Arrest In Tupac Shakur Murder Case Follows Decades Of Conspiracies – Diddy Trending On Twitter

It has been 27 years since the death of Tupac Shakur and according to Fox News Kevin McMahill, sheriff at Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, confirms that 60-year-old Duane “Keffe D” Davis has been arrested over the murder of Tupac Shakur.

NBC reports that the death of Tupac Shakur after a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas remained a high-profile cold case for almost 30 years, stoking rap rivalry conspiracies and media coverage around who would want the influential hip-hop star and actor dead.

Then, a breakthrough: Las Vegas police announced Friday the arrest of a suspect, Duane Keith Davis, one of four people thought to have been in the white Cadillac that pursued Shakur on Sept. 7, 1996.

A grand jury indicted Davis, 60, on a murder charge — an outcome that has surprised few after the former Los Angeles gang leader wrote a 2019 self-published memoir, “Compton Street Legend,” boasting about his involvement as an eyewitness to the shooting.

“Tupac Shakur is a music legend, and this community and worldwide have been wanting justice for Tupac,” Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said at a news conference Friday. “And today, we’re taking that first step.”

Diddy and the conspiracies surrounding him

It wasn’t long before Sean P Diddy Combs started trending on Twitter as people continued to conspire about his involvement with Tupac’s death.

The Shooting:

Tupac Shakur was shot multiple times while riding in a car driven by Death Row Records CEO Marion “Suge” Knight after attending a Mike Tyson boxing match in Las Vegas.

The assailants, who were in a white Cadillac, pulled up alongside Tupac’s vehicle and opened fire, hitting him several times.

Tupac’s Hospitalization:
Tupac was taken to the hospital and underwent surgery to try to save his life. He was in a critical condition but survived for several days before succumbing to his injuries.

The Investigation:

The investigation into Tupac’s murder did not lead to any immediate arrests or convictions.
Various theories and conspiracy theories emerged, alleging the involvement of different individuals and entities in his death.

Sean “Diddy” Combs (Puff Daddy at the time):

Sean “Diddy” Combs, a prominent figure in the music industry, was not directly implicated in Tupac Shakur’s murder.

However, Tupac had accused Combs, as well as Combs’ close associate Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace (The Notorious B.I.G.), of being involved in a 1994 shooting that Tupac survived. Tupac believed this shooting was an attempt on his life.

The East Coast-West Coast hip-hop rivalry of the 1990s intensified these tensions, with Tupac representing the West Coast (Death Row Records) and Combs and Biggie representing the East Coast (Bad Boy Records).

Some fans and conspiracy theorists have suggested that the rivalry and animosity between the East Coast and West Coast hip-hop scenes played a role in Tupac’s murder, but no concrete evidence has emerged to support this claim.
