50 Cent continues to relentlessly taunt Diddy concerning the infamous murder of Tupac Shakur. Duane “Keefe D” Davis was arrested on September 29 and charged with the murder. Since then, 50 Cent has steadily taken aim at Diddy.
Shakur was tragically shot on the Las Vegas Strip on September 7, 1996 and succumbed to his wounds six days later. Davis confessed to his involvement in the murder alongside his nephew, Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, in his autobiography “Compton Street Legend.”
In July, the Las Vegas Police Department conducted a series of raids that yielded sufficient evidence to charge Davis with murder using a deadly weapon and aiding a criminal gang.
On November 2, the ex-Crip pleaded not guilty with public defenders Robert Arroyo and Charles Cano representing him.
50 Cent put the heat on Diddy again, writing, “This s### is so funny to me. Keefe D getting ready to go on trial for murder with a public defender damn throw [him] a bone or something. LOL,” 50 Cent captioned the post.
The discord between Shakur and Diddy was well-publicized, and stemmed from Shakur’s accusation that Diddy and The Notorious B.I.G. had prior knowledge of the 1994 shooting that left Shakur wounded.
The feud escalated through diss tracks, notably Shakur’s “Hit ‘Em Up,” which brazenly targeted Diddy, Biggie and others associated with Bad Boy Records.
Before Davis’ capture, he implicated Diddy in Shakur’s murder during an interview with the Art of Dialogue, claiming Diddy had offered a bounty for the hit on Suge Knight, who was with Shakur during the shooting.
Diddy has consistently refuted these allegations, and Shakur’s brother Mopreme shared that Diddy personally reached out to him to deny any involvement.
“The story is beyond ridiculous and completely false,” Diddy stated to AllHipHop.com in 2008. “Neither Biggie nor I had any knowledge of any attack before, during or after it happened. It is a complete lie to suggest that there was any involvement by Biggie or myself.”
Mopreme still concluded the Las Vegas Police Department needs to talk to the Bad Boy founder about his possible involvement in the case.
