Once again Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs has been implicated as being behind the murder of Tupac Shakur. No intel as to when this is dropping or if Puffy will ever speak on these strong accusations from retired LAPD detective Greg Kading.

Based on his three years working the cases, Kading claims that Sean “Diddy” Combs hired Crips gang member Duane Keith “Keffe D” Davis to kill Shakur and his manager, Marion Hugh “Suge” Knight, for $1 million. He alleges that on the night of Sept. 7, 1996, Keffe D’s nephew, Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, pulled the trigger. Only Shakur was killed.
