The documentary Murder Rap: Inside the Biggie and Tupac Murders, based on the book by former LAPD detective Greg Kading, takes a deep dive into the murder investigations of rap's biggest stars. While the book, which was published in 2011, implicated Puff Daddy in the 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur, the documentary is shedding light on that theory once again.

Murder Rapfeatures a 2008 recorded police interrogation between Kading and gang member Duane "Keffe D" Davis in which Keffe D says he was approached by the Bad Boy CEO twice in an effort to get Pac and Suge Knight killed. According to Keffe D, Puff offered to pay he, Orlando "Baby Lane" Anderson, and Eric “Zip” Martin $1,000,000 for the hit. However, he was never paid because Puff allegedly gave $500,000 to Zip, who in turn never paid the money out.

This Puffy revelation shouldn't be surprising to anyone as Puff was also implicated in Kading's 2011 book and has been rumored to be involved in the infamous failed hit on Shakur's life outside of Quad Studios in New York two years prior to Pac's death. For those that don't know, Orlando Anderson was the crip Tupac, Suge Knight, and Death Row stomped out in the lobby of the MGM Grand for snatching a chain. Anderson died in a gang shootout in 1998. Let's hope these cases get solved in the near future so Big and Pac can finally rest in peace.
