50 Cent Insinuates Diddy Had Involvement In Tupac’s Murder
In recent months the investigation surrounding Tupac Shakur’s 1996 murder has been reopened. Once again, this a hot topic in hip-hop. While it is still unsolved, 50 Cent took to the internet to give his opinion on who he thinks pulled the trigger that night.
“Damn so pac got lined by brother love. LOL Time to Lawyer up, s— might get sticky,” 50 tweeted Monday (Oct. 9). Diddy has referred to himself as “Brother Love” recently as he legally changed his name to “Love” from Sean. At the time of Tupac’s murder, there was a heavy beef between West Coast and East Coast rap. Marion “Suge” Knight was a hip-hop mogul on the West Coast and Diddy represented the East Coast, which is most likely why 50 chose to troll the Bad Boys Record founder using the outstanding beef as a motive.

Shakur was killed on Sept. 7, 1996, in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. He was sitting inside a black car with Marion “Suge” Knight. Knight, at the time, was the CEO of Death Row Records. On the night of Sept. 7, 1996, police say the two stopped at a red light near the iconic Las Vegas Strip when a white Cadillac pulled up next to them, and gunfire erupted. The “Dear Mama” rapper was shot multiple times. He succumbed to his injuries a week later in a local hospital.
Last month, Duane “Keffe D” Davis was arrested for his alleged involvement with the 1996 shooting. Over the years, he has admitted to his involvement in the shooting. He published a memoir, Compton Street Legend, in 2019 where he stated he was in the car shooter’s car the night of Tupac’s murder. However, he never admitted to being the one who pulled the trigger. He claimed that his now-deceased nephew, Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, was the one who killed the rapper that night. No arrests had ever been made in connection to the rapper’s death until now.
