A former LAPD officer alleges Sean "Diddy" Combs hired a killer in 1996 to shoot Tupac Shakur.
Retired detective Greg Kading, who led the task force that investigated the murders of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, says in a new documentary that Diddy hired a member of the Crips gang, Duane Keith "Keffe D" Davis, to shoot Shakur and his manager Suge Knight in a drive-by shooting for $1 million.
Keffe D's nephew, Orlando "Baby Lane" Anderson, was the one who reportedly shot Shakur on Sept. 7, 1996, claims the former officer.
Kading made the allegations in a documentary called "Murder Rap." The movie features a 2008 interview in which Keffe D says he recalled hearing Diddy say to a group of Crips members that he would "give anything for Pac and Suge Knight's heads."
A similar story was published in the Los Angeles Times in 2008, but a retraction was published after saying that FBI reports used as sourced were "fabricated."
In "Murder Rap," Kading says Knight hired a member of the Crips' rivals, the Bloods, Wardell "Poochie" Fouse to kill Biggie Smalls, a longtime friend of Diddy's, for $13,000 in retaliation for killing Tupac.
Two years before Shakur's death, he was shot five times outside of a New York recording studio. The Los Angeles Times article alleged that Diddy was also responsible for that shooting.
Diddy has previously denied any involvement in either the 1994 shooting or in Tupac's 1996 murder.
