Hip-Hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has responded to controversial allegations that he ordered the hit of Tupac Shakur in September of 1996.
The shocking allegations are contained in a new book titled “Murder Rap,” which was written by former LAPD detective Greg Kading.
Kading wrote “Murder Rap” after spending three years heading up an elite unit that was formed to investigate the death of Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace, who was murdered in Los Angeles in March of 1997.
During the investigation, Kading claims that he elicited confessions from associates of Sean Combs and Marion “Suge” Knight, both of home are accused of hiring gunmen that would eventually kill each rapper.
Kading claims that Combs hired Southside Crip member Duane Keith “Keffe D.” Davis to kill Tupac, while Knight retaliated by hiring a man named Wardell “Poochie” Fouse to kill Biggie Smalls.
A confession from Keffe D. is on tape, while a former girlfriend of nights confessed to Kading to receiving money to hire a killer to murder Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace, on behalf of Knight.
In the taped confession, Davis claims Combs offer him $1 million to carry out the murders of Tupac Shakur and Suge Knight.
Tupac Shakur died from his gunshot wounds or September 13th, 1996, while Suge Knight suffered minor injuries.
Just six months later, Notorious B.I.G. was gunned down on March 9th, 1997, in front of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
In an exclusive statement to AllHipHop.com, Sean “Diddy” Combs denied any knowledge of the shooting.
“The story is pure fiction and completely ridiculous,” Sean “Diddy” Combs told AllHipHop.com.
“Murder Rap” is in stores now and is reportedly one of the top selling books on amazon.com.
