greg Kading: No, we don’t have that information, at all. I don’t know that. That’s speculation. There’s a rumor out there like that, but we don’t know that. All we know is that Keffe D claims he never received any of the money. And, he asked Zip to go get the money, and then Keffe D was shortly [thereafter] arrested on that federal case that you mentioned earlier, which took him out of the picture for a minute. And so, once he was taken out of the picture, the debt, so to speak, just kind of got shelved. However, as you’ll read in the book, Keffe D heard from another source that he felt was reliable that half the money had been paid from Puffy to Zip, but Zip never delivered. The courier took off with the pizza.  

DX: And this may just be speculation on your part, but why didn’t Keffe kill Puff for not paying him the million dollars he agreed to?

Greg Kading: Well, he went to prison, so it’s kinda hard to pull that off from – well, I shouldn’t say that, because obviously [Suge] Knight did that. Um … I don’t know. I asked Keffe after he got out of prison if he had any contact [with Puff]. “No, I haven’t.” Keffe D just jumped right back up into his big drug distribution ring and was making money.

DX: Now, before Keffe went to prison for those ’98 charges, it’s been previously reported that both Keffe and Orlando Anderson were present at the Petersen Automotive Museum the night Biggie was murdered. Did you investigate the possibility that Keffe killed Biggie that night as retribution for being stiffed on payment for Tupac’s murder?

Greg Kading: Yeah, we did. We looked into that, and we didn’t find that to be a plausible theory. Not only after talking to Keffe D and having him deny it – It didn’t really pan out.

When you think of it in a plausible or common sense [way] – knowing that they had just killed Tupac, to come there and publicly go up and make a contact with Puffy and Biggie in front of all those people and then go outside and lay in wait in your own black [Chevrolet] Impala, that is just really not plausible.

DX: But you said these guys do non-plausible things all the time?

Greg Kading: Yeah, well, I mean as far as like when they do their heat-of-the-moment type stuff, or their drive-bys, they’re not coordinated and planned. And they don’t have this orchestrated thing.

[So] to think that Keffe D is gonna walk into the Petersen Automotive Museum, go up – and he actually walks up and asks … first he encounters Lil’ Cease, and then Puffy kinda waves him through, and Puffy and Biggie are sitting there together and [Keffe is] like, “Yo, man, y’all need some security here? There’s some Blood muthafuckas here.” And they’re like, “Nah, we’re cool, we’re good.” So then, Keffe D just kinda leaves it alone. And in [2008] he tells us though, he’s like, “Man, I knew something was wrong when I got there. I saw them Death Row [Records] people there.” And of course, it’s no stretch of the imagination that they’re gonna wanna retaliate for what happened to Tupac. And so he says he was on alert, thinking something was gonna go down.

But I just, I really – Because he came clean in the one [murder], it gives him a little bit of credibility in his denial of the other. And then when you compound it out with the fact that now we have [“Theresa Swann”] confessing to that one, and telling us what actually happened, all those collective considerations allow us to kind of draw the conclusions we have.

DX: I just wanna wrap up this interview by giving you an opportunity to tell what I’m sure will be at least a partially skeptical audience here at HipHopDX why they should feel confident enough in the claims you make in your book to purchase Murder Rap to read the full details for themselves?

Greg Kading: I’m telling this story because I believe it to be the truth. I believe it to be the best evidence out there right now. And, you know, I walked away from over a million dollars of earning potential with my career at the L.A.P.D. I left short. And I sacrificed a lot because I knew the story wasn’t gonna get told. This is not about capitalizing for me. This is a self-published book. I dumped [$30,000] into this project just to get here myself, and gave up on a large earning potential with the police department. This was an ethical conviction I had to do this, I believe it was the right thing, and if people can see that I’m coming at this from a very honest approach, it’ll give the book the credibility for people to believe it.

    Greg is a hack and this book is the work of known liar, Chuck Phillips. DT. Kading has misrepresented truths throughout his career, more notably, Torres-Ramos case, where a murderer was released due to Kading's misrepresentation of truth.

