According to a recent news report, Brooklyn rapper Foxy Brown is now recognized as a key witness for the prosecution in the Tupac murder trial.

Prosecutors are seeking to have Brown act as a witness and provide evidence that reputed Southside Crip Duane “Keefe D” Davis was in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996, something that Davis has denied.

The Clark County District Attorney’s office is forming a list of witnesses that can place Davis in Vegas on the night of ‘Pac’s murder, but Keefe D says that there is mo proof that he was in Sin City on that fateful night in September. According to reports, Foxy allegedly saw Keefe D in Vegas and even interacted with him before ‘Pac’s shooting later that night.

In his book Compton Street Legend, Davis admitted to meeting with Brown the night of ‘Pac’s murder, but now says that anything he said in that book was fabricated.

In the book, Davis wrote: “As I walked up to the driver’s side window, I noticed that the rapper, Foxy Brown, was in the car with [Eric Von] Zip. So he instructed her to step out of the car and motioned for me to jump in. Zip had a hidden compartment that he opened up, reached in, and pulled a black .40 Glock out. He turned to me and said, ‘It’s time to get the money.’”

He continued, “Zip handed me the 17-shot pistol, which I promptly put down the back waist of my pants. I hopped out of the car, held the door open for Foxy Brown to get back in, closed the door, and they pulled off.“

Prosecutors are now trying to get Brown, whose real name is Inga Merchand, to corroborate the story told in Davis’ book on the witness stand.

The trial has been pushed back to November, with Davis’ new lawyer asking for more time to go over the case’s discovery. The 60-year-old Davis is currently sitting behind bars with a $750K bail, but could go home on a an ankle monitor if he can come up with the bail money.

Compton PD: Keefe D’s Nephew Bragged About The Tupac Murder Days After the Las Vegas Shooting

Da5kiuWW4AAbu95

Duane “Keefe D” Davis is currently behind bars and awaiting trial for the 27-year-old murder of pop culture icon/freedom fighter Tupac Shakur. Still, an officer in the Compton Police Department says that several fingers point to Keefe’s nephew, the late Orlando Anderson.

Robert Ladd, a Compton PD Gang Unit officer, said during an exclusive interview with Vlad TV that several eyewitnesses identified Anderson as the triggerman and the miscommunication between the Las Vegas Police Dept. and the Compton PD allowed a white Cadillac that was allegedly involved in the murder to dodge apprehension.

“Within the next few days [of the shooting], we started getting calls from informants,” he said. “And our first ones were saying, ‘Hey it’s Keefe [and] Orlando was the shooter.’ They’re telling us that Bubble Up and Big Dre were in the car. This is days after. This is informants telling us. And it’s just not us; other people had informants too. [Former Compton Police chief] Reggie Sr., this guy in charge of the narcotics unit, Bobby Baker — they were also getting calls with the same information.”

He continued, “So it wasn’t just us getting information about this. We were told that Orlando came back and started to brag about it — not Keefe D, not Big Dre, not Bubble Up. It was just Orlando. Everyone’s telling us, ‘Orlando’s coming back, he’s bragging about killing them.’ You know, rightfully so, probably. But this is within his own gang. So then the word spread and people start calling us.”

Keefe D has now fired his public defender and hired a new attorney, with the letter of substitution filed on January 18. Records show that Carl Arnold, a Howard University School of Law graduate who has been named to the National Trial Lawyers Top 100, is now representing the ex-gang leader and accused killer.

Explosive Audio Submitted as Evidence Alleges Diddy’s Involvement in Tupac Shakur’s Murder

Screen Shot 2024 01 16 at 9.45.18 AM

Explosive audio recordings have been submitted to court as evidence in the murder case of iconic rapper Tupac Shakur, implicating hip hop mogul P Diddy in the assassination. The audio features Duane ‘Keefe D’ Davis, a West Coast gangster and a suspect in Tupac’s murder, boasting about Diddy allegedly orchestrating the hit on the rap legend.

According to reports by The Sun, the chilling 2-hour and 25-minute secret police interview took place in 2008 with LAPD, where Keefe D claimed that Diddy offered him $1 million for Tupac’s assassination. The audio recording, now a key piece of evidence in the murder trial, has surfaced as Las Vegas prosecutors make their case against Keefe D.

In the disturbing tape, Keefe D, 60, can be heard laughing and joking with police about Diddy’s alleged involvement in Tupac’s killing in September 1996 in Las Vegas. The gangster claims that, without firm evidence, he oversaw the fatal shooting of Tupac at the request of Diddy during the mid-1990s.

Keefe alleges that Diddy wanted to eliminate the competition, specifically targeting rival record label boss Suge Knight and Tupac amid the East/West Coast rap wars. The former Compton Crip insists that the million-dollar reward was proposed by Diddy, who has consistently denied any involvement in Tupac’s shooting.

Prosecutors submitted the audio file to highlight Keefe D’s confessions about being a key figure in the murder. However, it is crucial to note that many sections of the tape contain unsubstantiated allegations against Diddy.

In the recording, Keefe D boasts about growing close to Diddy through mutual friend and gangster Eric “Zip” Martin. He details how Puffy discussed his disdain for Knight and allegedly expressed a desire to eliminate both Knight and Tupac. The gang kingpin claims the assassination order was given privately, and Diddy had multiple conversations with him about “killing both of them.”

Tupac was shot on the evening of September 7, 1996, while driving to a club with Knight. Despite Keefe D’s claims of his involvement, Diddy’s alleged connection to the murder remains unproven.

The gangster alleges that he never received payment for the shooting, raising questions about the authenticity of his claims. The submitted audio provides a chilling glimpse into Keefe D’s unremorseful demeanor as he discusses orchestrating the murder of the rap icon.

As the trial unfolds, the shocking revelations in the audio file may reshape the narrative surrounding Tupac Shakur’s tragic death, shedding light on alleged connections within the hip hop industry that have remained hidden for decades.

Tupac Murder Suspect Keefe D Granted $750K Bail

Screenshot 2024 01 10 at 6.38.01 AM

Several news reports have confirmed that the man Las Vegas Police say is responsible for the shooting death of the late cultural icon Tupac Shakur has been granted bail and is able to walk out of jail until his criminal trial.

Attorneys for Duane “Keefe D” Davis were able to convince a judge at a court hearing on Tuesday that Davis was not a danger to society or a flight risk if he were released on bail until his trial. Davis, 60, was first indicted for the death of Shakur this past September and has remined behind bars ever since.

Davis has bragged via interviews that he was in the car that let off the shots that killed Shakur while riding in the passenger seat of Suge Knight’s BMW following the Mike Tyson vs. Bruce Seldon fight at the MGM Las Vegas on September 7, 1996. Even though Davis was admittedly not the trigger man, he is the only survivor from 27 years ago that prosecutors are able to charge for the murder.

Davis’ lawyers argued that if he was so dangerous, why did it take authorities almost 30 years to bring him in, even though it has been wel documented that Davis was present in the car that killed ‘Pac in a drive-by shooting. The lawyers also held fast to the not guilty plea, saying he only said all that stuff about Pac’s murder for entertainment/monetary gain, but prosecutors pushed back, arguing this guy was a cold-blooded killer and absolutely should not be out on the streets.

Davis’ $750K bail isn’t a small amount and unless Davis can get someone tp post that type of bread, he will remain behind bars until the trial. If he is released, he will be ordered to wear an ankle monitor while on home confinement.
