The former Southside Compton Crip sat down with The Art of Dialogue earlier this week where he called out Puffy for sinking the Death Row Records empire.
“I met him back in ’91. He was doing an Usher video [‘Can U Get Wit It.’] They called my hydraulics place and asked to use some low-riders. So I let them use my four and we took the car up there,” he recalled, explaining how he met Diddy.
“Usher danced all on the hood and window door so it was a big ole dent in it and shit. I took it up to the paint shop and they like, ‘We got to paint the whole car.’ So Puffy reimbursed me with that.”
Despite Diddy’s honorable act, Keefe D wishes he never crossed paths with him, as he believes his relationship with the Bad Boy Records mogul ultimately led to him being tied to 2Pac’s tragic 1996 death.
“If I wouldn’t have ever met him, I wouldn’t have ever been involved in this bullshit,” he stated. “I would’ve never met the brother. I never would’ve been involved in this bullshit. Me and Suge, we played on the same pop warner team and everything. My home boys helped put Suge in the game.
“It really crashed two people’s empire in one night. Mine’s for sure — Suge’s too. [Diddy] the only one still balling. He made our shit go down, man… He won’t even look out or nothing. Because he pitted us against each other, which was kinda smart. We’re Crips and Suge was Bloods.”
Check out Keefe D’s interview below:
Twenty-seven years after ‘Pac’s September 1996 murder in Las Vegas, the case remains unsolved. Although, the investigation got new life this month when authorities searched Keefe D’s home and found bullets that are no being tested by forensic experts to determine whether they are linked to the rap icon’s death.
According to the Daily Mirror, Las Vegas police recovered several .40 caliber bullets while executing a search warrant at the Henderson, Nevada residence belonging to Keefe D’s wife, Paula Clemons, last week.
Keefe D (real name Duane Davis) is the uncle of ‘Pac’s alleged killer, Orlando Anderson, and has admitted on more than one occasion to playing a role in the rapper’s 1996 murder.
A Vegas police source said the bullets will undergo forensic testing “to determine if they have any link to the bullets found in 2Pac’s body or on the scene of the homicide.”
Homicide detectives have kept forensic evidence from ‘Pac’s death scene and body, including bullets and clothing, in secure storage for over 25 years. They also have full-scale laboratory analysis of shells, bullets and powder from the crime scene.