    Kading is a hack who was out for a quick buck with that lame book that basically went in circles with no conclusion cause no one talked.

  • Gigi

    This whole thing is so messed up. I for one can't wait to read this book. As much as I can be a conspiracy theorist I have to say Kading's story makes sense. If it really is true I cant wait for both their heads on a platter for this. Hope that day does comes soon. I also cant wait to read Mark Curry's book exposing more dirt on Diddy also. Since they both pretty much killed off Soul(Tupac) and Flow( Biggie). Thanks to them we have to hear retarded sell out artists like some of the ones we have today.I wander if they feel any guilt at all with each one having a huge ass ego.

  • maggie

    IM on my second bag of popcorn readin all these comments, lol. Let the show go on....

  • Scarface

    One thing i want to add to that long comment I wrote is for all you after reading that asking if it was known why wasn't it solved? Because the LAPD and LVPD have known this since day one but the LVPD did not want to solve it cause they honestly didn't care and didn't want bad publicity and further worsen the east vs west beef. It wasn't suppose to be a east vs west beef but because of who pac, biggie, puffy and suge were everyone from every coast was getting involved cause the beef was so personal. LAPD even raided orlando's house in LA as he was being investigated for 2 other murders and they found the same gun used to kill Pac. There was enough evidence to arrest Orlando but like I said the LVPD did not care. As much as i hate pigs the LAPD was trying to help LVPD solve the case and they gave them a lot of evidence as well but the LVPD could care less. Biggie was killed by Suge's boys who were the LAPD and Compton PD. The same people that helped kill Biggie were the same ones that showed up to the call about Biggie getting shot. How are you going to catch the shooters when there the ones showing up to FIND the shooters

  • anon

    this makes no sense, they got payed a million, yet they didn't plan the shooting? it just happened? why did tupac stomp orlando? for no reason? one of suges boys whispered something in his ear right before he ran over to orlando, why didn't any of the body guards have there weapons on them? shits all set up you think if they were to shoot tupac these gangsters let alone diddy would do it in a more subtle place? in the middle of the las vegas strip, too risky for p diddy to plan.

    • Jimmy Red

      SUGE KNIGHT TOLD SWAVE OR SOME FAMOUS INTERVIEWER WHILE THEY WERE BOTH IN JAIL THAT ORLANDO DID IT ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ He told Monster Kody aka Sanyika Shakur that. At the time Shakur was doing a bid and also doing correspondent work with Rap Pages. It just so happened first got shipped to the joint where Shakur was and he interviewed Suge.

