A new self-published book titled “Murder Rap” by former LAPD detective Greg Kading highlights one of the many conspiracies around the deaths of rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls: The two young legends demise was set in motion by the mogul formerly known as Puff Daddy and Suge Knight, respectively. The book elaborates on this theory that insists that Diddy paid big bucks to end Tupac’s life, Knight ordered the hit on Smalls in retribution, and that the LAPD put both cases out to pasture.

Kading claims the LAPD has buried evidence in the form of tapes and documents that contain proof of his allegations. The former detective maintains that the powers that be took him off the case just as he was about to wrap things up – but not before he managed to make copies of his extensive case file.

LA Weekly’s in depth report on “Murder Rap,” reveals Crip member Keffe D as a major witness in the death of Tupac Shakur.

“Keffe D tells the cops he was offered $1 million to kill Death Row rapper Tupac Shakur and Suge Knight, the label’s former CEO. The informant tells his interrogators in plain language, albeit at a cool street clip, that Sean Combs — then known as Puff Daddy, the ringmaster of Bad Boy Entertainment, Death Row Records’ bitter cross-country rival — commissioned Shakur’s legendary murder in Vegas in September 1996. (Knight would survive that night’s shooting with a bullet wound to the head)…

In a taped confession fully reviewed by L.A. Weekly, Keffe D says, “[Combs] took me downstairs and he’s like, ‘Man, I want to get rid of them dudes.’ … I was like, ‘We’ll wipe their ass out, quick. It’s nothing.’ … We wanted a million.” In another stunning confession, detailed in LAPD documents reviewed by the Weekly, the mother of one of Knight’s children, identified in Kading’s book as “Theresa Swann,” breaks down in tears, stating that the former Death Row boss gave her the money to pay Wardell “Poochie” Fouse — Knight’s close associate and a fellow member of the Mob Piru Bloods — to kill Smalls.”


15 years later – and counting – the unsolved executions of not one, but two gifted young men, should be enough to indicate the extremely suspect nature of the high profile murders. Kading’s “Murder Rap” may provide one more realistic theory on the Biggie and Pac killings, but how likely will it lead to any significant arrests?

    Both Shug and Puffy(at the time) owning all publishing rights to their artist work, yes they made a ton of money off of them being dead, but to go as far as to say they had their own golden goose’s bumped off is a bit of a stretch IMHO.

      Mr. Man, it may be possible- I’m not saying that it is. However, think about this: There has been a long standing rumor in them music industry that a CEO or label can stand to make more money from a dead performer than one that is alive.

      @Perverted Alchemist – i’m with you on that one, Michael Jackson knew it and he said it himself, now look where we’re at.

    I never would have imagined Diddy having it in him to be a killer. If he did, Karma will be sitting on his couch before it’s all over.

    Isn’t it great that Jay-Z of New York married Beyonce of Texas(who is of Native American and French descent)? In history there were the French Plantangenets who formed the two English Royal Houses: The House of Lancaster(representatively here the House of Knowles-Denereon) and the House of York(representatively the House of Carter-Cartier-Reeves). Each has surnames which reference the Most High God by the Hebrew word in reference to Him, “ORAH(RE/RA)”.

    In America, people of the East may not understand the so called “African -Americans” of the extreme West or how these westerners arrived there, especially to California. Most people of the East coast know about the migration of the darker skinned people from the South to the North and Mid West.

    From the Bible’s viewpoint, Jehovah’s Witnesses know what the future can be for Native Americans and for people of all nations, tribes, and languages. Jehovah God has promised to create “new heavens and a new earth.”-Isaiah 65:17; 2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1, 3, 4.
