It seems that two of the most famous rappers who ever lived are being ushered back into the spotlight again with a new feature film surrounding both Tupac and Biggie‘s investigations called City of Lies as well as new 10-part Netflix series titled UNSOLVED: The Murders of Tupac and The Notorious BIG which also takes a more in-depth look at both cases both set for release this year. The creator of the Netflix series recently pointed out crucial evidence already in police possession as well as a confession made on TV, inciting fans to start a massive online petition.
Tupac Shukar was shot and killed in Las Vegas at 25 years old. According to a long list of witnesses Tupac and his crew made their way to Club 662 shortly after leaving a Mike Tyson fight where Pac and his entourage from the Bloods-affiliated Death Row Records – including CEO Suge Knight – beat up a Southside Crips gang member Orlando ‘Baby Lane’ Anderson, who would later be identified as Keefe Davis’s younger cousin.
Anderson was the prime suspect in the investigation at the time and officer Kading would also later confirm he also believed Anderson to be the man who shot Tupac. Unfortunately, Orlando died in a gang-related shooting two years after Tupac’s death.
In a recorded confession during his interview earlier this year for the documentary titled Death Row Chronicles, Keefe D implicates his younger cousin and himself in the crime, confessing under immunity now that he has cancer.
“I was a Compton kingpin, drug dealer, I’m the only one alive who can really tell you the story about the Tupac killing. People have been pursuing me for 20 years, I’m coming out now because I have cancer. And I have nothing else to lose. All I care about now is the truth.”
He goes on to describe exactly how the evening’s events went down in detail and when pressed to identify the killer on-camera in the same documentary, Davis replied, “I’m going to keep it for the code of the streets. It just came from the backseat, bro.” Watch both of the chilling and eerie videos of Keefe Davis below, one also containing real police recorded audio from the 90’s.
(UPDATE) Las Vegas Police have released a statement amidst rumors that an arrest warrant is about to be submitted for the murder of Tupac Shakur – “We are aware of the statements made in a BET interview regarding the Tupac case. As a result of those statements, we have spent the last several months reviewing the case in its entirety. Various reports that an arrest warrant is about to be submitted are inaccurate. This case still remains an open homicide case.” – LVMPD
