Legendary rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur is remembered by fans to this day. The singer was shot in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996, at the age of 25. A recently released Netflix documentary called Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. uncovers details of the mysterious case as a man comes forward confessing to the murder.
Tupac’s murder has been linked to various conspiracies such as corruption by the Los Angeles Police Department, bitter dispute between record labels and the killing of riv al rapper Biggie Smalls in 1997. Many have claimed that Tupac is not actually dead and living in Cuba.
A few hours before he was killed, Tupac and his entourage got into a fight with a gang member Orlando Anderson. The Gangsta Party singer punched Orlando first. Later, police identified Orlando as the person who killed Tupac.
For 20 years, people having been pursuing Orlando’s uncle Keefe D but he has decided to finally speak up as he is now suffering from cancer and wants the truth to be revealed. He then explained that his nephew was badly beaten when they went to look for the late singer.
He mentioned that he was in the company of three people when he went to find Tupac. These included Terrence ‘T-Brown’ Brown who was driving the Cadillac, DeAndre ‘Dre’ Smith and Orlando in the back seat as Keefe himself sat on the passenger seat.
Upon finding Tupac, Keefe with his accomplices reportedly took a U-turn and parked their car parallel to Tupac’s. However, on camera, Keefe refused to disclose the name of the person who pulled the trigger. He said that it was a “street code” but revealed that the gun was fired from the back seat.
In a taped confession, Keefe revealed that Orlando fired at Tupac. He said that he first gave the gun to Dre but he refused to use it, which is when Orlando took over. “He rolled down the window and popped bullets,” said Keefe.
Orlando had denied murdering the legendary rapper. However, he himself was killed in 1998 after a shootout in Los Angeles. No one has been charged with Tupac’s murder to this day.