    • Scarface

      Alright well i never post but I have to since there so many ignorant people. THERE IS NO CONSPIRACY. THIS GUY IS TELLING THE TRUTH behind pac's death and biggie's death do your research they were killed over street shit. Keffe D is Orlando Anderson's uncle and he was friends/security for puffy and biggie and bad boy whenever they came down to LA. Puffy had offered Keffe before all this a million dollars to kill suge and pac this was MORE ABOUT SUGE KNIGHT then 2PAC since Suge was after Puffy and Puffy was shit scared. That night 2Pac and Suge Knight coincedentially ran into Orlando the reason why Pac beat him cause ORLANDO ROBBED AND JUMPED one of pac's boy at footlocker a week earlier due to a war going on between bloods and crips over a drug deal gone wrong and that same boy whispered in Pac's ear and pointed out ORLANDO. After the fight Orlando met up with Keefe D and other southside crips and they thought WHY NOT COLLECT ON THE HIT AND GET REVENGE they were going to kill him at Club 662 but they found them on the road while they were going there and Orlando shot them. Keffe D knew Suge as well they grew up up in the streets of compton they even looked at each other when the car pulled up but they weren't friends and when orlando shot they thought SUGE WAS DEAD HENCE THE RUMOURS AT CLUB 662 AFTER THAT they BOTH DIED. SUGE survived though CAUSE PAC TRIED JUMPING IN THE BACK AND THAT INDIRECTLY CREATED A SHIELD FOR SUGE. Puffy only paid 500 000 cause he SUGE lived and KEFFE D was locked up on other charges so his boy ZIP who collected the money SAID FUCK KEFFE IM TAKING THE MONEY AND left with the money. Everyone was smoked within a week besides Orlando who was smoked 2 years later and Keffe who was in Jail and 4 years ago CONFESSED TO ALL THIS as this detective is saying. BIGGIE WAS KILLED IN RETALIATION FOR PAC'S DEATH BUT PUFFY WAS THE ONE MEANT TO BE KILLED BUT SOMETHING HAPPENED AND HE SURVIVED BUT BIGGIE LIKE 2PAC WAS killed. KEFFE D was there that night and told them there were bloods they should hire them as security but they said it was cool and 10 minutes later Biggie was killed DO YOUR RESEARCH BELIEVE IT DON'T BELIEVE IT IT'S THE TRUTH Keffe D WAS ALREADY PLANNING TO KILL SUGE AND 2PAC BUT IN LA THAT NIGHT WAS A BAD NIGHT AND COINCIDENTALLY THEY RAN INTO HIS NEPHEW ORLANDO AND THE REST WE ALL KNOW. Listen to LONG KISS GOODNIGHT. Brains blew my men in the marine blue six coupe weeded out skeeded the block for distances giving long kisses bitch. This line means that Biggie most likely did not know about the hit he thought his boys the southside crips got pissed over the beating and killed him and he was gloating that they got away cause that night EVERYONE WAS SHOCKED AS TO HOW THEY DID NOT GET CAUGHT CAUSE IT WAS LAS VEGAS AND IT WAS SO OBVIOUS it happened on a MAIN ROAD AND THEY HAD JUST GOTTEN IN A FIGHT. Suge did get REVENGE FOR PAC everyone's dead I don't know about Keffe D listen to NEVER HAD A FRIEND LIKE ME i'm down for you so ride with me my enemies your enemies cause you never had a friend like me. Pac and Suge were brothers and pac had suge's back and unfortunetly it cost him his life but SUGE AND PAC WERE CLOSE EVEN THOUGH SUGE WAS STILL SOME WHAT FUCKING HIM OVER IN TERMS OF MONEY BUT PERSONALLY THEY WERE BROTHERS SUGE KNIGHT DID NOT DO IT HE DID NOT KILL 2PAC. O and the last few things I want to say is look up footage of the ORLANDO ANDERSON INTERVIEW WHEN ASKED ABOUT WHO KILLED PAC HE WAS SMILING AND THE DAY AFTER HE SHOT PAC HE WAS OUT BRAGGING ON THE STREETS THAT HE DID. SUGE KNIGHT TOLD SWAVE OR SOME FAMOUS INTERVIEWER WHILE THEY WERE BOTH IN JAIL THAT ORLANDO DID IT RESEARCH THIS SHIT I'VE DONE MY RESEARCH AND PAC'S MY FAVOURITE RAPPER AND HIP-HOP IS ALL I LISTEN TO SO I KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING IS TRUE.

    Such bullshit. If I was promised a million and saw $0, I would KILL that motherfucker. And so would anyone, especially a hardened gang member that killed Pac. But that's not what happened and this detective was probably taken off the case for doing drugs. He never really explains why he was taken off the case. Maybe it was because he made up a lot of bullshit out of nowhere and they couldn't let him taint an empty investigation. If it was the crips, and this Dick was telling the truth, the LVPD would have solved it since it didn't implicate them at all. LAPD too. Ex-Dick is a liar.

