(AllHipHop News) Former LAPD detectiveGreg Kading is at the center of a media firestorm, because a recent documentary based on his book Murder Rap alleges Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs was involved in the 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur. The film claims Puffy paid a Crip gang member named Duane Keith “Keffe D” Davis $1 million to kill 2Pac and Death Row head Suge Knight.
Kading also investigated the 1997 killing of Bad Boy recording artist Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace. The former LAPD detective spoke to Hot 97 about his Murder Rap doc which presents information about the deaths of the two Hip Hop icons.
“This film is different because we’re not proposing a theory. Everything that precedes this was theoretical, was speculation, what could have happened. We’re not coming at it from that approach. We’re telling you definitively this is what took place with these murders,” explains Kading. “All of the empirical evidence, all of the facts lead you to draw this one and only conclusion. We’re not competing against theories. We’re claiming to know the truth.”
In addition, Kading stated the reason a prosecution has not been brought against Puffy is because many of the people involved in the murder conspiracies have been killed, including the respective two alleged shooters of Pac and Big. Kading believes there will never be anyone convicted of either crime.
Another former LAPD officer backed up Kading’s assertions that the deaths of Pac and Biggie were the result of a gang war involving rival labels Death Row (owned by Knight) and Bad Boy (owned by Combs). Reggie Wright – who was also a bodyguard for 2Pac – told AllHipHop.com in 2014, “Almost everything that pretty much came out in the investigation and the book Murder Rap by Greg Kading I believe is 98-99% accurate.”
