In a previous interview with The Art Of Dialogue, Billy Garland, Tupac’s biological father, addressed the long-standing allegations made by former crips member Keefe D, suggesting that his nephew Orlando Anderson was responsible for Tupac’s death. In his assertion, Garland firmly stated that Tupac was set up by the feds, and was under surveillance on the night of his assassination.
“He was being tailed by the government the night of his assassination, he’s being tailed by the government in Quad Studios, it’s a known fact,” claimed Garland. He further added that he believed the situation appeared like a setup and that Orlando Anderson may not have had anything to do with the death of his son.
“It looked like a setup to me. Somebody told this guy [Orlando Anderson] to stand there with the Death Row thing and it pursued to what we had but I don’t think he had anything to do with the death of my son.”
In response to Billy Garland’s comments, Keefe D, also known as Duane Keith Davis, discredited the theory that the government was involved in Tupac’s assassination and dismissed such claims as absurd and baseless, using snide remarks to convey his disbelief.
“What would the government kill him for? That don’t make sense. Why would the government kill him.. like he Vladimir Putin? Come on now… Government had him on the hit list? Come on, man,” Keefe D expressed, adding, “Tupac’s daddy don’t know how the Feds work, that’s his opinion.” Additionally, he accused Tupac of being the aggressor in the altercation with Orlando Anderson, asserting that his nephew was not the one who initiated the confrontation at the MGM Grand.
“My nephew didn’t jump on him, he jumped on my nephew. My nephew was a f**king kid and he was a grown ass man. He was a f**king kid. They was wrong. My nephew never jumped on ‘em, they jumped on my nephew. My nephew didn’t throw a punch. Shit was wrong. Jumpin on a f**king kid.”
Although Pac’s murder remains unsolved, the Las Vegas Police Department (LVMPD) executed a search warrant this week at a residence in Henderson, Nevada, in connection with the murder. The warrant was reportedly linked to Keefe D, who has long been suspected of involvement in Shakur’s killing.
As of now, the LVMPD has not disclosed any details regarding the findings during the search. However, the warrant is considered a significant development in the investigation into Tupac’s murder.
The warrant also comes at a time when renewed interest in the case has emerged, partly due to the popularity of the Hulu documentary series “Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G.” It remains uncertain whether the search warrant will result in new charges or lead to justice for Tupac Shakur who was tragically shot and killed in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996, at the young age of 25.
