Ice T Questions Why It Took So Long To Arrest Keefe D For Tupac’s Murder

Ice T is trying to understand a few things. 

A Nevada grand jury indicted former gang leader, Duane, “Keefe D” Davis, 60, on Friday (September 29) for Tupac Shakur’s murder. Ice T wants to know why it took law enforcement so long for Tupac’s justice. 

The rapper told All Hip Hop how he felt. He began, “My initial thought was ‘people talk too much.’” He continued,

“I think L.A. knew exactly how this thing played out, I just don’t really understand why it took law enforcement so long because if I say that I’m in a car with somebody that does something, I’m part of the crime. If I go over to your house and ask you for a gun and you give it to me and I go do it, you aided and abetted the crime.” Then he said,

“So my point is that with all the interviews and all the books where dude just happened to say it 100 times on interviews he did: ‘I was in the car’—he said it. No one else said it. He said it. So why? Why? Why would you say that if you didn’t want to get caught? So you know, I got no love for the dude. It was a chain of events that should not have ever happened. It’s all out of my realm of understanding.”

Hip Hop DX points out, that in 2018, Keefe D confessed his role in the killing. Keefe is also the uncle to Orlando Anderson, who was the sole suspect initially arrested for 2Pac’s murder. Orlando always denied it and he unfortunately died in 1998 as a result of a gang-related shooting. 

In 2019, Keefe D released a book, COMPTON STREET LEGEND, telling his story about being in the car when the gunman killed Tupac.

One of the most iconic rappers in hip-hop history died at the young age of 25. Tupac was shot multiple times on Sept. 7, 1996, in a drive-by shooting after stopping at a red light near the Vegas strip. He died a week later at the hospital. 

Authorities say Keefe D planned the deadly attack after his nephew got into an altercation with Tupac at a casino. Mr. Davis will appear in court in a few days, we’ll keep you posted as updates come in.