      So we're saying this cop was on drugs and made this up now? This is the investigator of the entire case, who else are you seriously going to believe more than this guy? He was removed from the investigation because Internal Affairs had accused him of making false statements on affidavits and some witness tampering against some suspected LA drug lord. Well even that turned out to be bullshit, he was cleared of wrongdoing, and in the end and this guy was probably yanked off the case because of politics. As far as Keffe not getting his million and not killing Diddy for it, who is anyone to say that's exactly what they would do? Is it really that easy to kill someone as wealthy and connected as Diddy anyway? Somehow I doubt it. Plus the cop said Keffe was thrown in prison anyway and came back to get rich in his PCP ring, and they didn't kill Suge Knight anyway. It's a stretch to say "anyone" would have killed Diddy if you don't bother reading and thinking about the actual circumstances, and maybe Keffe thought he'd be getting paid later. Maybe the courier took the money. Obviously Diddy trusted this guy enough to tell him to murder the biggest rapper in the world and Suge together. Shit we don't know what was going on. If you think anyone can walk up to Diddy and rob or kill him in the first place, give me a break. The LAPD put this guy on the case after so long because Biggie's mother was suing the department for complicity and wanted to clear their name so her lawsuit can be dropped. This guy got closer than anyone ever and the fact he drew out a confession and confirmation from someone is proof of that. Who else killed Tupac besides the gang member he just beat up in the lobby? Think! Anyone who still says it was a setup by Suge has got to have something wrong with their brains. Nobody, not even Suge, is going to PAY PEOPLE TO INDISCRIMINATELY SHOOT THE GUY SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO YOU, especially when you're as big a guy as he is. Good lord people are stupid. If Suge wanted Tupac whacked, I can think up a million better ways off the top of my head than picking the time the dude is sitting right next to you in the path of flying bullets.

      COSIGN. i been saying the same shit. how the fuck Diddy would promise a million and then these niggas not at least take his life. real G niggas have killed people for way less money than that. thank you man, i ben saying it all along all this shit was a setup Suge is smarter than we think. Pac was owed MILLIONS from death row, and that shit is documented as a FACT.

    i meant Tupac killed Pro-Bono with no payment.

    i meant Tupac killed Pro-Bono.

  • nysportzfan4life

    ok so i read al of this and ONE thing in his story does NOT add up. now we all know that there is ZERO honor when it comes to the G-Code. so u want to tell me that you killed Tupac with Puff having to pay you a million dollars, yet you receive NO MONEY, and still go out there to provide security.... give me a brak on that. living in NYC for almost 30 years i have seen stories about drug dealers get killed for less money in the most gruesome ways. so now u wanna tell me that Crips gang members pulled a hit on Biggie Pro-Bono after not receiving a single cent? and then came out to do more work for free? if this were all true u now Diddy's punk ass would be in the witness protection program hiding from them for not having paid in full... or he would be on the front pages of NYPOST with the title "Puffy Dead". im just saying ya'll that whole shit right there sounds fishy.

    listen everybody when you read this "whether it was Puffy Combs, whether it was the Southside Crips, whether it was the Nation Of Islam, whether it was the Bloods as retaliation [for Tupac’s murder]. " .. when you read this and at that point you dont notice how he doesnt mention the police, your an idiot and you dont really understand rap at all ..

    I believe it because it makes sense and confirms what a lot of people have said since the beginning. This guy was the investigator and had all the resources and authority to examine the evidence, get the testimony, and put it together. Really, who else are you going to believe? Plus it's not a stretch to realize the police never solved the public murders of high-profile celebrities because there were dirty cops involved in some way. As far as Pac getting murdered, is it hard to believe the gang member he just beat the shit out of earlier was the one who rolled up with his crew, knowing where Pac was, and shot him up? Sure there are valid reasons to say Suge benefited from Pac getting killed, perhaps to keep a lucrative hold on all those masters if Pac was going to leave Death Row, but nobody pays other people to arbitrarily gun down the person you're sitting right next to. That's just stupid even for Suge. I'm definitely sure Biggie was killed with the help or enabling by crooked police which explains why it was never solved, but then again, it's not easy to solve these kinds of murders when they're done by gang members off the streets in a culture where nobody talks to the police in the first place. If the investigator wrote this book and fingered Diddy for orchestrating the murder of Pac, I would imagine he would have filed a big lawsuit long ago to clear his name, and I don't think he's done that. I don't think Diddy wants to argue this in a courtroom or face the evidence implicating him in front of a judge, and would prefer to ignore it and probably tell others it's bullshit. If someone wrote a book saying I was responsible for putting together a hit against someone beloved and famous and I didn't do it, you can bet I'd have a lawyer on that immediately for defamation and damages to prove I didn't. Think about it.

  • abstrakt

    im so tired of this death row jumped a known gang member at the tyson fight then that very night their car got shot up is it really difficult to figure out... honestly the conspiracy noise has to stop

  • Matt Gutierrez

    I have spent countless hours researching pac's murder and intend to address it as apart of my interests as a music recording artist. These murder's need to be solved once in for all if hip-hop has any hope for survival as a culture. Rapper's today have failed to meet the standard for bringing this issue to light. They have an opportunity to engage fans with the right message and questions to offer the truth a chance to finally come out. I'll definitely read his book and contact his people to expose this story as a true recording artist with intent to spread truth to the listeners

  • Whatever

    Suge not getting shot sitting next to Pac just doesn't make any sense at all. That's what I know.

  • Ozzy Salas

    it was either suge or Puff Daddy

  • Rob

    I have not spent enough time on this subject to comment on wether I believe this version to be true but it reminds me of a story claiming the way more corny MC Hammer almost had 3rd Bass killed by gangsters but was tamed with a good seat at an award show.

    i dont believe this. this is all circumstance. everyone knoes suge paid the muslim dude muhammed or whoever to kill biggie. a million different cops have said the same thing. i knwo you guys hate (jealous of?) puff, but this is just stupid. plenaty of dudes i hate, don't mean i pin murder on them.

      fuck man, is this cop gonna make a whole fuckin book to lie to your ass?! At least his shit is much more honest and believable then your post. He was a high ranking cop who actually worked the case, your a fuckin blogger..fuck. I believe Karma will hit everyone in this, it pretty much already did except for a few peeps. But it wont matter till then, cause they ain't gonna bring this case back up, its pretty much over, and people have gotten away, how they can fuck this major public case up..

    crazy shit, finally it's all out though. they needed this solved, hopefully something will really be done about it all though

  • Anonymous

    Yeah, this former LAPD detective don't need to lie or make up stories. I believe this. I think everybody knew that Diddy and Biggie had everything to do with it all along. I believe Diddy had Tupac killed - and I believe Biggie knew about it and he probably was the one who ordered it.

  • Anonymous

    Suge probably had Pac killed to make money off of his posthumous career. Puff probably had Biggie killed for the same reason. They had the most to gain out of all of this in reality. Suge and Puff's ego's couldn't handle their artists makin all of the waves.

  • Anonymous

    i would like to thank this guy for doing the ethical thing and quitting the police to get this story told to ease our minds just a little. I don't think anyone will ever know the truth but this is a good man for shedding some light on a very dark case. It's crazy how P and B both knew how they would die.

    diddy had 2pac killed? do detective Kading think we ain't already know that? biggie ordered the hit, diddy arranged it and nobody went to prison for it. diddy should be tried in court right now. the LAPD and the Las Vegas police departments is sittin' on a lot of tapes and documents. Way too much corruption for the truth to come out. Diddy will never admit to it. But what goes around comes around - Biggie ordered a hit, not even a year later he got hit.

  • WestCoast G

    It's no news that P. Diddy and Biggie Smalls had Tupac Shakur killed. It wasn't just about Hip Hop, it was personal between Biggie and Pac. I think Biggie called the shots, but he never dirtied his hands. He let Diddy do the dirty work of hiring and conspiring, while he made the music. Notorious BIG had everything to gain from Pac's death. Him and Tupac were neck and neck as far as the Hip Hop industry goes. When Tupac was taken out, Biggie was on top of the world by himself and Tupac was no longer there with him to steal some of that spotlight. Biggie also settled some personal scores. There were a lot of personal issues between the 2 - who were at one time "best friends". At the time 1996-1997, the Notorious BIG was leading the charts, but Tupac was always right there too and Biggie didn't want to share the spotlight with someone whom he had so many personal issues with. Tupac died because Biggie wanted him dead. However, Biggie's death is the real mystery here. Did Biggie get killed because he didn't pay up to the people that Diddy got to kill Pac or did Suge Knight have Biggie killed in retaliation to Tupac's murder?

    • nipple cap covers

      what your saying makes sense. the police have all the evidence they need to make a conviction in my opinion

    • chin

      biggie only went double plat, pac was with deathrow!!!!! biggie and tupac werent neck and neck... badboy became huge after biggie died.. before that deathrow and the westcoast was running the rap game... dr.dre the chronic sold 4 million, doggystyle sold 5 million, doggpound sold 2million, murder was the case soundtrack sold 2 million, above the rim soundtrack 2million, all eyez on me 5 million, makaveli 5 millions, doggfather 2 millions... deathrow was killing it... how was biggie and 2pac neck and neck... biggies own song your nobody til somebody kills you is perfect song for biggie

      we cant real judge biggie but can qestion diddy they wanted to mobsters so badly

    • Anonymous

      ^^^ you're living in a fantasy world. sure pac sold more than big, but no where near is a stretch. go ahead and pretend liek all eyes on me sales weren't inflated because of the double disc or that life after death wouldn't have sold if big were alive, or that me against the world sold as much as ready to die. everyone from back then knows on popularity they were about equal.

    • Enlightened

      Hold on homie... You got some misinformation. Maybe you're a youngster. Biggie was NOWHERE NEAR PAC ON THE CHARTS! 2Pac sold way more albums that Biggie. Ready to Die only went Double Platinum (back then before his death). Biggie didn't sell a lot until after his death. Do the knowledge. His record sales was child's play compared to 2Pac

    For those of you who are saying that Greg Kading wrote this book only for money...Don't you think he'd say "Read the book" instead of basically answering all the questions in great detail if that was the case?

  • AfricanHipHop

    If puff didnt pay Keefe for killing pac. Why would keefe want to protect him and biggie while they were partying in LA? This is a major gap that the DX community needs to highlight coz this dude looks like he wanna make money off a case that very powerful people want dead ...

    • jnr

      I was thinking the same thing when i got to that part. It doesn't make sense that someone who was owed a lot of money will be offering his services AGAIN for security, i mean he will be pissed off and man-handling puff right there asking for his money etc... Hmmm. Kading, you need to clarify that bit for us the readers!

    • Axl Rose

      yeaa when i read that i was like wtf, something doesn't add up. does anyone wanna clarify?

  • East UP, West Down

    People once and for all, you stupid people on the west cost, Biggie never had 2pac killed, 2pac got killed because he has always invited that to himself and someone prove he wasnt bullet proff, and Fact's Suge had Biggie killed Period nothing else i dont want to hear it.

  • SutterKane

    I believe him for some reason, not saying its all true, but I believe that he believes it, I dont think he just wrote this thing to make some headlines

  • RTJ00

    I dont know about this. The whole Pac not having a vest on and his guards telling he didn't need one that night and a lot of other things don't add up. The way these murders were done were to legit, to professional, it don't seem like a bunch of gang members alone did this. And why now? The NYPD couldn't solve it then? Why?

    • Rob

      He explained "why now" and the NYPD has not solved it, he (thinks he) has. The 2Pac murder was obviously not professional and predictable so the heat-of-the-moment idea fits. 2Pac himself has been seen shooting around like crazy and always having a gun with you just makes it more likely you die by one. Civiliced countries with tough gun laws and no death penalty have way less murders, here we got another demonstration for what happens when young aggressive men insist on owning guns, no way to prevent havoc.

      suge got big whacked. thats for sure.. now pac i dont know about. but i do know snoop is tight with puff now, and if puff had anything 2 do with pac dying, i know snoop would find out on the down low some how and would not be tight with him. so that leaves the question what the hell hapened. i think the casino beating upset crips and they shot at pac. its not hard 2 see what car hes in when hes mobbing out of the casino. tail and shoot. i just dont know how they got away with it..
